Good to have him back, but maybe he should have waited,
This review is from: Undisputed (Explicit) (Audio CD)
Here's a quick breakdown of the 17 tracks
.7 (previously released songs)
.1 (with previously used lyrics, but a different intrumental and hook (Cold World))
.7 (New songs)
I knew X was just trying to create hype when he said this was gonna be his best album since "It's Dark And Hell Is Hot", but I was expecting a little more. Not even much, my expectations were low, but I was still disappointed. DMX has always been in my top 5 favorites so the last thing I wanted to do was write a review like this, but I can't even pretend this is a great album.
Had half of the songs not been released on mixtapes from 2009-2011 I might have a different view of the album, but the fact that I've been listening to half of this album since 2010 makes it hard to really appreciate the music for the time being, no matter how good it is. This should have been a mixtape. Also, seeing as how he had no problem putting out old music, I don't know why he wouldn't put "Change Is Gonna Come" on here, it's one of his best songs in years.
Overall as a fan I'm glad to see X is trying to put his career back together. But it's off to a slow, disappointing start. Hopefully the next album will be better, but apparently it's just gonna be another compilation of stuff he recorded in the last 3 years according to the company who aquired his material and plans to release it. So I'm not to optimistic about that one either.....maybe the one after that.
I'm glad "Y'all Don't Really Know" got an official release
The re-hashing of half the songs
"Time To Get Paid" was cut from the final tracklisting
