So what if this is all material from '92-'97? This is intended as a retrospective a "Chronicle" of what he has done. Not only does it have an excellent, punny title, but it features some master hooks. Dre's production, which is what is showcased on this album, not his rapping as the last reviewer assumed, is phenomenal. He is a pioneer and shaped the whole musical landscape for much of the '90s and complete redefined the genre of rap.
