Ice-T: Home Invasion (Virgin/Rhyme Syndicate)

Andy Gill, Q, May 1993

ICE-T'S FIFTH album – his first post-riot record and, more importantly, his first following the 'Cop Killer' brouhaha and his subsequent departure from Sire – opens with a typically hyperbolic language warning, and ends with 'Ain't A Damn Thing Changed', which is truer than even he thinks, Home Invasion being more of a backward glance than a move forward.
