guys this aint loud enough. i'm sure its a perfect source but the gain isn't correct - i loaded it up in wavelab and its about 50% what it should be before peaking :0

thats just the explicit version - the clean is a lot louder but still not quite there.

thanks a lot Eddie  ;)

Ok, everyone was expecting to have their head ripped off their shoulders with something absolutely otherworldly and insanely dope, and this isn't that

BUT this is a tight single, it's got an interesting chorus, it's all very well done, drums are dope, laid back guitar melody, I'm feeling it! It's better quality than the mixtape stuff he's put out (and that was all high quality), and I think it's thrown a lot of people just because it's a chilled out song rather than a hyped up song (which will hopefully follow this one)

They may well be going for the summer jam type of thing, same way Nuthin But A G Thang was a chilled single rather than an out and out banger


Also you gotta remember, we're all west coast hiphop heads, the song has to appeal to every mutherfucka if Bishop is to sell, and I think this could do, especially if they push it - I can picture that guitar melody getting stuck in everyone's heads the way other Dre singles have

With Game, I remember thinking Westcoast Story was kind of a throwaway In Da Club ripoff beat, and when How We Do dropped I was like, man, this beat is wack, it's like a kiddy keyboard 3 note melody! But those songs grew on me and now everyone talks about them like they're undisputed masterpieces, which is easy to do once the album had gone on to sell a shitload

I don't know if this song will blow up, but if it does we may well look back and say how it was dope, even though everyone is kind of  ??? and  :'( right now because it turned out to just be a song after all. People and DJs will probably give this a lot of play just because it's a new Dre beat, and it should hopefully pick up from there. He may then have a follow up one that seals the deal - something with Dre rapping or another high profile guest

well i'm glad you reviewed the track, both here  and through PM ( same goes for you Chad, thanks for that  ;) ) so i knew what to expect when listening to it the first time   :)

so it's indeed nothing mind blowing at all, but it's alright  ;) i'm feeling the laid back vibe  :)

anyway,what the fuck is up with the first part of the hook  :-\
come on Dre & Bishop, you can better   :P

by the way, i don't think this is the type of single Interscope wants for a 1st single at all  :P



yup and i tried to elaborate because there's no reason not to 8) plus a lot of people would accuse me of just hating, whereas there's a lot of reasoning for why i'd say this is pretty average, nothing special etc. i will still support bishop to the fullest and bump this though - it has a nice westcoast vibe and i'm always feeling dre tracks. however, my criticisms stand.
i understand.

the beat structure is pretty much the same as Lost Ones & Imagine though.

Mixing is perfect on this track, everything hits, love the drums and the chilled vibe... growing on me a lot

I think it's also a really content driven song, now I've properly listened to all the verses it really hits home with what the track is trying to do, it's not about having an insane instrumental on this one, the beat is just some laid back shit to let Bishop vent over, which he does well

This track Grows Up on me...it's good.
We are putting too much weight on these beats...and then we complain that hip hop is all about beats nowadays.
 

Matty

sounds a lot better in cdq - especially the bassline - and the track as a whole has grown on me a whole lot. hope bishop gets the full interscope machine behind the promotion though :0 but im still confident/hope the best is yet to come ;]
