« on: January 11, 2004, 12:38:33 PM »
01. Intro ft. Jigga & Puffy - Good intro, Jay drops an okay verse and the beat is nice. 3.5/5
02. Don't Go - Dope chorus, dope drums, but something could still be added.. 3.5/5
03. When We - One of my lesser favourite songs but still pretty good. 3/5
04. Not Today ft. Eve - One of my favourite songs of the album, Dre laces a sick beat, the bass is real smooth and Eve drops a real dope verse. 5/5
05. Finally Made It (Interlude) - All of the interludes on the album are short songs which are a lot better than the usual skits. 3.5/5
06. Ooh - Another one of my favourites. 5/5
07. Let Me Be The 1 ft. 50 - Even with 50 Cent on it, it's a classic song. The beat is great and the chorus reminds me a lot of something I can't think of. ??? 5/5
08. Love @ 1st Sight ft. Meth - Very heavy sampling. :-\ Oh well, atleast it's great for a party and Mary J. Blige sings real good on this. 4.5/5
09. Willing And Waiting - Smooth as hell. The sample on the beginning made me think it was going to be boring but I love it. Reminds me of the old R&B songs. 4.5/5
10. Free (Interlude) - Not bad of an interlude. Atleast it doesn't interrupt the album. 3.5/5
11. Friends - Pretty dope song, very heavy beat. 5/5
12. Press On - Not my favourite song. Beat's too boring. 3/5
13. Feel Like Making Love - Now this is that shit right heeeere, my favourite song of the album. CLASSIC. 6/5
14. It's A Wrap - Intro had me like ??? Because it was a rap beat. But after the guitarre kicked in it sounded like a classic R&B track. 5/5
15. Message In Our Music - Samples that old track I can't find the name of. Pretty nice. 3.5/5
16. All My Love - Sounds like another R&B classic from the beginning. I love the chorus and the laid back beat. 4.5/5
17. Slow R&B song. Reminds me of the older R&B around '93 till '96 (My favourite period in R&B) 5/5
18. Ultimate Relationship (AM) - Acoustic. Very dope, maybe my favourite next to Feel Like Making Love.

Overall rating: 5/5 to me, maybe 4.5/5 to most
I wasn't disappointed this album at all, I like every track, and the best off the album are some of my favourite R&B albums. Classic.
