Relapse was definately bangin', I don't know if I would say it was the best in the last 7 years though. Dre arguably produced better tracks on Get Rich or Die Tryin' and The Documentary, which were both crazy albums sonically.

Had to check the user-name.. twice.  :P

I would like to nominate the Underground-beat as well, when the beat fades away at the end you can hear some insane effects, like a choir is part of the beat.

Yeah when I first heard Underground I was blown away at different parts, some real motion picture shit.

I'd say best production on an album since 04/05. Documentary, Big Bang and some others had some crazy beats, but as a whole they are not even close to this one. Dre did his thing, and if this is a hint of what Detox will sound like, i'm all for it. First it was G-Funk, then the 2001 Piano's and Guitars sound, now some motion picture, choir & bass shit. This right here is the new dre sound.

the thing with this album is that the ENTIRE album bangs, other albums like Big Bang, GRODT, had mad fillers on them and some real weak shit

I'm sure some eastcoast albums have had much better production.

Great production, BUT The Doctor's Advocate had better production, IMO.

There are only two songs on Relapse I still give rotation.
 

Matty

not really feeling the production on relapse a huge amount. this is a minority viewpoint, but i think its pretty flat sounding. if its even a small indicator of what detox will sound like, then that album will come in WAY, WAY below my expectations. at the moment i'm borderline thinking that dre has genuinely lost his touch, while still holding out hope that there will be some better sounds coming from his production camp.

hopefully relapse is just a one-off but at the moment i'm more interested in hearing an a-grade khalil production than a dre/dawaun parker/batson beat.

got a feeling that there's too many yes men, nobody to tell him that shit just isn't bumping compared to his previous work. but lol @ bishop lamont agreeing with that radio host that crack a bottle is 'horrible' :laugh: his album probably has some really good shit on it (dre wise) but at this rate we'll never get to hear it...

the beats are mediocre homie, and that goes for nearly every new dre beat that aint got storch or elizondo co producing with him, i hate myself for saying this but 90% of down south beats shit on the production of relapse, it was realy nothing special, as far as "west coast" beats go now, the crown holder is j.r rotem, he's producing the beats i expect to come from dre

Lol word, have to give props to LBIA for being objective. BTW I told Matty that he increases the volume of that Underground joint and he did but it didn't help much. Crazy effects though.

But yes I do agree, I've also said in Outbound that this is the best produced album since 2001. There's no doubt in my mind about that.

EVERY LAST ONE OF ''Y-O-U'' BELIEVE THAT DR. DRE HAS MADE THESE SONG's FOR ''Y-O-U''.

To me...The Big Bang and Doctors Advocate is the top 2. Fave track on Relapse tho is Stay Awake!
Everybody is wondering what Barack is going to do for us for the next 8 years, what are you going to do for yourself the next 8 years?

No disrespect Matty, you know I respect your opinion but lately your Dre comments have been real suspect. Like you have this alien, 3020 expectations from him but then you when Khalil or Quik drop really weak shit you're like "it's banging!". I feel like the direction you want from Dre is either unrealistic (those techno inspired songs you sent me via pm) or you have a wierd taste (caliming Shit Popped Off is what Detox should sound like, when the beat is mad boring).

And fuck what Bishop said, Crack A Bottle beat >> Grow Up or No Stopping Carson
 

Matty

fuck that :laugh:

best dre beats since 2001 = outta control rmx, get up, shit popped off (based on how it sounds in skeleton form)

they are the tracks that really got my head nodding 8)

and i never claimed no wack shit from quik or khalil was all that, although there's been some disagreements on a few khali tracks. 'hey playa' and 'fuck y'all' are fire!!! 8)

I don't think Bishop was hating on the Crack A Bottle beat. It was a nice beat but the song overall sucked, mostly because of the terrible chorus.

 No Stoppin Carson >> Crack A Bottle >> Grow Up

and that's rating the beat. Grow Up was a better song than Crack A Bottle

and you must not listen to a lot of hip hop albums if you think Relapse is the best produced album in years.

There definately are some heaters on this but in general this is NOT the best produced cd since in the last 6 -7 years and is definately not the best cd top to bottom since 2001. There is music past dre for y'all just to inform you. I know the thread starter knows this through all the stuff he says about dre but the production on documentary is better and more original than this. This has some great moments but its not amazing in terms of production at all from top to bottom and alot of the beats are recycled.

Still some real heated beats.

Insane, bagpipes, stay wide awake, underground = Top beats, but dre has made better shit.

Last real detox moment from dre was start from scratch imo in alot of ways, the beat was a monster and dre and storch did there thing. They mix that super professional sound with banging beats. Problem is i doubt they work together at all now and his new team are starting to find some team but im not sure they're as gifted as he previous cats. Even on relapse, elizondo dre beats usually seem to bang the most but he was not even the best cat in dres team when dre was making fire on a regular. The production even on cheers is arguebaly better than this.

Definately not the best produced cd since 2001 but there are some nice moments on this.

I doubt detox will sound like this, dre will im sure have fresh shit beats wise on that with a big sound to it, this is alot of dre tracks where some bang but its shit we've heard from dre many times, nothing new mostly imo.

Nothing wrong with Grow Up at all, dope beat to spark a blunt to. It wasn't supposed to be a banger, and it wasn't, some dudes expect every Dre beat to be Outta Control though.

At Matty >> if there's one thing we agree on is the Outta Control remix being the best Dre beat post 2001 so let's leave it at that  :)

At Rapsodie >> I must have misunderstood what Matty said about Biishop rating Crack A Bottle, I thought we were talking beat wise. Grow Up is definitely the best song out of those 3.

Dre was recycling on Documentary too: Westside Story >> mix of In Da Club and Still Dre and Higher >> Outta Control. Start From Scratch was an amazing production though, no doubt.

And let's not forget while albums like GRODT, Doc, Massacre, Big Bang were all sick production wise they all had 10 different producers, which automatically looses the battle with cohesive vibe that Relapse has.
