A messy sandwich of fine print, screwy politics and purse-lipped lawyers had strong-armed the L.O.X. for a number of years, until Diddy decided to set them free and void their contract. Since, Jadakiss has crept into obscurity, Styles P cracked his leg bone in a car accident, and Sheek Louch remained the group's mascot. A ho hum list of events by any standards, but the chilly backdrop for "We're Back", a comeback single of unparalleled significance that promises to induce a bad case of goose bumps. "More bodies, more crack, more guns” is not exactly the makings of revolutionary rhetoric, but seldom have the L.O.X been considered pioneers, just bodyguards of traditional enrapturing aggressive music. Underscored by sparse haunting organ keys, the group's manifesto rivals only that of Bush, "I can drop the jewel or the bomb, I just hope it hit you” in the category of beautiful ignorant behavior. Oh, yeah the L.O.X. are back. - Rodney Dugue
