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

5.0 out of 5 stars Grand Champ! July 11 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The best DMX album I've heard so far although I haven't got his first 2. Every track is solid and delivers a "hardcore rap" style. DMX is my second favorite rapper. He's great! Only problem is-BE WARNED!-although DMX does seem to love God, this album has a "Great Depress"ive tone to it and has some heavy subjects. Not for the uplifted-spirited-happy-type people.This is for us who no what real-life is and what hardtimes are. Overall-10 *'s, a perfect DMX album!

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars.... Good but not his Best April 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great DMX album Feb. 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album by the most harsh and punishing rapper. His style is unique and original. I was slightly disappointed with this album although it was still great. It was your normal DMX material which is different from everything else but very similair to his previous albums. My favorite track on this album is "Who We Be"
I would recommend album to any X fan

3.0 out of 5 stars Not feelin' it Feb. 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars DMX slaughters Ja Rule Jan. 31 2004
Format:Audio CD
DMX is sick on this album, the guest apperances are great. It's X style to scream out his verses but he still got lots and lots of flow, his style is Gangsta straight up and he was, is and will be one of the finest products of Double R, Ruff Ryders. Ja Rule tries to be like DMX but his style is no where near X. DMX also stayed humble on this CD. In stead of the massive slaughtering, he talks with GOD, yes, DMX is becomming humble but he still has the gangsta mentality in him everyonce in a while in this CD. Delivery and Production is Great.

1.0 out of 5 stars Chinese Water Torture On A 5-Inch Disc Dec 16 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.
