How to follow the phenomenally-successful The Chronic album must have caused superstar rap producer Dr Dre more than a few sleepless nights. Five years on, for 2001 he's gathered a plethora of prime, new rap talent around him, including his prodigy-of-the-moment, Eminem, and Xzibit (who duet on boombastic anthem "What's The Difference?"); and is reunited with former compadres Snoop Dogg, Kurupt and MC Ren. While the lyrical preoccupations remain the same--sex, sess (marijuana), girls, guns and cars--the predictably flawless production has been cranked up way beyond the G-Funk formula that found him fame. "Still D.R.E." is driven by the persistent pluck of a harmonium; "Light Speed" is all spooky, retro-future funk; and "Forgot About Dre" boosts kinetic, Timbaland-style beats with insistent strings and squalls of guitar. All in all, there's more than enough on here to satisfy the hardcore that Dre is back and business is booming. --Chris Campion

5.0 out of 5 stars Best CD I own July 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
I consider myself to have a wide variety of musical tastes. I like Bob Marley, The Clash, Rancid, the musical "Rent" as well as the soundtrack for Oh Brother Where Art Thou. Point is, if I like music, I don't try to hide it. N.W.A.'s "Straight Outta Compton" was the first rap album I bought, when I was in 7th grade. I got really into the N.W.A. family, regardless of feuds and such, who was more popular or not. I was big into oldschool rap for awhile, not really giving the new school a chance, as I could hear it on the radio and it jsut wasnt the same as the good old school stuff.
Public Enemy, Run D.M.C., Wu Tang, N.W.A., and then the solo's from all Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Dr Dre and MC Ren were all great. I loved Dr. Dre's "The Chronic" so much, that I picked this up from eBay for $6, and it changed my views on new school rap. As I've said, I own albums of Bob Marley, The Clash, Rancid, Korn, Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sex Pistols,...a wide variety. This album is just so honest and personal that you can't not like it. The beats are sick as well, but I like the whole family aspect of Dr Dre best. He brought Snoop Dogg into the industry, and he revolutionized rap with The Chronic, as well as Straight Outta Compton, and now, a 3rd time, with 2001.
Friends of his died, Eazy-E, Tupac... this CD is a tribute to them. Best CD in existance

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT crap... AWSOME May 21 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was shocked when someone gave this CD the worst review then said to get Eazy E... i like Eazy E too but the point is that Dre made Eazy E famous in the first place... this album is one of those CDs you can just put in and listen to and rap along to even if its the first time you've heard the song. Eminem and Dre in "Forgot About Dre" are the perfect combination, followed by the next track "The Next Episode" a great classic. Dre is the master of beats and although some lyrics are slow in a few verses they still flow evenly with the beat and prove a point...
My Favorite tracks are:
The Watcher (like how eminem did the chorus and dres rhymes just mix perfectly with his beats)
Still DRE (just a great song)
Forgot About Dre (know the song by heart and the beat is a masterpiece. eminems speed and perfect rhyme scheme make it excelent. my fav dre verses are in this song dre definatly shows full talent in this one)
The Next Episode (great beat awsome finish on this one, snoop and dre def hav great verses... just a classic to rap along to)
One more thing, i love Kurrupts verses i think hes got alot of skills but just not the full fame he deserves, would like to see more of him in the future along with his little brother Roscoe that released his album "Philaphornia" which i think was awsome and one of my best buys.
Definatly get this album not only does it show the rapper that started this game it shows the tru talent of many other artists out there.

Though Eminem's debut THE SLIM SHADY LP was incredibly witty and funny and gave some hints of greater things to come, the real sign that good, real hardcore hip-hop was coming back was this: Dre's awesome, criminally underrated sequel to THE CHRONIC. In this album, Dre accomplishes too many things to list: He let's Death Row-loving haters know he's still the same old Dre in "Still D.R.E.", he reunites with his legendary sidekick Snoop Dogg (who does his best post-DOGGYSTYLE work in the banging "F!#% You" and "The Next Episode"), makes it clear he still loves to have his sidekicks make you "forget about dre" (Eminem's verses in that song and "What's The Difference" are among his illest and most quotable lyrics ever), let's a bunch of supporting mc's get their chance to rip the mic for a couple of minutes in tracks like "Housewife" and "Bang Bang", breaks the gangsta mood at the end of the album to deliver a deep and heartfelt eulogy to his murdered younger brother with the help of Mary J. Blige's hallmark vocals in "The Message", and, throughout THE WHOLE ALBUMm with kickass beat after kickass beat proves why he is almost unanimously accepted as The Greatest Hip-Hop Producer Of All-Time, regardless how much time had passed between "The Chronic" and this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not The Chronic, but CERTAINLY not bad!!!!! Feb. 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
"They said Dre fell off; how n***a? My last album was The Chronic"
___ Dr. Dre, " Still D.R.E"
Come on now,Dre;be honest! For a while, you DID fall off; and if I recall(and note I recall it regretfully), your last album was Dr. Dre Presents The Aftermath. Dre left Deathrow records in 1996, not only himself proclaiming gangsta rap dead, but looked to forge in a new direction. But when he found that being a solid citizen didn't work for him,he decided to return to what he knows best, and that the hardcore G-funk that he helped pioneer a decade earlier. Speaking of that,how many people do you know that have changed the face and direction of hip hop or any music THREE times? Dr. Dre is that good, and that influential.On his "comeback" album(remember, he says that people forgot about him), he looks to the past and the future to build this momentum of this album. Old Deathrow friends Nate Dogg and Kurupt show love on Xsplosive and Ho's A Housewife respectively;and what would anything Dre does be without Mr. Snoop Dogg! Snoop and Dre keep the aforementioned Still D.R..E and The Next Episode funky enough,even his old N.W.A bandmate MC Ren shows up on Some L.A. N****s. Dre has also apparently forged new relationships on the way;Xzibit, who has always been one of my favorite lyricists, drops some s**t on What's The Difference, but a certain blonde haired, pale skin wunderkind not only steals the show on that song, but on the album's best song, Forgot About Dre. This album is a absoute winner form top to bottom; his next album, reportedly called Detox, is supposedly supposed to be his last album(how many times have you heard a rapper say that?!), and is supposed to be the most advanced hip hop album ever.I don't doubt that for a second; now if he could only get that long awaited N.W.A reunion going.......
