Some of the tracks that stood out were:
"E=MC2" (A funky little mix. Sort of reminiscent of that early 80's atomic dogg sound)
"Love" (A nice example of J's precision cutting and mixing)
"So Far To go" (Nice little Isley Brother's chop) J definitely loves the Isley Brothers. Look at "Won't Do".
There's a very old school R&B feel to this album. No doubt influenced by his final days with his mom. True fans of Dilla will also notice that in his later life he was a lot more infatuated with Love. Look at the themes of many of his final songs: Love Jones, Love, Baby, So far To Go, Jungle Love. Even on the "Donuts" album songs like: U-Luv. This is a far cry from the old days of "What love got to do wit it? Ask S V it's all B** S***". Facing life and death does that to a person. We'll miss you Jay Dee-Jay Dilla. Your gone for now but there's a hope so "Don't Cry".
In conclusion buying this album is a no brainer; it's definitely worth every penny.
