AllMusic Review by Leo Stanley
Brownside's second album Eastside Drama finds an intriguing balance between edgy hardcore rap and funky Latino hip-hop. Although the group's lyrics are occasionally perfunctory, the music is vital and energetic, making such weaknesses a little easier to overlook. Eastisde Drama remains an imperfect album, but it is much more interesting than many of Brownside's contemporaries, and that alone is worth something.
