2 Live Crew: Banned in the U.S.A.: The Luke LP Featuring the 2 Live Crew (Luke/Atlantic) ***
Chuck Eddy, Rolling Stone, 6 September 1990
ODDLY ENOUGH, given the unprecedented barrage of anxiety Luther Campbell's foul mouth has inspired, the 2 Live Crew doesn't have a remarkably inventive mind forsin. The Crew has almost invariably proved most entertaining when it has cleaned up its act for radio, as in the hit version of 'Me So Horny', wherein Luther Campbell (known as Luke Skyywalker before George Lucas sued) primed his bass thump with cryptic Delta-blues-style fear and loathing, likening his love-'em-and-leave-'em self to a dog and to Georgie Porgie.
