Exactyly man! Play it from start to finish, don't skip anything and pay attention. Turn it up and enjoy. If you just pick and choose, and not really fuck with it, you aint gonna like it. You gotta listen to Bishop properly in order to get the full effect outta him. Anyways, amazing fuckin tape that i've been waitin for. Thanks DubCNN!

I listened to the whole thing today. I'm not so sure I'm listening to the same mixtape as the rest in here. Bishop Lamont has become a boring rapper. Standout tracks: "Can't Figure It Out", "Africa" and "Gorilla Pimpin". Maybe it'll be better on the 2nd listen.

This shit is great.

I'm a big fan of Bishop and usually I have to spin every song of him at least a few times to let it grow on me, but this streetalbum is awesome. All the songs are more than dope to me.

I'll be listening to this alot the upcoming time.

Thanks Dubcnn & Bishop!

Nice mixtape. Bishop is raising the bar with these projects. Shit, I still bump N*gger Noize. Production is dope on this one as well, he has a good ear for beats.

after one listen, this shit is fuckin dope

LOL at the intro :D

Africa is a bangin ass track..this beat is unreal..gorilla pimpin 5008 is exactly that, some dope on futuristic shit..send a n home is UNREAL, i swear khalil is a beast on these boards, wow..city lights may be my fav track on da whole tape, unreal..once again khalil, wow

ghetto song is da first i wasnt really feelin..maybe it'll grow on me..what people do was another weak cut imo..one night is cool, def some album material..right is bangnin, storch did his thing..be cool is one of da most lyrical tracks i've heard in a while, wish bishop spit on it though

better than you is alright, nothing special at all..kissin tha curb is UNREAL, hope 'reformation' has a collabo with busta, this is cd material..the name is a weak cut, first rapper is weird as fuck..everyday is dope, i love when bishop gets deep like that (no homo)..

cant figure it out is yet another khalil laced classic ass joint..donkey kong savage is nice, danja does different type of beats for bishop it seems..why u wanna piss me off is kinda weak, man nottz sucked on this album..all on my dick is alright, pretty good

the greatest trick is hot..not good enough for a "dre beat" still a good track, so i could care less

overall another bangin ass tape from bishop ofcourse, 4 weak cuts, that aint bad at all - bumpin this one all day long fa sho!

 I got to give it up to the westcoast the last year or 2 on the mixtapes/street album tip. Alot of the artists have put out banging material and Bishop IMO is in the forefront for that.

I thought the majority of is dope. theres a few weak beats here n there though, but Bishop came correct with flow/rhymes imo.

No matter who produced it, The Greatest Trick is a dope beat, just needs to me mixed properly and it would be bangin'.

nice little review chad  ;)

i think it's good that you didn't calculate the average of all the track ratings put together, but used different method for the overall rating.

will do my little review later.


I just hope he is saving his best for the Reformation.

nah he ran out of material, so you're gonna get a rushed product  :D



the greatest trick is hot..not good enough for a "dre beat" still a good track, so i could care less

so dre "beats" have different criteria?  :laugh:

I can't fuckin'understand what y'all ain't likin' about Ghetto Song.I love that shit.Nottz and his finest with a beat that sounds simple, but it actually isn't at all

City Lights is dope, Donkey Kong, Gorrilla Pimpin' is a heater and The Greatest Trick surprised the hell out of me.It's the best beat I;ve heard from Dre in quite a while (acually since Big Bang only Image has been dope to me, not that the others are bad, I just didn;t like them).I really like the orchestra voices in the backgrond, and you get how ill the instrumental is in the last 10-20 seonds of the track.I bet it would've sounded veven better with some proper mixing.I give credit for the beat to mr. Porter too

My little review of The Confessional
« Reply #96 on: June 12, 2008, 10:39:10 AM »
my review:

1 -

2 Africa – i like the unique vibe ; Bishop's flow is great on this (I like the echo too)  :)
It's just that the beat is a bit repetitive to me  :-\ I wish that the producer had added a few minor elements  :P

6.5/10

3 Gorilla Pimpin' 5008 -  updated: the song has grown on me  :) i'm glad that Bishop's flow doesn't sound lazy, unlike on the OG version (by the way, lol at the dog metaphor  :laugh:;)
and Stat Quo did a good job too, as this is one of his few performances that doesn't annoy me  ;)
but Busta's performance was the best of all  ;) nice wordplay too  ;)


