Reception[edit]

  • Rolling Stone (10/29/92, p. 70) - 3.5 Stars - Good Plus - "With a groovy swagger, this collection of hard-core hip-hop tracks offers many moments of technicolor snap and crackle, and also titled House of Pain."
  • Q magazine (12/92, p. 124) - 3 Stars - Good - "...their music is of the dense, hard-hitting school of hip hop...the group have absorbed black rap's musical lessons and create a satisfying platform for their above average deliveries..."
  • The Source (9/92, p. 57) - 3.5 Stars - Good Plus - "...a very solid and at times exceptional album...imagine if Licensed To Ill wasn't an upper middle class Jewish thing but rather a working class Irish thang...the atmosphere is like that of a cross between a frat party and a bar room brawl..."
  • NME (11/7/92, p. 34) - 6 - Good - "...contains some creative and accomplished rap music..." [3]
