Slightly Stoopid are delightfully predictable on the recently released Top Of The World. Smooth guitars, funky bass, catchy vocals with ample harmonies, and plenty of reggae, dub, punk, and other influences mixed in. The title track starts this SoCal party record off; long-time fans are rewarded with a funky-dubby version of “Devil’s Door;” “Way You Move” has vocals that perfectly slide in the ear; “Drink Professionally” may end up at reggae-loving frat parties, but it still has a great groove. The guest artists reflect the varying influences of the band, with Barrington Levy, Angelo Moore, Chali 2na, and G. Love (amongst others) making an appearance. For instrumentalists, “Deal With Rhythm” and “Rhythm Street” are both nice and simple jams, and while overall this is a rather mellow record, it is enjoyably upbeat and well worth a listen:

And don’t worry, there is a hidden punk rock jam at the end if you’re wondering where that side of Slightly Stoopid has gone…
