By 2016, the Dirty Heads had been in the business of mixing pop, punk, reggae, and rap for almost ten years, but this self-titled release is different than their earlier recordings, as it is more polished and comes with that radio-worthy punch. Don't think of it as diluted, however, as the crew still connects the funky dots between Sublime and Wyclef, plus the highlights are numerous with no filler included. ~ David Jeffries
