Title: The Game - The Doctors Advocate
Post by: Meho on November 26, 2006, 04:39:42 AM
Another quick lil review:

01. Looking At You feat. Mac Minister
The album starts of with a intro/track type. Game is basically freestyling a lil bit, talking about his return. He jacked Dre's flow on this one but its not that annoying as it is on some other tracks. That Mac Minister talking is completely unnecessary, it fucks up the tempo of the track. Overall cool intro track 3/5

02. The Shit
Craaaaaaazy banger from DJ Khalil. The production is really banging on this one, the ad libs from the chicks sound great too, Game spits his whole gangsta shit again, the only minus of this track is that he completely swagger jacks Dres flow and voice. 4/5

03. One Blood feat Junior Reid
The street single we've all heard by now. I really liked this track, once again the production is banging, great Junior Reid sample in the background. The only problem is that with all those remixes, I got tired of the track real quick. 4.5/5

04. Compton feat Will.I.Am
Everyone was skeptical about Will.I.Ams production on these new LPs but ever since I heard that Too Short joint, I knew he had it in him. The beat is really simple but effective. Game raps about Compton, his flow and delivery is great on this one. 4.5/5

05. Remedy
Just Blazeeeee. Just Blaze is killing it right now and this one isn't any different. Old school mixed with some new school sound = banger. Game raps kinda old school too, doesn't ruin this perfect beat at all. 4.5/5

06. Lets Ride
Here is where the album starts going downhill a lil bit. Typical Storch production, with Game swagger jacking Dres flow again and 50 on the chorus. I actually liked this track when it came out at first but the replay value is low. 4/5

07. Too Much feat Nate Dogg
Everybody seems to like this track but I don't understand what the deal is. Another boring Storch production, another track where Game jacks Dre's flow and even recycles one of his verses. Nate is awful on the hook. 3/5

08. Wouldn't Get Far feat Kanye West
Cool joint, trying to be commercial. 4/5

09. Scream On Em feat Swizz Beatz
I hated this track at first but it grew on me. One of the rare tracks where Game doesn't name drop like crazy. Hes spitting raw on this one.  4/5

10. One Night
Highlight of the album. Game spitting something with substance for a change over this soulful Nottz production. The whole vibe of the track is great. I'm surprised Game didn't have more tracks like this, considering all the bs he was going through in the last year. 5/5

11. Doctors Advocate feat. Busta Ryhmes & Chaunecy Black
Start From Scratch part 2. The thing is its missing something. The beat from J.R. is very simple but effective. Game got drunk again and this time described his feeling towards Dre. The whole getting drunk thing sounded more genuine on Start From Scratch. Busta comes in and rips it. 4,5/5

12. Ole English feat Dion
Thats the Game I like. Some great story telling on this one. Dion rips the chorus over this Hi-Tek beat 5/5

13. California Vacation feat Snoop Dogg & Xzibit
Oh my! Snoop rips it, Xzibit kills it and J.R. drops a monster beat. Classic ? Hold up, this one has one mistake. Games verse is horrible  :'( 4.5/5

14. Bang feat DPG
Like anything with DPG lately, this track is weak. Jelly Rolls production is actually surprisingly dope but I don't know what Daz, Kurupt and Game were thinking. 3/5

15. Around The World feat Jamie Foxx
That necessary chick track  >:(. Its not bad but just doesn't fit in with the vibe of the album (shocking ain't it). 3/5

16. Why You Hate The Game feat Nas & Marsha
Great track. Love the atmosphere on this one, something to listen to in your car when your driving home at night, zone out. 5/5


Game once again proved he has a great ear for production. The production is banging on most of the tracks. The onyl problem is that some tracks sound completley out of place but thats the deal when you have so many different producers and whats important, with different styles. Game really improved his flow and delivery. He still sounds off beat sometimes but nothing too annyoing. Lyrically its the same old Game. Too much name dropping, going off topic. He proved on 2 or 3 tracks that hes a dope story teller and I think he should make more tracks like Ole English or One Night.

Overall I'd give this a 4,5/5

wow, nice review

I agree almost 100% with everything you said, I just feel different on a few things

- Too Much is a good track
- Hi-Tek beat was reaaal tight, liked it better than Runnin

other than that you nailed it dead on, pointed out all the shit I thought about

Youre too nice with some of the ratings.'

T me tihs record is good consistent but lacks hit songs like..How we do, dreams, westsode story, higher, hate it or love it, put you on the game.

Its consistent tho i cant say anything bad about the record exept for maybe the song with Jamie foxx im not crazy about.

yeah this album is underrated, not as good as his first one though

agreed.

this is not a bad album, but i don't like the concept of it.

i mean:

(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51Danq7HBSL._AA240_.jpg)

not to mention the the productions, the different voice.
i know that Dre is Game's idol, but the whole tribute thing is amaturistic to me.

an experienced executive producer is missed here; not necessarily dre.
when game says, after he dropped his 3rd album he has released 3 classics album i have to laugh.

exactly the first one had a theme to it and I thought he and 50 made a great team together, not to mention the Dre tracks

yeah, the Game needs guidance even though he claims the opposite.

I think if Game put away all the negative things such as the beefs and really concentrate on making music he really would be that much better off. I really like his voice and delivery when he is not trying to sound like Dre.

i totally agree, i guess he somehow overlooked the track Big Ego's off of 2001  :laugh:

yeah his voice is raw, but his mind is screwed  :laugh:

about all the name dropping; i know it's his style, but maybe he can be a bit more creative with it, and create a certain structure for it for one particular song  ;)

there were some topics about dre's involvement in the upcoming album. even if these rumors are true, i don't think he'll be the executive producer for the album though.
he may just produce a few songs.

offtopic, but fuck it.

yeah I doubt he will have the time to executive produce the album anyway but a few Dre beats not out of the question, they may be Detox leftovers like the ones he gave Snoop for "No Limit Top Dogg"
