Product Description

1989's Straight Outta Compton, by Dre's previous outfit N.W.A., may have shined the public spotlight on the genre, but The Chronic legitimized it. That is not to say that Snoop Doggy Dogg (The Chronic marks his debut) and Dre's raps are for everyone; the subject matter is the sex, drugs, violence, and politics of South Central Los Angeles, and the phrasing is explicit, to say the least. But The Chronic's real genius is the music. By breeding hip-hop, jazz (studio instrumentation includes saxophones and flutes), funk, and soul (sampled artists include Parliament, Donny Hathaway, and Isaac Hayes), Dre creates downright intoxicating grooves. If you can't feel The Chronic pulsating through your veins, maybe your heart's not pumping. --Bill Crandall

This is great album.
But the description has the format listed as "LP Record" when it is actually a "Japanese reissue packaged in a miniature LP sleeve"

To borrow a phrase from Dr. "off the hook" Dre, this CD is "realer than the real deal Holyfield" - and that's just for starters!!!! There's just something everlastingly organic and hip about this well written, well produced album that makes it truly classic. The world was introduced to Doc Dre and Snoop Doggy Dogg for the first time, and the world was forever changed. Just as Pearl Jam and Nirvana were taking over another sector of the music market in the early '90s, so too were Dre and Snoop, who were hardcore guys that made approachability their stock-in-trade appeal.
When one thinks of innovative rap music, one must consider Doc Dre - on the real; realer than real deal Holyfield, in fact. Dre is like the Mutt Lange of the rap world, except he boldly exposes himself everywhere in the process of making records. "Da Chronic" is where it all began for Dre.
Music for the masses made by a master and his accompanying "dogg" cohort, Dre and Snoop "da Godfather" Doggy Dogg are going to be the Rolling Stones of the rap 'n' roll world.

Every once in a while, there is an album that comes along that completly changes a genre of music forever. For rap, it was Dr. Dre's "The Chronic". Not only setting a new standard for West Coast hip-hop but changing the face of mainstream rap all together, Dre laced "The Chronic" with some of the most amazing funk-inspired production that anyone had ever heard. It wasn't just the beats that made it either. Dre boasted a red-hot roster of future superstars like Kurupt, Daz, Warren G, RBX, Lady Of Rage, Nate Dogg, and a young phenom out of Long Beach named Snoop Doggy Dogg.
Dre and Snoop's chemistry was one of the things that attracted fans to "The Chronic". Snoop's laid-back flow mixed perfectly with his production mentor as they went back and forth on classic records like "Nuthin' But A G-Thang", "B--ches Ain't Sh-t" and "Lil' Ghetto Boy". Dr. Dre was out to prove he could make it on his own with this solo endevor and he succeeded on every level possible. Along the way, Dre took some time out to diss his former N.W.A. ally, Eazy-E, on "F--kin' With Dre Day". Eazy wasn't the only one on the Death Row "hit list" as Dre and Snoop also took shots at 2 Live Crew's Luther Campbell and New York rapper Tim Dog.
Snoop wasn't the only Dr. Dre protege who made a name for himself with "The Chronic". Kurupt's opening verse on "Stranded On Death Row" is to this day, one of the very best guest verses I've heard. The hilarious Warren G phone conversation that opens up "Deeez Nuts" is just absolute comedy. The track itself is amazing as well with Nate Dogg crooning along as a young Daz steps to the mic. To be honest, every track on this album sounds like a single in one way or the other.

I can't BELIEVE that anyone would be morally capable of giving this classic less than 5 stars, and I am honestly stunned to read some of the negative (and ill-informed) customer opinions below. But hey, it takes a nation of millions I guess. Negative opinions notwithstanding, this album is an absolute CLASSIC, and defined the G-funk milieu for the decade of the 1990's (if not beyond). When I first heard "Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang" coming out of car stereos in 1992, it was obvious that the song was destined for instant classic status. For those who weren't listening to popular music back then, I think it's impossible to fully appreciate the HUGE impact that Dre and Snoop had... not just on "hip hop culture" but on pop music as a whole. "The Chronic" and "Doggystyle" were EVERYWHERE in '92. These guys really put the "West Coast sound" on the map, and are the natural heirs to the Parliament/Funkadelic mantle (I used to think that the P-funk connection was just a case of Dre's overweening pride, but as time goes by, I think his claim to the P-funk throne was and is 100% legit).
Anyway, this is a classic album and is a must-have for anyone who appreciates American pop music. 5 stars beeeyotch!

Did Dr.Dre set hip hop on fire with this album or what?!!! In 1993, hip hop heads weren't prepared for this one, as Death Row came through and literally dominated the hip hop scene. The Chronic is a gritty MASTERPIECE, one of the greatest albums to EVER be released. This album also has the reputation of being POSSIBLY the best produced album that Dre has been responsible for. It put Snoop Dogg on the map, and the world hasn't been the same since. Here's the review:
Album Highlights: The ENTIRE album, no filler on this one.
Production: Thumbs WAY up, Dre at his supreme best.
Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs up.
Originality: Thumbs up.
The Last Word: This album is SO AWESOME,from start to finish. Everything you could possibly want out of a gangsta album, THIS IS IT. There will NEVER AGAIN be an album this powerful in hip hop, especially in today's hip hop. Dr.Dre himself would have to word TRIPLE overtime to produce another CLASSIC like this. Overall, one of the STRONGEST recommendations EVER.
