Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

Despite his membership among today's corporate rap elite, as DMX's The Great Depression proves, the overwrought production and excessive use of trite catch phrases that typify their breed can't mask the Dark Man's innate raw power. While X's reputation is intact and it's hip-hop as a genre that's floundering, the album serves as an antidote to the flood of insipid hip-hop/R&B combinations and "Oochie Wally"-isms that clog the airwaves. Standout tracks include the riot-inducing "Who We Be" and the dead-on "Shorty Was Da Bomb". Even the lesser tunes are dope. On first listen, Depression's most accessible song, "We Right Here", comes off as mindless radio fodder, but its blunt chorus quickly grows on you. The album's centerpiece, "I Miss You", is a genuinely personal composition built around a universal theme. Here, DMX's lyrics and delivery invite the same favourable comparisons to Tupac Shakur that he had received earlier in his career. --Rebecca Levine

Let me start by saying I am a huge D fan. This album however was a real let down. There are a few good songs but thats about it. It just seems like everyones style is getting so soft with tons of female appearences in songs and soft beats. It's not bad when there is a few but to many is not ok. Like I said I like DMX but this album is not for me his first and second cds are some of my favs. A few good tunes but not worth the buying the whole thing.

DMX delivers another solid album, but comes up short because of how good his previous albums were. This is a good CD and a must have for DMX fans. DMX did a good job on here but it was the production on this album that I really wasnt feelin.
There are some hot songs on here such as; School Street, Who We Be, Trina Moe, We Right Here, Bloodline Anthem, and Damien III. These all had some great beats and great lyrics. But then there were some songs with some okay beats like Shorty Was Da Bomb. X does a great job with his storytellin on this track but the beat is lackin something. I Miss You is another good song (Dmx pays tribute to his Grandma)
Track 17, A Minute For Your Son, follows the Prayer and X again talks to God, this a hot song. Afterward there are some hot freestyles from some other Bloodline artists over old X beats. These are some hot verses so dont skip these.
As a whole Dmx delivers another good album. This album gets 3.5 stars because of bad production on some songs. But X holds his own so I gotta give him credit for that.

You know, every day I'm alive, I just wish Ice Cube and Ice-T would just go over to DMX's big stupid mansion and kick his a$$. Here he is, not only making a mockery of everything the two helped to create and stood/stand for, but making millions off it thanks to stupid, trendy 15-year-old kids all across the globe. I mean come on. "Trina moe, niggaz about to BLOW!" That makes "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" sound like "Stairway To Heaven".
I remember in 10th grade when I got a ride home from my neighbor's friend, and he was blasting this in his car. What did I do to deserve that? I was nice to him, and he rewards me by putting me through this unlistenable waste.
With its mumbled, incoherent, senseless lyrics, and its annoying, uninspired "beeeetz", this album is stupid, ridiculous, block-headed, absurd, clownish, asinine, outlandish, nonsensical, cockamamie, bothersome, perturbing, and just plain idiotic. If you want rap done RIGHT (which is few and far between), buy Ice-T, Ice Cube, Public Enemy, etc. If you want a good frisbee or coaster, here you go.

I think this album is really cool and a must buy album.
For those who said that it sucks and ...... they are completely wrong. I bought the CD after reading those reviews and i dont think they should say it is the worst album.
Following are the ratings for the songs I think are appropriate:
1. Sometimes:GOOD SONG FOR THE INTRO.VERY COOL LYRICS. 8.5/10
2. School Street: I THINK BEST SONG OF THE ALBUM. 10/10
3. Who We Be: NOT A VERY GOOD SONG BUT NOT VERY BAD. REMOVING OF THIS SONG WILL EFFECT THE ALBUM (FOR WORSE) 7/10
4. Trina Moe: SAME COMMENTS AS NO.3 EXCEPT BETTER LYRICS.8/10
5. We Right Here: SECOND BEST SONG. 9.9/10
6. Bloodline Anthem:A VERY GOOD TRACK.CANT SKIP IT.10/10
7. Shorty Was da Bomb: WOW! A GREAT GREAT SONG. MAN THIS SONG IS A BOMB. COOL LYRICS. 10/10
8. Damien III: NOT BAD! 6/10
9. When I'm Nothing: NOT TOO GOOD. CAN BE COMMENTED AS WORSE SONG OF THE ALBUM. BUT STILL WORTH LISTENING. 4/10
10. I Miss You: SO SO. (50 50). 5/10
11. Number 11: WHOA! THIRD BEST SONG. 9.5/10
12. Pull Up (Skit): OKAY. 3/10
13. I'ma Bang: VERY GOOD SONG. I LISTENED IT 2 OR 3 TIMES. CANT SKIP IT. 9/10
14. Pull Out (Skit): SAME AS 12. 3/10
15. You Could Be Blind: NICE. GOOD SONG AND LYRICS. 7/10
16. Prayer IV: ALL RIGHT! NOT BAD. BUT COULD BE BETTER IF A LITTLE MORE WORK. 7/10
17. Minute for Your Son: CURRENTLY THE BEST SONG AND THIS SONG ARE THE SAME. CANT DECIDE BETWEEN THEM.
So there you go. But they are MY comments. can't say anything about you(whether you will like it or not)
but still worth trying. should but it if you a big fan of DMX.(LIKE ME!)
but one more thing, if your friend got the album and you want to burn it, don't!!!! cause it got a very good artwork!!!
later!

DMX's 4th release entitled "The Great Depression" was one of the more successful commericial hip-hop album releases of the year 2001 (a few others being Ja Rule's "Pain is Love", Jay-Z's "The Blueprint", and to a slightly lesser extent billboard-chart-wise, Ludacris's sophomore release "Word Of Mouf").
I got this album and I enjoyed it for some time. The main thing I liked about it was the lyrics. While I connot say that DMX is a complex rhymer on par with the like of Nas, Canibus, or Eminem, I can say that the actual words are very hard-hitting. Lyrically, "The Great Depression" contains the subject-matter that has become his trademark: Frequent graphic violence, intermittent religious introspection, self-asorbed regard to his physical status, his general views of success, his peers that support him, his enemies, and encounters with sexually immoral women.
Production-wise, this album is above-average. The beats such as the rock-influenced "Bloodhound Anthem" and the first single "We Right Here" are memorable, and a few others I have not mentioned are great. If you are more into the complex beat-stylings of the RZA, True Master, and DJ Premier, chances are you probably won't be terribly impressed*. No production seems overtly out-of-place, so it shouln't bother you if you favor lyrics over beats.
*Usually, you should not listen to a DMX album for beats.
Standouts: The second single "Who We Be" has a simplistic but intense delivery and subject-matter about the streets of the ghetto. The beat has very loud samples, and there are eerie voices in the backround. "We Right Here" has a complex beat, that forces X to adopt a style that works. It's quite interesting. The subject-matter is a mix of braggadacio and hard-edged reality.
