The New York Times’ Music Critics Includes ICP’s “Great Milenko: 20th Anniversary Edition” in their “The Year in Boxed Sets” Article

The music critics from The New York Times put out an article titled “The Year in Boxed Sets, From David Bowie to Weird Al” where they selected the year’s most notable boxed set collections. David Bowie, Garth Brooks, GZA, Frank Zappa, Elvis and yes, even Weird Al’s 15 disc box set “Squeeze Box: The Complete Recordings Of Weird Al Yankovic” made the list.

Right in there longside everyone else is J & Shaggy for their masterpiece “The Great Milenko: The 20th Anniversary Edition” box set!

This is some very dope news in this ninja’s opinion because the Insane Clown Posse are getting recognition for something, and are being included in something that they normally wouldn’t be. And it’s the fucking New York Times!

INSANE CLOWN POSSE: ‘THE GREAT MILENKO’ (20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION) Island/UMe; two CDs, one DVD, $49.98

It may seem odd now, but for a time in the late 1990s and early 2000s, the theatrically gory horrorcore innovator duo Insane Clown Posse was signed to a major label. “The Great Milenko,” the first album from that partnership, is a lo-fi curiosity: Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope come off like Beastie Boys starring in a Troma film. The music is intermittently great, and sometimes groan-worthy, but always fascinating. This expanded reissue includes a bonus disc of outtakes and, most importantly, a DVD of the 1997 documentary “Shockumentary,” with oodles of excellent footage of the early-days Juggalo faithful. J.C.

    This record had one line that made look at ICP different.
    ‘Fuck yeah, throw my Pro Wings on my feet’ Milenko was the first record i heard in ’99 and i was wearing an old ass pair of Pro Wings that i’d bought in ’95 for $6 (regular price) when i was 11 with some spare lunch change.
    And when i heard that shit the first time and shat my pants, i was so flabbergasted as to why the fuck youd rap about $6 shoes and 79 cent Pop that it became a mission to find out. I was like ‘who raps about being broke? It makes no sense!’

    I hope to never see another fucking post about Milkeno for the next decade. ICP’s existence is that album. Every show they play half that fucking album. This year there multiple tours of the entire thing lol Every juggalo worships it. Look, its their magnum opus, I know, I love it too, but it’s getting stale.

    If juggalos want ICP to try harder on their new shit, quit giving them all your money for the old shit and not supporting new shit. When bang pow boom and death pop dropped they played tracks from those albums on their tours, lots of music videos too. Missing Link has 3 albums of songs to choose from, they barely play those at all and we got 1 video? lol the fuck

    fuck man whine like a little bitch much? what are you tryna say? you hate milenko? you like milenko? Its their most popular album so ofcourse their gonna play alot of it at shows. it wasnt multiple tours ya tool box it was multiple legs of the same tour. and Im guessing they try to steer away from the Missing Link albums at shows cos Otis’ bitch ass is all over them and they want nothing to do with that dog.

    Although I disagree with some of what this ninja is saying, I love Milenko, but have always wondered why the ICP live stage show canon has always included most of the same ol songs repeated over n over again. Mainly an array of songs off the first six. I would however like to see them perform more newer songs on stage from bpb or mdp, shit even some songs off bizzar/bizaar would be nice. I don’t think I’ve ever seen them play Take me Away live…

    We need way more from Bizzar/Bizaar IMO. Along with Hell’s Pit and BPB.

    Y’all are so sensitive. I’m just saying it’s the same old same old. Yeah I don’t consider it their magnum opus but many people do it seems. Def need more track rarities and some new shit
