I'm at a loss. Royter?
...I would start with the single "Who let the dogs out?", in fact there really is no such thing as a bad Baha single as "You All Dat" and "That's the way to do it" testify.
For further listening I would say that all early LPs are worth your money (with particular note to 1994s excellent "Kalik") but avoid the album "Who let the dogs out?" itself as this is mostly the title track plus some dire and ultimately regrettable filler.
Far better, and most unexpected, is the follow up to 'Dogs' - the LP "2 Zero 0-0" which came out in 2001. Hailed as their "Kid A" the album sees The 'Men neatly sidestepping the trappings of their near one-hit wonderdom as they mix their Junkanoo revivalist sound, minimalist electronica and, of course, their trademark shouting.
Many believe that the misogynistic artwork and crass lyrics are to blame for the album missing the end of year lists leaving a disillusioned Baha Men to release 2 pale retreads of their "Dogs" period before dissolving after the woeful "Holla" in 2004. Spank Rock would later emulate the same sounds pioneered on "2 Zero 0-0" to respectable commercial success and critical acclaim.
