Label : Delicious Vinyl (1995)

Production : Jay-Dee, Pharcyde, Diamond D, others.


1 Bullshit (4,5)
2 Pharcyde (5,5)
3 Groupie Therapy (5)
4 Runnin' (5)
5 She Said (5)
6 Splattitorium (5)
7 Somethin' That Means Somethin' (5)
8 All Live (4,5)
9 Drop! (5)
10 Hey You (4,75)
11 Y? (5)
12 It's All Good (5)
13 Moment In Time (5)
14 The Hustle (5)
15 Little D (4,5)
16 Devil Music (5)
17 The E.N.D. (4,5)

Overall : 5/5

I'm pretty sure people will disagree with me on this one but I was actually thinking of doing this as a classic review but since someone requested it I'll drop it now instead.

While most people will argue that "Bizarre ride..." was much more fun and creative I beg to differ. While the fun part may be true this album is so much more focused, the production is better and lyrically "Bizarre Ride" has nothing on this album (let me add that "Bizarre Ride..." is a 5/5 album to me as well).

While most people only remember this album for "Runnin" and "Drop!" (best rap video ever ?) this has so much more to offer. Check out the lyrics to "Moment In Time" which may not be as funny as "Ya Mama" but it's so much deeper. One of the biggest cliches in the music world is when a group says "they've grown up" but in this case it's so true.

Classic!

That song is dopeness. :afro:

I've been wanting to pick this up but I had the choice between Bizarre Ride Pt 2 and this, so I chose Bizarre Ride. I'll cop this when I have some more money. 8)

they re-released it the same year it came out? Sounds more like a Japan only release or something like that. I'd love to hear those tracks though. Upload?
