its cool,nothing new

for me the real Quik era was 91-98, he really hit his prime and peak between safe+sound and rhythmlism. after that he has been hit and miss. this album showcases what he does best and that is produce. he truly needs to get the right R&B voice to sing over his trademark grooves so he can bridge that Rick James,Roger Troutman meets Quincy Jones thing he wants to do. the humor is still there and for me him and Suga Free are always entertaining and i dig the Quik grooves, however the album is to long and Quik's biggest knock is that for what he gets on grooves and out as a producer he just doesn't make what i'd call money memorable songs.
from the production and word play with humor and interesting pop culture references he keeps you interested,however past 10 tracks not so much.
he is underrated as a hip-hop producer, however as a artist just right because he never fully got those worlds seperated. he is talented,however he never puts the finishing touches all the way through.
