Ice Cube was yet to release a bad album when this came out. I decided to buy it since Ice Cube is one of my favorite artists, but there isn't 1 good track on this entire CD. It is truly the only album I own that I would give a 1 star rating to, and I have some other fairly bad albums. Please do not listen to this if you want to hear good Ice Cube, any other release from him will do, but not this. His lyrics have gotten to be stupid at times, but by far the worst aspect of this album is the TERRIBLE production. I am not feeling the whole rock vibe at all, I mean it's cool Cube is expanding his musical horizons, but this isn't that way to do. Thankfully Cube's nex release, Volume 2 The Peace Disk was much better.
