Dre Puts Together A Rap Essential,
This review is from: Chronic 2001 (Audio CD)
I have never been into rap, or the idea behind it, but this album is something extraordinary. Dr. Dre has the best rap beats I've ever heard in my life, and upon listening to this album, I now have much larger appreciation for rap. The rhymes and lyrics are strong, but the most impressive and astounding part of this album has to be the flow of each song, the production work, and each and every beat. Dre finds all the best rappers to have a part in his song. Only one track on the album is only Dre, that track being The Watcher.
The most impressive achievements on this album have to be Still Dre, Forgot About Dre, What's The Difference, and Xplosive. Each of these tracks displays the true essence of what rap is really all about. Each of those tracks features unbelievable lyrical deliveries and impressive rhymes, outstanding, catchy beats, and a great pace to the song. Dre is quite possibly the most influential rap artist of all time, and it definitely shows on this album. There are a few ridiculous songs, just silly and pointless, but those songs are still very much worth listening to. Then there are the furious lyrics of Education, and the slow paced but absolutely essential track, B-tch Niggaz. Two of the best songs also would have to be the laid back, soothing beat of Let's get high, and the low key bouncing of Next Episode.
Honestly, I couldn't see how a fan of rap wouldn't love this album. It has it all. It got me interested in rap and I'm now a huge fan of Dre. Therefore, I highly recommend this album to all fans of rap, or someone interested in rap like me.
