Crazy Town are a hard band to describe as rock or rap, as unfortunately they are not great at either genre. The Gift Of Game is a record almost all of us have heard in the form of the hit song Butterfly, but otherwise it is a bit of a forgotten relic of a genre past its prime. I have a difficult time believing even in 1999 anyone sat down seriously and listened to this album from front to back. The Gift Of Game offers up songs in a few different styles, the heavier and nu-metal style songs such as Think Fast, more dance and synth oriented songs such as Darkside and Butterfly, and then. It is as if the band pulled together the most superficial aspects of all of the previously mentioned genres and crafted an album with the only purpose of annoying teenager’s parents. The target demographic for this record is pretty confusing.

They first released harder songs "Toxic" and "Darkside," which flopped. Crazy Town toured with Buckcherry, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Methods Of Mayhem for two years before this became a hit. Crazy Town lead singer Shifty Shellshock (Seth Binzer) wrote this song about the girl he was seeing at the time. Most of the group's songs were full of macho swagger, which made her wary of Shellshock, so he set out to write something more romantic.