7/10

4 Send A Nigga Home - damn  :o  this song has a catchy sound :) 8) not to mention that it has a dope hook  :)

8/10

5 City Lights -  I like the rock-ish sound; it's really a shame that Bishop's flow sounds a bit lazy on this  >:(

7/10

6 Ghetto Song -  nice smooth song  :)

7/10

7 What people do - dope melody; though the frequent use of the voice same voice sample ruined it a bit for me  :P

6.5/10


8 One Night - this song is not for me, it's too smooth/ R&B-ish.  :-X

5/10


9 Right -  pretty much the same goes for this one; besides, the beat is repetitive  :-\

4.5/10

10 Be Cool -  I like the raw sound  8); it's good to hear X on this, his verse is nice :), just like Rass’.
the beat is a little bit repetitive though  :P

7/10

11 Better than you - I really like this song, really melodic  8) also I love the drum sound  :) ; I think this is Focus’ best production so far ;)
by the way, lol at the huge amount of sarcasm in this song  :P :laugh:

8/10

12 Kissin tha curb -  the track is alright  ;) looks like Busta Rhymes is back into ADHD mode  :laugh:
Bishop Lamont sounds lazy at times though  :-\

7/10

13 The Name - this song is decent at best for now; it might grow on me later  :P

6/10

14 Everyday -  updated: well i'm not feeling this one anymore; it's too smooth  :-\
dope hook and wordplay in general though.

5/10

15 Can't figure it out -  the production fits the lyrics perfectly; though the tweaked voice samples are annoying IMO :-X, perhaps it would have been better for the vibe of the song, to have a non-sampled hook  ;)
Anyway I don't like the vibe at all; don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful song, I just can't stand its sadness type of vibe  :loopaper:

3/10

16 Donky Kong Savage - like this song  :) the beat has a dope melody  ;)
Bishop's flow is dope, just like the hook  ;)

7.5/10

17 Why U Wanna Piss Me Off - updated: the beat has become acceptable to me  ;)
the hook doesn't really bother me anymore either; lol at bishop playing the clown in his lyrics by the way  ;)

6.5/10

18 All on my Dick - the beat is repetitive, so I skipped the song after a while  :whistle:  :laugh: bishop sounds lazy as hell by the way  :-\

5/10

19 The Greatest Trick -  I love the beat, it has such a dope vibe, i like the different elements ( notice the vocals in the background), especially during the chorus; Mr.Porter & GOD definitely did a good job!
Makes me wonder what you guys have in stall for Detox  8) :raisetheroof:
and fuck all that bullshit about Dre supposedly falling off  :psych:

anyway, Bishop's flow is good on this; I like the hook too  :)


8.5/10


20 2 much godfather - updated: i'm getting tired of these smooth/R&B-ish songs   :-X

4/10

21 It hurts - This track really has that aftermath vibe (I'm not talking about the label).
i love the elements played during the chorus.
also, it's dope how bishop switches up his flow  :)


8/10



22 Oh My God - hehehe, this club song is clearly not for me  :laugh:  ;)
It's not as bad as Candy shop & how we do it over here though.

5/10







Verdict

this street album is quite consistent(i think it's better than a couple of regular aftermath/shady/g-unit 'regular' albums); i think it's put together a lot better than the previous ones ( mainly the pope mobile  :P). Dre did not executive produce this, but he might have helped picking the producers.

it's good to see that bishop's flow has really progressed; he ain't there yet, but the frequency of the "lazy" sounding flow popping up, is a lot lower than on Bishop's older street albums.

since The Confessional is supposed to be the closest representation of the Reformation yet, i think it's safe to say that it will only get better with The Reformation, as the best material has yet to drop ( not to mention that GOD is all over that album  ;D:) 8)



overall rating: 7/10

^^ not a bad review...

Africa and Donkey kong have the best instrumentals imo and bishops flow on donkey kong is easily the best imo...if he could spit like that abit more alot of ppl outside dre dickriders would feel him imo and on africa he showed he can work with a beat and be innovative with a beat...something that needs to be done in order to make hits and he should work on doi more creeative shit like that more often...africa actually sounds like something dre would do back in the day when he was still makin fire for joke...

As for the last joint...the greatest trick or watever its called....the hook is nice and the beat is 'ok' at best imo....as for 'dre falling off etc...if his beats are anything like this for detox, it will be easily the worst shit he has ever dropped...but i already know without hearing the album that dres album will be nothing like the sound of this joint...just from following his career
