The overwhelming genius of Masta Rat and Doc Watch-Out came together in their Laramie recording studio for one final full-length album in 2001, Go Poetry! Harkening back to the hardcore roots they never fully left behind, the Dwellaz embarked on another audio misadventure full of traditional bitch slappin', shootin' shit up and being tough asses in general. If their street cred was ever in doubt, Go Poetry answered the question of "Are these guys for real?" with a resounding "Um, sure."

Using the same time-honored techniques the Dwellaz employeed on their first two albums, Go Poetry! blows up even harder than before thanks to an upgrade to digital technology. Gone are the days when one can hear the clicks of the "record" buttons being pressed on and off on the 4-track. Go Poetry! is the most listenable of the three studio albums though some fans may regret the smoothing of the rough edges that so characterized Dwellaz music on their previous releases.

Coining new terms is an instant win for the next-trend-savvy Dwellaz and "Ackabadacabading," "Wabop" and especially "Green Twig" all saw exciting followings on the dance floor with their own unique dance moves. The Slumdwellaz pay tribute to those who have payed the way before them inculding Rudy from Survivor, a waitress at a Mexican resturant (Song for An(orexia) and Jimi Hendrix (If you can't think, Steal). Go Poetry! is also a must for long-time Dwellaz fans as plenty of early unreleased material finds it's way onto the disc. "From the Vault #3" showcases the immature but nigh-perfect rhyming ferocity of a young Doc Watch-Out. And there are plenty of other hits as well, from the rocking guitars of "Hot or Not Dot Com" to the infectious south-of-the-border sound of "Little Clam."

Go Poetry marks the end of an era. The Dwellaz went on to bigger and better things: Doc Watch-Out to a successful solo career and Masta Rat to an equally successful career as the frontman for industrial band Hijackalope. But that special something lives on here with Go Poetry!
