Solid, meaningful album but I feel like this story has been told already,
This review is from: The Greatest Story Never Told Chapter 2: Bread and Circuses (Audio CD)
Saigon returns with the second chapter to Greatest Story Never Told, and it is significantly weaker and less interesting but still very meaningful. Saigon without Just Blaze production is just not the same and the first one will never be duplicated. The focal point is Saigon and his lyrics as he delivers a strong performance, touching on his past experiences and struggles, kind of preaching to the masses. The preaching becomes a little annoying and the female oriented tracks feel out of place. And why get so specific on the shootings you committed, we get it. The production is adequate and moves the album forward as it starts off nicely but slowly becomes less interesting as the beats are average and content becomes repetitive. It does pick up at the end though. Solid, meaningful album but I feel like this story has been told already.

I agree, man. A lack of Just Blaze beats and no Statik Selektah beats at all. And his verse on Large Pro's "M.A.R.S." trumps anything on this whole album. I'll keep playing it, though. Good review.
