I loved this album when I first bought it and still give it a spin from time to time.

If this album had no lyrics it would be one of the best albums EVER in any genre.

DJ Quik, along with Daz Dillinger & Warren G, is one of the most underated producers on the West Coast. All you ever seem to hear is Dr. Dre this, Dr. Dre that. Dr. Dre is a good producer but he doesn't even come close to DJ Quik. Quik produces music not just regular hip hop beats. The instruments he uses creates a nicer cleaner feel to the music rather than Dre's board. It simply sounds better and more natural; not just simple beats that any one with a pencil, a desk, and a beatboxer can make. Quik adds many layers to his beat. This creates free flowing instrumental grooves. Add to that a touch of the G Funk style and you have a sound that is so refreshing and satisfying. Suge Knight executive produces this album and he always seems to bring out the best in artists because this is for sure Quik's greatest achievement.
Each song is well crafted and you really can sit and enjoy every single song. If this album had no lyrics it would be one of the best albums EVER in any genre. DJ Quik fills the album with his sex stories, hustling, and G-Rhyming and his breathless flow is smooth as hot butter. Beatmakers should STUDY this album. It's that good. Head nodder after head nodder; Quik is the man.
Safe & Sound is just as flawless as DOGGYSTYLE; and that is saying a lot. He gets at his enemy MC Eiht on Dollarz & Sense, which is one of the best diss records EVER made. He gets all up in Eiht's grill on this song. And the line "E-I-H-T? Now should I continue? / You left out the G cus the G aint in You!" is one of the most cleverest disses I have EVER heard. That line ended MC EIHT's career and the rest of the song just jumped on the grave. Every song is the jizoint; from Diggin U Out to Something 4 Tha Mood, to Summer Breeze, Quiks Groove etc etc. There are zero weak songs.

Man oh man, how I lived in ignorance. I got suckered in, plain and simple. Like many other casual rap fans, I was tricked into believing that Dr. Dre was the best west coast producer. Luckily, I started to see the light after hearing a lot of Daz's songs. And then Quik came into the picture with his funky, confident "Safe + Sound" single. This song is amazing. I've blazed this at least 200 times, and each time is as good as the last. It has infinite replay value. So multi-layered. Each time you hear it, you notice another quirk. His lyrics actually have coherence, and tell a funny story, beginning to end. After a while I decided to check out the rest of his album, and found in it two other classics. "Somethin 4 the Mood" is nearly as astounding. The thing about Quik is that his lyrics fit perfectly to the beat. Most of Quik's beats are original, and you can tell because he shows off his musical sound with as much enthusiasm as he does his rapping ability. In the last 2 minutes of Somethin 4 the Mood, Quik stops rapping, and hits us with a brilliant musical solo, filled with light pipes. This is the best part of the song. There's nothing in rap that sounds quite like this. The next classic is "Tha Ho In You," a pimp anthem. It's vulgar, even for rap, but is also extremely melodic. With his high-pitched voice, not "hard" at all, and Motown feel, Quik challenges the listener to reconcile his potentially offensive lyrics with his ingenious rhythm. You just have to bob your head, even as you're calling the FCC.

The rest of the album is solid as well. A near classic is "Keep tha P in It," where the parliament influence is very obvious. At the end of the song, he asserts that "we represent that p funk." And he sure did, both in this album and in his others throughout the 1990s.

Damn, this album is so hot, I can listen to this one 24 hours a day. I was a big Death Row fan ( not anymore since everybody left ) and this album sounds like a Death Row disc. Every song is phat, but my favourite tracks are "Somethin' 4 Tha Mood", "Get at Me" and "Dollaz + Sense". But again, every track sounds very good. Even the shout outs blew my mind, cuz he thanks all the Death Row inmates. The only thing that is missing, is that nobody of the Death Row crew features, but second II none, Playa Hamm, and HI-C flow very nice too. So if you like some nice West Coast funk, than buy this one.

DJ Quik is probably the most underrated talented producer in hip hop. For fifteen years, he's quietly been making some of the best beats and dropping great verses to not enough fanfare. He helped put west coast rap on the map and also ushered in g-funk to the mainstream. "Safe + Sound" is his third album, from 1995, and along with "Quik is the Name", I think it's his best, a little better than 1998's "Rhythmalism". "Safe + Sound" marks two big changes for Quik. His beats move away from the fast, bass heavy loops of his first two albums and more inclined to the low, slow and bouncing g-funk beats that would later define his sound. His lyrics also show progression, instead of the young rags-to-riches Blood from Compton we see a more mature, cocky, and even angry pimp. "Safe + Sound" was Quik's most ambitious album to that point and possibly the pinnacle of his long and successful career.

The album begins with a powerful intro over a good beat, where Quik talks of what he feels is wrong in 95 rap and his career to that point. "Get at Me" is a faster, bass carried beat similar to "Tonite" or "Sweet Black P**sy" with nice horn throws. "Diggin' U Out" contains a slowed down bass and keyboard loop with a scratch from his debut. "Safe + Sound" is a funky, guitar and keyboard beat where Quik chronicles his earlier days and talks of his philosophy. "Somethin' 4 Tha Mood" is a laid back classic with a good hook, and the best part is the instrumentals. You can hear a flute, synth, and the pipes in the last two minutes are excellent. "Can I Eat It" has a good beat with his signature synthed voices, and he raps all about a certain sexual practice he despises. "Itz Your Fantasy" is a very chilled out tune for the ladies. "Tha Ho in You" has a great guitar beat, and you can guess the subject matter.
