Yeah I enjoyed Helter Skelter as well. The lyrical content was there and the beats were knockin. The whole voice thing yeah it may turn most off to his music, but like Dre-Day said earlier, I thought on alot of tracks that Erotic D especially did a good job of matching his vocals well with the beats. If I was put on the spot and had to rank it, I would give it a 4 out of 5.

yeah, it's just a shame that the D.O.C. did some attempts to adapt the old flow  ;)

thanks for doing a little review  ;)

No problem. I just hate that alot of people never gave that album a chance due to the fact that his voice changed. That still does not mean that the man does not have alot to say and did he ever on Helter Skelter. My boy was a hardcore D.O.C. fan and would not even pop HS in the deck to check it out because of his voice. I remember Dr. Dre saying in a interview he advised DOC not to drop the album because it will go double aluminum because of his voice. Slept on album.

totally agree with you.

and i can see why dre was criticising helter skelter, but i find it interesting how the D.O.C. is discrediting that album ( even though i know it's not a classic)
just check this:

Quote
ThaFormula.com - After the first Chronic dropped, did you see things starting to come to an end or not?

D.O.C. - Oh sure I did.  See the shit that they were doing was unnecessary and sooner or later that shit is gonna catch up.  The drug shit had started to get kind of old.  In '94, I asked Dre what's up with me rappin'. I had written a song and he said you should let me put that on this next record and it really pissed me off because nobody was really givin' a fuck about me.  I told him what about me muthafucka, I wanna rap to.  I wanted to do something, but they had regulated me to comic relief.  I'm a damn fool anyway.  I'm a natural comedian so that's what I had been regulated to.  I was the comic relief on the album. 

ThaFormula.com - So Dre said no about you rappin then?

D.O.C. - He didn't think that you could make a good record with this voice.  So that's when I left out of there.  See me and Dre is like a big brother, little brother thing and when the big brother piss his little brother off, then his little brother is gonna number one, take his shit and run with it, which I did.  "Heltah Skeltah" was really a Dr. Dre record that he was starting to plan on working on that I had actually already started writing lyrics for, and one of the songs that he was trying to takeaway from me was a song that he wanted to put on "Heltah Skeltah."  So I was like "fuck this shit," went to Atlanta and recorded the album.

ThaFormula.com - When you look back at that album now, what are your thoughts on it?

D.O.C. - I think that the album was as far as hip-hop records are concerned not a great record.  There is merit to the record because of who it is and because of the shit the dude done went through trying to get his shit done, but I didn't go buy it.  I'll put it to you like that and if I wouldn't go buy it then it ain't really happening.

ThaFormula.com - Do you think it was a mistake when you look back at it now?

D.O.C. - Hell nah, I needed money.  I had no money.

ThaFormula.com - So did the album end up doing alright?

D.O.C. - I think it ended up selling 290,000 copies.  I had some real strong D.O.C. fans out there that I hated to bug and jack them out of their 16 dollars like that.

Interesting. I thought it was well put together and lyrically it was on point.

^^^^^
all artists,well most is like that especially if the album didnt perform well.
One cat in particular,Erick Sermon never managed to do any numbers by himself,
so when he was promoting the album he was about to drop (at the time) he always said some shit about his previous efforts.  :laugh:

i see. but you probably agree with me that the D.O.C. was a bit too critical on himself, even though i think he was right about some of the flaws of helter skelter.
 :laugh:

i mean, he is not as positive about deuce, as he was before, but he's still more positive about Deuce than helter skelter, to give an example  ;)

The voice change is a bit too much for me as well simply because we are not talking about an average rapper here, the DOC was one fo the greats when it came to his voice, flow and lyricism he had the whole package as an MC not to mention Dre in his corner. With the voice change it works on some tracks but a whole album of it doesn't really engage me. I am listening to it and his lyricism is still on a high level and the production surprisingly is good as well. I would say 3-3.5/5 right now but I am giving it a few more spins

exactly. we weren't saying that everybody should love the "new" voice, but some people immediately judge, without really checking out the album.

so thanks for giving this a chance.

yeah I remember purchasing the album in '96 and until recently haven't listened to it all that much since that time, but I am gaining a new respect for it definitely

ok guys here is my breakdown

1 - Intro - dope 4/5
2 - REturn  Of The Living Dead - love this beat and DOC is flowing. my second favorite track on the album 5/5
3 - From Ruthless 2 Death Row - this is classic right here, Erotic D on point as he is most of the album and loving the storytelling on this, it might be my favorite track from this album 5/5
4 - Secret Plan - love the dark beat, good track 4/5
5-  Komurshell - funny skit, love the creative spelling on the title
6 - 4 my My Doggz - nice track, not too crazy about it but.. 3.5/5
7 - 45 automatic - now were talking, I love these type of tracks, Erotic D is killing it on the boards 5/5
8 - Sonzo OLight - back to back bangers this ablum is starting to heat up 5/5
9 - Bitchez - this track is ok like Dre-Day mentioned kind of reminded me of Bitchez ain't Shit as well 3.5/5
10 - Interlude - nice beat
11 - Hereafter - this is where DOC's voice is a downside, I agree the mixing is not good on this and not an enjoyable song ffor me 2/5
12 - Erotix Shit - back to back subpar tracks, alittle better than Hereafter because ot the underrated Breed 2.5/5
13 - Welcome to the New World - wish this was a bit longer, sinister beat, didn't know Erotic D was a mixtape DJ with those adlibs but I can't fault him he did a great job on the album 4/5
14 - Killa Instinc - just not feeling this beat here, average track 3/5
15 - Komurshell - more funny shit LOL
16 - Brand New Formula -  :-[ 1/5
17 - Outro - decent
Crazy Bitchez - not feeling this too much 2/5

well to sum it up I really haven't listened to this album since 1996 until recently, and it is an enjoyable album once I got past the DOC's voice which was not a probelm for me only on a couple of tracks. The flow and lyrics are there and Erotic D did a very underrated job on the boards. Album started out on fire but lost a lot of steam towards the second half for me. Overall I probably would give this around a 3.5/5 maybe even a 3.75/5 depending on my mood. But its cool to go back in time and listen to an album that you really never appreciated before and give it a second chance, props to both Chad and Dre-Day for this experience

again, thank you for giving this album another chance  ;) nice review.

