Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

Timbaland & Magoo continue to confound rap fans with albums that are mixed blessings. Like Indecent Proposal before it, this album flaunts the fantastic soundscapes that only Timbaland could conjure. For example, Tim enlists the talents of Indian vocalist Raje Shwari to sing over the most hypnotic flute and drum kicks imaginable on "Indian Flute." But, as usual, the problem comes when Tim pulls the dreaded producer-cum-emcee routine. Tim raps on a large chunk of the tracks--"Don’t Make Me Take It There" exists as one big fat exercise in narcissism. The otherworldly, genre-bending beats are still there, but the middling raps by less than stellar emcees like Frank Lee White and, yeah, even Magoo diminish his dazzling compositions. Maybe the fact that Tim pays so much attention to the rap of yesteryear is telling. On "Cop That Sh**" the crew revises rhymes from Special Ed, Rakim, and MC Lyte while "Straight Outta Virginia" is a takeoff on N.W.A. Throwback tunes to match the jerseys? Or does Tim believe rap's best days are behind it? Either way, no one's sure how an album can be both stimulating and lackluster at the same time, but this one is. --Dalton Higgins

It seems like the people that gave this album four and five stars are diehard fans of Timbaland who'll like just about anything he puts his hands on. Now, I'll agree that Timbaland is one heck of a producer, but he just can't deliver a great album. I didn't think things could get any worse after the piece of trash that was Indecent Proposal, but then I heard Under Construction Part II.
As usual, there is an abundance of guest stars on here. Why? Maybe because if you asked your friends, "How do you like to spend your day off?" most of them probably wouldn't say, "I'd kick back and listen to a Timbaland and Magoo album." And the usual guest rapper, Sebastian (whoever he is), has rhymes that neither help nor hurt the album.
Like I said before, Timbaland is a great producer, but you really can't tell on this album. As my favorite website said, Tim gave his best beats to Justin Timberlake and Bubba Sparxxx, leaving his own album with just okay beats. And as far as rapping goes, Tim still fails to impress for the most part. But the thing is, Magoo's rapping has actually improved a little. But I'm still not giving him a WHOLE bunch of credit because he still only fills his rhymes with talks about sex in the raunchiest way possible; it'll even make Devin the Dude want to throw up. Regardless, if Magoo is rapping better than Timbaland is, then there's something seriously wrong.
There ARE actually some tolerable songs on here, like "Indian Flute" and "Cop That Ish", the only song featuring Missy. Speaking of that song, I agree with reviewers that said there's a difference between interpolating a rap verse and just ripping it off. The first verse of this song rips off Eric B. and Rakim's "I Know You Got Soul", and later on you'll find "Throwback" ripping off LL Cool J's "Jingling Baby".

Take a brief pause and check the list of Timbaland's work in 2003: Missy Elliott's "Work It" won a Grammy, her mumbo-jumbo staccato funk of "Gossip Folks" was nominated, and her "Pass That Dutch" caught year-end critics eyes, with "This is Not a Test!" placing 9th on Spin's top 40 albums of the year. Elsewhere, Tim produced Justin Timberlake's grammy-winning "Cry Me A River," Lil' Kim's reintroduction to fame, "The Jump Off," Bubba Sparxxx's sophomore hit "Deliverance," Alicia Key's futuristic blues-funk jam, "Heartburn," and the best beat on Jay-Z's victory lap final album ("Dirt Off Your Shoulder"). And aside from being all over the radio and all over the Grammys, he made an album, "Under Construction, pt. II." Unfortunately, Tim gave away his best beats, which really makes the rap and R&B world colorful, but his solo efforts sounds almost a whole decade behind what he's capable of.
First of all, the lyrical content over Tim's beats have always fit those beats; Missy Elliott's foul-mouthed spit over the sexed-up "Work It" beat is perfect, Ludacris's high-speed talk about bling completes "Rollout," and Bubba Sparxxx's country-fried rollicking goes hand-in-hand with the futuristic country funk of "Deliverance." However, "Under Construction, pt II" is overrun with commonplace lyrics about sex and haters, two topics as common as "hello" in today's rap world. But even with these topics, Tim is usually able to produce sick, innovative beats to make all speak interesting. Missy's "Lick Shots" is a perfect example of this; an intimidating Spanish guitar rides underneath Missy's over-accented slurring. But "Don't Make Me Take It There" is an ordinary beat with ordinary lyrics. The same error occurs in all the sex tracks.

I am a huge fan of Timbaland and Magoo's body of work. I felt that Indecent Proposal was an excellent cd that was virtually ignored by the public, and that Tim recently did great work on both Under Construction I and Deliverance. With that in mind, I was eager to pick up Under Construction 2. It is hard to describe the disappointment I felt after listening to this cd. First of all, I will state the obvious: people do not buy Timbaland and Magoo music for the lyrics, they buy it for the beats. These beats were pedestrian and spare. Minimalist production has its place, but when the artist isn't a great rapper anyway, and is known for the beats, it is fair to expect better. It seems that Tim is saving his best beats for other artists. Annoying hooks ("that s#$t ain't gon' work") prevail throughout. Even the usually dependable, if not spectacular, Magoo falters in this one. It is almost as if he is matching his partner's lack of effort. This avoids one-star status due to "Indian Flute," a catchy song, if derivative of "Indian Carpet" from their last album. If you haven't bought this cd yet, get Timbaland and Magoo's earlier work instead: this one falls short both lyrically and production-wise.

Now I been readin some of these reviews and I have to disagree with most of them. I think this the best album to date that Tim & Magoo have dropped. I have been a Tim fan since day one and this album is on point. I do agree that the beats are different, but how boring would it be for Tim to stay the same over all these years. Different does not mean bad, I love all the beats on this albums. And what surprised me the most was the lyrics cause I'm feelin them totally. Now if you have been followin Tim & Magoo all these years you would know that the lyrical content of thier album was the weak point, but not on this one. I can't say enough how I'm feelin this album, I even have people who have never really be a fan out there buyin the album cause they like it. And I hope Don't make me take it there is a single off the album cause that is the realist I have ever heard Tim come off on a track, and the thing about it is everything he say's is true. Also another notable song on the album is "hold on" feat. Wyclef, I could listen to that song all day.
