Black Eyed Peas - Monkey Business

Still, there are plenty of early Peas-heads who remain disgruntled about the  group's leap to the pop world. But go ahead and call them sellouts. Lead lyricist doesn't mind. "It's cool. It makes me feel good because that means they really liked our  first record."

bepI wouldn’t say I’m disgruntled, I just liked their old sound better.  Not sure I’m getting into their new album.  It’s pretty much pop, with a lot of contributing artists (Jack Johnson, Sting, Justin Timberlake…).  It’s can be catchy stuff - which pop is supposed to be right?
