3rd Bass's initial novelty was their pale skin color, but he Cactus Album showed that the only crutch Serch and Prime Minister Pete Nice relied on was the one propping up Nice's bum leg. Def Jam's choice to add 3rd Bass to its roster resulted in a late '80s burner, much of it due to pre-sample clearance wanderlust. Gary Wright's "Love Is Alive," for example, is wonderfully layered into "Wordz of Wisdom." The intro to Aretha Franklin's "Think" propels its first hit "The Gas Face." The Emotions' "Best of My Love" gets the hip-hop flip on the summertime money shot "Brooklyn-Queens." The duo shows an enviable chemistry and mastery of metaphor. This version also contains one of the funniest outtakes: "Flippin' Off the Wall Like Lucy Ball."
