The Tempest: A Stormy Comeback for Insane Clown Posse

The Tempest is the tenth studio album by American hip hop duo Insane Clown Posse. Released in 2007, the album marks the return of producer Mike E. Clark, who had a falling-out with the duo in 2000. However, he did not collaborate directly with ICP, and would not do so until their 2009 album Bang!

The album's concept is based on a dark carnival ride called The Tempest, which takes its passengers on a violent and chaotic journey through different scenarios. The album features guest appearances from Twiztid, Boondox, Zug Izland, and The Dayton Family. The album's lead single was "The Tower", which tells the story of a disgruntled employee who goes on a shooting rampage at his workplace.

The Tempest received mixed reviews from critics, who praised the production and some of the songs, but criticized the lyrics and the lack of originality. The album debuted at number 20 on the Billboard 200, selling 33,000 copies in its first week. It was certified gold by the RIAA in 2010.The album's title and theme were inspired by a painting of a stormy sea that Violent J saw at a hotel. He envisioned a carnival ride that would take people through different worlds and scenarios, such as a haunted forest, a pirate ship, and a futuristic city. He also wanted to make an album that would showcase the different styles and influences of ICP, such as rock, metal, funk, and country.

The Tempest was recorded at several studios, including The Lotus Pod in Detroit, Michigan, The Funhouse in Nashville, Tennessee, and The Saltmine in Phoenix, Arizona. The album features several samples from movies and TV shows, such as The Wizard of Oz, The Warriors, The Twilight Zone, and The Munsters. The album also features several skits that connect the songs and the concept of the ride.

The album received mixed reactions from fans and critics alike. Some fans praised the album for its diversity and creativity, while others felt that it was too different from ICP's previous work and that it lacked the horrorcore elements that they were known for. Critics also had mixed opinions on the album, with some praising the production and the humor, while others criticizing the lyrics and the concept. The album was nominated for Album of the Year at the 2007 Underground Music Awards, but lost to Tech N9ne's Everready (The Religion).The Tempest is one of the most experimental and diverse albums by Insane Clown Posse. It showcases their ability to blend different genres and styles, as well as their sense of humor and storytelling. The album is not for everyone, as it contains explicit lyrics, violent themes, and controversial topics. However, for fans of ICP and underground rap, The Tempest is a fun and adventurous ride that will keep them entertained and surprised.The Tempest is not only an album, but also a live show that ICP performed in 2007 and 2008. The show featured a large stage set that resembled a carnival ride, with props, lights, and effects. The show also featured several opening acts, such as Twiztid, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, Boondox, and DJ Clay. The show was a success, as it attracted thousands of fans and sold out several venues. The show was also filmed and released as a DVD in 2008. ec8f644aee