aside from a few minor differences in taste, we agree with eachother about the album  :)

well i understand that your first impression was far from positive, but it's really a shame you haven't took the chance to relisten to it until now  ;)
perhaps an idea for other albums that disappointed you before in the beginning  ;) recheck them  :laugh:

Yeah,I was shocked to see that you gave the track 5/5..... the beat is average so I gave it;
-Return Of The Living Dead
Lyrics; 10
Beat; 6
Dont fit the voice and lyrics like the Remix,which leads me to believe that this is actually the ”real remix”,
the remix how ever is DOPE as fuck.

= 3/5..... the "remix" however is  :o :o :o :o 5/5  :o :o :o :o :o :o

Thanx,the beat is a little too much  :-X.... and Timbaland is  :-X on the MIC
The "singing" in the background is dope...... not sure what to think of this.
Anyways props for the hook up Trentman  ;)

 :laugh:

i ain't a timbaland fan either  :D

i didn't expect him to work with Six 2 anyway

6-2 on myspace;

6Two has since risen from the ashes of victimization and been called upon by the legendary Timbaland.
Timbaland, along with Alabama Rapper Attitude, and 6two aka deuce have finished what seems to be a rap masterpiece.
The album is set to be released very soon and will catapult Sixty 2 back into raps lime light.

After hearing this track I highly doubt it will be a masterpiece  :-\ :-\ :P :P :P :P

 :o i know that Timbaland is a diverse producer, but i don't expect any good from this either  :-\

besides, how is six 2 going to release the album, though Timbalands label ( distributed by Interscope  :-X )?

Sure he produced a few banger like "Set it off" from The Last Meal and the one on the first Game album.....
He even produced one on 6-2s last solo album...... but thats 3 tracks out of how many?  :P :-\ :-X
Get that corny pop ass out off here  >:( >:(

it might be good for his career, to get some more exposure, but not for the music  ;D

how is six 2 going to release the album, though Timbalands label ( distributed by Interscope  :-X )?

With Timbeland making Ring tone beats like this it should be NO problem  :laugh: :laugh:
I can barely hear 6-2s voice on all that mess  :P :P :P :P :-X :-X :-X :-\ :-\ :-\ :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
Then who care about the rapper when it bangs in the club and makes a good ring tone?  :laugh: :laugh:

but really, how is it going to work?

Six-2 is not like the mainstream south artists at all, so Interscope will be having a hard time to market him.

so like you said, it could be a very watered down project, or no released album through interscope at all   ;)

Interscope wont release a 6-2 album in 6-2s style... forget about it.
It seems like its a group project with Additude and Timberland,some Fixxxers shit.
Look no further than the track they have "leaked"..... perfect for Interscope.


 :yikes:  :baseballbat:

oh well, when detox and voice threw hot vessels are out of the way, six 2 may still benefit it from it if he drops another album after that group project

D~Nice

ok guys here is my breakdown

1 - Intro - dope 4/5
2 - REturn  Of The Living Dead - love this beat and DOC is flowing. my second favorite track on the album 5/5
3 - From Ruthless 2 Death Row - this is classic right here, Erotic D on point as he is most of the album and loving the storytelling on this, it might be my favorite track from this album 5/5
4 - Secret Plan - love the dark beat, good track 4/5
5-  Komurshell - funny skit, love the creative spelling on the title
6 - 4 my My Doggz - nice track, not too crazy about it but.. 3.5/5
7 - 45 automatic - now were talking, I love these type of tracks, Erotic D is killing it on the boards 5/5
8 - Sonzo OLight - back to back bangers this ablum is starting to heat up 5/5
9 - Bitchez - this track is ok like Dre-Day mentioned kind of reminded me of Bitchez ain't Shit as well 3.5/5
10 - Interlude - nice beat
11 - Hereafter - this is where DOC's voice is a downside, I agree the mixing is not good on this and not an enjoyable song ffor me 2/5
12 - Erotix Shit - back to back subpar tracks, alittle better than Hereafter because ot the underrated Breed 2.5/5
13 - Welcome to the New World - wish this was a bit longer, sinister beat, didn't know Erotic D was a mixtape DJ with those adlibs but I can't fault him he did a great job on the album 4/5
14 - Killa Instinc - just not feeling this beat here, average track 3/5
15 - Komurshell - more funny shit LOL
16 - Brand New Formula -  :-[ 1/5
17 - Outro - decent
Crazy Bitchez - not feeling this too much 2/5

well to sum it up I really haven't listened to this album since 1996 until recently, and it is an enjoyable album once I got past the DOC's voice which was not a probelm for me only on a couple of tracks. The flow and lyrics are there and Erotic D did a very underrated job on the boards. Album started out on fire but lost a lot of steam towards the second half for me. Overall I probably would give this around a 3.5/5 maybe even a 3.75/5 depending on my mood. But its cool to go back in time and listen to an album that you really never appreciated before and give it a second chance, props to both Chad and Dre-Day for this experience



Nice review
