Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

All the barking and growling in the world could not detract from the fact that DMX is a troubled, tormented soul. On And Then There Was X, the multiplatinum-selling Dark Man X uses his signature fragmented flow with its singsongy vocal inflections to preach, teach, and reveal. Melodramatic storytelling has always been his shtick, whether it's tales of robbing liquor stores, plotting violent murders, or teaching shorties the code of the streets. X's inner conflicts are laid out on "Angel," a dialogue between himself and his Lord, and his ability to acknowledge different perspectives of a situation (i.e., repercussions) on several songs add depth to his character. The anthemlike "What's My Name," with its affirmations "I have no friends" and "I'm not a nice person," proves that money, fame, and popularity do not translate into happiness for DMX. --Celine Wong

Biography

Menacing, muscular and magnetic, DMX has been hard-core rap's unrivaled top dog. After the deaths of icons 2Pac and Biggie, when rap was threatening to go soft--DMX's uncompromising intensity and street cred kept hard core hard. With the expected 2010 release of two new albums, The Best Of DMX (Island Def Jam/UMe), released January 26, 2010, collects 19 of his best tracks from 1998 ... Read more in Amazon's DMX Store

Customer Reviews

A definite must have album for all rap fans.
G$
I think everyone likes this cd so much is because they don't know good rap.
Tha Overtaker AKA Sarah
All the songs have good beats and DMX's rhymes are off the hook.

THEY SAY YOU SAVE THE BEST FOR LAST....WELL THE TIME HAS COME, AND THE BEST IS HERE. DMX'S THIRD, AND BEST ALBUM "..AND THEN THERE WAS X" IS BY FAR THE BEST RAP CD OF 1999. X BRINGS IT ON EVERY SINGLE TRACK. HIS FLOW IS POWERFUL WHETHER HE'S RHYMING FAST, OR SLOW. HIS VOICE IS SO CRYSTAL THAT YOU CAN UNDERSTAND EVERY WORD. THE BEATS ARE SUPERB(ESPECIALLY CHECK OUT THE HAUNTING PIANO RIFTS ON "HERE WE GO AGAIN") PRAYER 3 KEEPS IT REAL AND IS MOVING, AND WHEN BACKED BY THE TRACK "ANGEL" THE COMBO IS UNREAL...PEOPLE HAVE CALLED HIM THE SECOND COMMING....WELL FORGET THAT HE IS HERE. THIS CD IS A MUST FOR TRUE HIP-HOP HEADS!GET YOURS....I GOT MINE! TO MY BROTHER CHRIS IN N.C. THIS IS THE REAL-DEAL,ONE LOVE! TO TODDY I LOVE YOU FOREVER& A DAY. I MISS YOU!

Unlike many DMX fans, I started with this album. Why? Well, it was because I was never big on music before this album.

Before this album, my main source of music was the radio, and I listened mainly to 80's rock. NONE of my family members listened to modern music either, they all listened to oldies music too. However, one day, my sister's boyfriend asked me to come into his car to check out his new CD player. Well, the CD he decided to play was this album.

When "What These *****"** Really Want From A *****" popped up blaring extremely loud and uncensored, I was changed. I sat with my jaw dropped and I loved the track. I turned to other tracks and loved them all too, especially Party Up. With this album, I wondered what was out there, and I turned to MTV for the first time. I was introduced to a bevy of new music, including DMX's older albums (this was his new album at the time, so no Great Depression or anything like that).

So that is why I love DMX so much. He introduced me to rap and modern music. My story is testimony that this album is EXCELLENT! Tracks like the ones mentioned above and the rest are unbelievable! Unlike many rappers today, DMX stays consistent. In other words, he doesn't go from rap to R&B suddenly.

The best thing about this album is that it's so dark and it stays dark using a series of implicative lyrics. Rappers today tend to just outright say stupid things, DMX lets you guess for yourself, and that makes this album good. It's dark, creepy, and probably not something you want to introduce to a child because it will scare the hell out of him.

His skits can be annoying, but they're a defining attribute of his albums, so you can't blame him.

I have followed DMX's music all along the way. I have all three cd's! I honestly love listening to him to and from work in traffic. It gives me the rush I need to make it through! He also gets me in the mood when going out. After having seen his performance in his movie, it just made me even more attracted to the man behind the music. Trust me, I'm not a child, I'm a 24 year old woman and I still have a passion for rap/hip hop. DMX is truly a great artist and has tremedous staying power.

DMX new album is bangin "What's my name" is beating up trunk's every where. There's tracks like "One more road to cross" ,and "The Professional" are more of the dogs stories of his life. This album is worth getting.

I was highly anticipating this release from X, and he did not disappoint! This is another hot album and proves that DMX is one of the most talented and inspired lyrical poets of hip hop today. How many other artists break out and release 3 albums in 2 years? He's got a gift that other artists could only wish for. If you've heard and liked DMX's other albums you won't be disappointed by this one. All the songs are tight. The bonus track "Good Girls, Bad Guys" at the end is HOT! Just when you think the album is over that song comes on and proves to be one of the best on the whole CD. I highly recommend this album!

I am sick of hearing that this CD is not as good as 'It's Dark & Hell is Hot' that is a classic and most people never top their classics. Jordan won six rings but nothing topped the one when he came out of retirement and won it the next year. And please stop comparing him to style biters who got their new found style from X. Bottom line this album and the last one is better than most albums that's out now. What everyone is missing but doesn't realize that Grease and PK did most of the production on the first album and then Swiss took over. While Swisss is hot he doesn't supple the X like tracks like the first album. X is not like any other MC feel what he is saying and you'll know whether he is contradicting himself. This album is more fan friendly what's wrong with that. At least he doesn't turn pop or to old show tunes to sell records. If you ever get a chance to hear vintage X on old mixed tapes you'll see the contradiction that lies within his soul. He is an entertainer and at the same time he is expressing his pain learn which song is which before you criticize this album. Every album has had a signiture that hits everyone this album it's 'What's my Name' the way he rides the track makes his lyrics that more potent. If anyone thinks that they can battle him try, he hasn't lost one yet. Pick the CD up or not this is album is worth adding to your collection. ONE - JQ.
