5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest album of the 1990's.
This album is the magnum opus of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. To this date, the album reached Diamond status, and it's obvious why.
Unlike other albums, this album contains some of the most mystic and spiritual beats you could imagine. It is entirely produced by DJ U-Neek, and he even won a Grammy Award for one of the songs he made on the album [Tha Crossroads]...

This could be the best gangsta rap album in the post NWA days. THis album is probably the most violent albums to ever sell over ten million records. Although this album is violent and at times excessively violent, there is a sence of honesty that comes with it. Krayzie, layzie, Bizzy, Wish and Flesh take you to the very blocks they came from in urban Cleveland and reveal...

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony also display a tremendous amount of talent, what with their amazing flow, lyrics and rapid rhyming. It may be a little hard to understand them, but then again, why do we have the Internet in our household?
All in all, this album is a must-have, if you don't already own it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing album!,
This review is from: E. 1999 Eternal (Audio CD)This is probably Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's single best effort, and also one of their earliest. With tracks such as "1st of tha Month" and the Grammy Award winning "Crossroads" that held North America in rapture for months, Bone Thugs introduced a completely new style to the game. Krayzie, Layzie, Bizzy, Wish, and Flesh-n-Bone deliver tongue twisting, hard-hitting lyrics over gripping melodies on classics like "Mo Murda","Shotz to tha Double Glock" and "East 1999", and soulful slow jams dedicated to their common love on "Buddha Lovaz" and "Budsmokers Only". This album has spent more time in CD player than any other ever, going on 10 years now. A must have for any hip-hop fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not only Bones best,,,,
5.0 out of 5 stars Not only Bones best,,,,
5.0 out of 5 stars Bone's SECOND best CD,
THUG LUV, LOOK INTO MY EYES remix, EAST 1999, DA INTRO(east/1999 Eturnal album), MO MURDA, DOWN 71(THA GETAWAY), BONE BONE, BODY ROTT, THUGGISH RUGGISH BONE and FOE THA LOVE OF MONEY
Bone thugs are the most original rap group I've heard and if you hear anyone rap like Bone, they got the idea from them. These 5 thugs, BIZZY, KRAIZY, LAYZIE, WISH and FLESH are the definition of style. They change thier rap style so you don't get bored of them. Bizzy Bone is the best example of this, he can rap fast or slow and as the piano goes of in Mo murda, he raps at a different pace. As they rap fast, it takes time to make out what they're saying, just listen to a track 30 times then your fine. This is the top 3 rap albums of all time on the top 10 rap commandments site and it's under The Chronic by Dre Dre and Doggy style by Snoop dog.
I'll rate each track with 5 being the highest.
DA INTRODUCTION -5- Great way to start and it's my top 10 Bone songs of all time and this has the 3 best Bone members Bizzy, Kraizy and Layzie. DJUNEEK spits some evil words out to introduce Bone. Afterwards Bizzy does the best verse and no other rapper can ever touch his verse, it's so smooth and he raps slower than usual and his smooth voice fits in with the rainining and smooth music in the background. Check out these lyrics
EAST 1999 -5- Another 1 of my top 10 Bone songs. If you want to get the best out of Bone, listen to this. Its got all 5 of those thugs and this is straight hardcore. I reckon this has Kraizy's best verse because he uses all his stop n stutter rap skills here. The tune to this a deep bass in the background. Bizzy spits out the tightest verse in the whole track.
ETURNAL -5- This is a standout track on the album and it's missing Flesh. This is a little less hardcore than East 1999 because it has a slower pace. I think Layzie gave us the best verse.
CREPT AND WE CAME 3.5 I gave this 3.5 because it's my least listened on this album. This has a basic background tune but when Bone raps over it, it's still quite tight.
DOWN 71 (THA GETAWAY) -5- This song is as hardcore as East 1999 but with better lyrics. This has Bizzy, Layzie, Krayzie. This is about Bizzy getting sentenced to jail and Layzie helps by shooting a guard in the face and frowing a grenade, then Krayzie is disguised as a preacher and gives cover when Layzie and Bizzy jump over a fence to their hideout. This song has a fast pace and Layzie has my favourite verse.
MR BILL COLLECTER -5- This is 1 of the best on this album and this is Bone at a slower pace than East 1999 and Tha Getaway. You can chill to this and this has a great hook "I could of taken his life but tha n*gg* tried to get away with me elloh". This has the strongest tune out of the first 5 tracks.
BUDSMOKERS ONLY -3- This is my least listened and this is a comedy track about smokers.
CROSSROADS -5- This is dedicated to Eazy E(as is the whole album) from passing away. This is emotional and Wish's verse shines here the most to me, this song is 1 of Bone's most accomplished.
LAND OF THA HEARTLESS -5- Another hard Bone song and this is fast paced with a perfect beat. This contains the 3 best Bone members. Bizzy does my most liked verse in this track.
NO SHORTS OR LOSSES 4.5 This has all 5 Bone members. The choras tune is very like Tha Thuggish Ruggish Bone tune. The beat can't match L O H.
1ST OF THA MONTH -5- This has the standout tune along with Mo Murder. This is about Bone when they were younger when living in the ghetto and the Government gave them money, so they lived for a day like millionaires(kind of. Bizzy Bone had the best verse, this is 1 of the best songs by Bone in their carreer.
BUDDAH LOVAH -5- This is the best chilled out Bone track in my opinion. This has a memorable tune and each group member(except Flesh but he's on the video)has tiny verses each and rap after each over(like Tha Crossroads).
DIE DIE 4.5 This has Bizzy and Krayzie. Another piano classic. Bizzy has the best verse and he raps faster than Krayzie. This is a short song(2.51) so it doesn't get repetitive.
MO MURDA -5- This is my top 10 Bone song out of all their albums. This in my opinion has the best tune with piano synths and more. Layzie puts down one of the best verses in hip pop history, untuchouble. Bizzy also puts down a great verse and when the piano goes off it is out of this world when he raps. Wish puts down his best verse in this album. Krayzie's verse is relaxing and comes out with good lyrics like "dipped machete in rum", "Blow all these hoes up in flames".
SHOTS TO THA DOUBLE GLOCK -5-
first degree m*rderin' wig splitta, grave digga
THA CROSSROADS -5- This has all of thugs except Flesh. This is dedicted to Kraizy's cousine(Wally), Wish's uncle and Eazy E because they passed away.
TOP 5 SONGS on this album
5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Ever,
There isn't a single track that you can say, "Why did they put this on the album?" You can pop this in the stereo and listen from beginning to end without ever wanted to skip a track, it's that good. Mo Murda is my favorite track, followed by 1st of tha Month, Bill Collector, East 1999, Eternal, and Down 71-The Getaway. Budsmoker's Only and Buddah Lovaz were the first songs Bone did about their favorite narcotic, and since this album they have had a couple songs like these on every album they release. The album comes to an end with Bone introducing the world to Mo Thug Artists Poetic Hustla'z and the Graveyard Shift on the final track Shotz to tha Double Glock.
DJ U-Neek proved that he can make a full record and that he was a force to be reckoned with in the rap game. Every beat on this album is great, even No Shorts, No Losses and Land of tha Heartless which were co-produced by Bone. Bone are the best group ever, and this is their best album. You are not a true rap fan if you don't own a copy of E. 1999 Eternal.
