5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unidentified, excellent, music., July 11 2004
This review is from: Gorillaz (Audio CD)
Before Gorillaz I had never heard of Damon Albarn, or Blur, or anything like that. But I had heard of Del Tha Funky Homosapien who raps on Clint Eastwood and Rock The House. I also knew Dan the Automator who produced the Gorillaz Self-titled debut. I'm a pretty big rap fan but I like rock as well. So being a big Del fan I heard he was going to be involved in a brand-new, experimental rock band. It sounded cool so I awaited the album. Then I started hearing Clint Eastwood on the radio. What an excellent song. A dark sounding hip-hop beat with an incredible piano loop. I loved the sleepy vocals on the chorus and Del's rhymes were tighter than ever.
After that I had to pick up the album. I went out that day and got it. And to tell you the truth I didn't like it that much. I was expecting an album of "clint eastwood" thinking Gorillaz was a hip-hop band. But after getting over that and listening to the album more it grew on me and I fell in love with it. This is truly one of the most creative and abstract albums i've heard. I like all kinds of music and that's one of the reasons why I love this album. So many sounds come together in this album. Hip-hop, blues, jazz, rock, reggae it's all there. Even the idea behind the band and image is great. The idea of a cartoon band with each member being represented by a crazy cartoon is excellent. This also makes their videos pretty awesome.
So if you're looking for something new, and are open minded I would suggest this album. Over anything else. It's got the best from so many different kinds of music it's hard not to love it. One problem though, I need the second album!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 DJ Quik is tha Name, July 5 2004
This review is from: The Best of DJ Quik (Audio CD)
I've been listenin to rap for over 10 years now. Predominantly west coast music and DJ Quik has always been one of my favorites. With his laid back G-Funk beats and his dope rhymes on the mic, he's one of the most talented figures in hip-hop. All his albums are classic but i'm sure many people have overlooked Quik so i'd seriously recommend this album to anyone just getting into him. Its got some of the best bangin tracks from all 6 of his albums.
This cd is good because it follows him throughout his whole career and displays his different sounds ranging from the laid back hit "Tonite" to the newer, harder track "Speed". My personal favorites though are the tracks from his earlier albums. Nothing beats that early 90's G-Funk sound on songs like "Tonite" and "Safe+Sound".
So Get this cd! New Fans, Old fans it don't matter. I've been a fan since his early debut but with all the dope songs scattered among 6 cds this is a nice way to have all of them on one disc. And theres two new tracks. The dope "Streetz is Callin" and staying true to the tradition of getting a new Quiks Groove for every cd we get Groove number VII which is real nice and laid back actually one of my favorite songs.
So cop this cd and prepare to be amazed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The final Chamber is Complete!, June 1 2004
This review is from: No Said Date (Audio CD)
After 11 years since the classic "36 Chambers" dropped the Wu-Tang has seen of dozens of releases. They've got the classics of course from their early days, but the last 5 or so years has seen many horrible Wu Tang albums.
But No Said Date is by no means bad. It's one the best Wu-Tang albums in a long time. Mainly because it actually sounds like the Wu-Tang. Masta Killa really takes it back to 36 Chambers with this album.
Masta chose to stay in-house for production on this cd and it shows. The beats are crazy and every single one is of top-notch quality done by The Rza, 4th Disciple, True Master, and Allah Mathematics.
Masta also chose to stay in-house for his guest appearances, featuring all of the Wu-Tang. And I have to say that there isn't one weak guest on this album. Raekwon, Ghostface, Gza, Inspektah Deck, they all rip it up on the album. Especially Gza and Deck on the track "Silverbacks".
So if you're lookin for a good hip-hop album, or if you're a fan of the Wu-Tang. Ya gotta pick this cd up. Plus I haven't even mentioned the cool and Free dvd that comes with the album. Its got tons of cool footage and audio from Masta and the rest of the Clan. So get get this. NOW!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Ghostface aka Pretty Toney is BACK, May 31 2004
This review is from: Pretty Toney Album (Audio CD)
Everyone knows the Wu-Tang Clan. The crazy kung-fu sample using 9 member clan of lyrical assasins. All the members are different in their own right and great MC's, but Ghostface has always been one of the more charismatic and unique members. What makes him charasmatic is his sound and delivery of rhymes. It's flashy and highly energetic, which is different than his kung-fu grimey clan mates. Also, Ghost has always been one to use a different type of beats than the rest of the Clan. And those beats are different because there SOULFUL! That's right, this album, as with other Ghost releases, draws heavily from the 60-70's motown and soul sound. This works great for Ghostface.
This album is no exception of those great old school beats. With joints like "Save me Dear" and "Holla" its like you're back in the 70's. This album is mainly produced by peopele out of the Wu tang (except Run which is done by Rza) but it's still has excellent beats. Ghost rips all the tracks as usual with his near perfect flow and voice.
The only two problems I have with this album is 1) the song "Tush" with missy and 2)the guest spots. All the songs are nice but Tush is in my opinion is simply an attempt to get airplay for this album. Nothing more. And the guests, which are pretty much all non wu-tang members, is ok but it still doesn't compare to Wu albums of old where it was all in-house Wu guests.
All in All I would DEFINITELY recommend this album. It's got a great, upbeat sound to it and proves that Wu Tang still got it. So props to Ghost for releasin another excellent soulful album

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Completely solid hip-hop album., March 25 2004
This review is from: The Way I Am (Audio CD)
Not alot of people I don't think have heard of Knoc-turn'al but you will soon. His single Way I Am has been getting some airplay lately and hopefully he'll start to blow up. Knoc is seriously dope and has alotta skill on the mic. And his style is so unique, he sounds different than 95 percent of rappers out there. So he sounds fresh and you wanna keep listening to him.
The Production is top notch with people like DJ Quik and Dr. Dre handling it. The only gripe I had with this album was a few too many collabs. Not enough Knoc, and some of the guests were lackluster. But there are some great guest spots courtesy of Xzibit, Warren G, and Nate Dogg.
All in All this is a dope album and if you're into west coast hip-hop or just looking for something new pick this up!
