 I don't know if I can pick out one of them as being the best throughout the entire album.  To me, there were certain tracks where one of them stood out more than the others.  I think they all had a chance to shine on here.  But I have to agree with you that Joell did surprise me on this album.  He really brought his A-Game on here.  On the track "Sound Off," for example.  They all sound dope as fuck.  But I think Joell might have taken first place on that one.

I decided to add all the other tracks they made to the album before I listened to it...

1.  Sound Off
2.  Slaughterhouse
3.  Onslaught Ft. Nino Bless
4.  Lyrical Murders Ft. Kay Young
5.  Microphone
6.  Not Tonight
7.  The One Ft. New Royales
8.  Woodstook (Hood Hop) Ft. M.O.P
9.  In The Mind of Madness (Skit)
10.  Cuckoo
11.  Warror
12.  The Phone Call (Skit)
13.  Onslaught 2 Ft. Fatman Scoop
14.  Wack MCs
15.  Fight Club
16.  The Phone Call 2 (Skit)
17.  Salute Ft. Pharaoche Monch
18.  Pray (It's a Shame)
19.  Cut You Loose
20.  Rain Drops Ft. Novel
21.  Killaz Ft. Melanie Rutherford
22.  Move On Remix

So, yeah, with that said I think their album is fucking phenomenal but is missing those extra tracks that they gave us for free.

Joell Ortiz, as I mentioned, showed his versatility with his flow which is exactly why he's shining so hard on the tape.   How can you sleep on dude?  I tell you sons he is on the path to be a legend.   

Budden sounded dope for the most part and I loved his skit which is basically a big clever fuck you to Wu-Tang.  I have to admit his double time flow needs a lot of work. 

Crooked did his thing which is basically perfected so ....

Like Crooked Royce basically has his style perfected and he did his thing.

I had my speakers blasting loud so the album's production sounded tight but if you turn it down you can tell they deserve better production. 


I need to buy the album...

4.5 on the first listen, only track I wasn't really feeling at first was Killerz, it'll grow on me tho. Can't wait to pick this up, one of those cd's u could bump and not press skip, they definently lived up to the hype.

Dope ass album, but some annoying factors:

- Some of the hooks sounds real forced, they should def. work more on that..
- Joe Budden can be annoying at times. I don't get it, some times he rips it with a normal voice, but some times he's using this nasal voice, like he's impersonating some annoying female or something.
- I expected DJ Khalil to have 2 of the 5 hottest beats on the album, but instead he produced the 2 worst tracks, one of them even a single.. wtf.
- Why doesn't Ortiz get his Twista on, more often? He ripped it on track 1, he should try that again if the beat allows it.
- Skits.. throwing phone calls on the album is so 1994. At least do it on the end of a song, so it doesn't take up a track number.
- Cuckoo. Yes, it annoys me, lol.
- Why the motherfluck would you have a legend like Pharoahe Monch and only make them him do the hook.. Salute nearly begged for a Pharoahe verse.  >:( Same goes for the M.O.P. track that didn't make it.
- Name-dropping each of the group members so many times can a get a lil annoying, it's borderline ass-kissing. Done creatively most of the times though.

Nit-picking.. yeah, probably.  :D

Jome ain't hating.  He's just sharing thoughts.  Let's not make this negative....with that said...

To provide some reflection on your comments...not disagreeing just some counter arguments, thoughts i had

1.  I'm glad Ortiz doesn't use that flow all the time.  It makes appreciate him more when he switches it up like when Crooked I did W's Down.

2.  Dj Khalil is working on Detox and is most likely expensive

3.  What hooks do you dislike?

4.  I'm glad they kept guest verses to a minimum due to the fact their are 4 major spitters on the album, it's better they dominant.

5.  Name dropping "slaughterhouse" or any of the members is important only because if the blow outside of the internet  and their selective regional markets who knows who is who?

6.  Cuckoo is amazing.  I love when a track purposefully is something and succeeds.  Cuckoo is supposed to sound that way.  It's brilliant!  

As for the phone skits that's just nit picking but they were weak compared to Budden's skit.  It would've been better if they each had their own skit adapted to their individual personalities so you get a sense of each member.

I agree with most of that. Especially the skits. I dont think they were even necessary :-\

Monch def should've had a verse. 1 guest verse would've been fine with me, especially if it came from Pharoahe Monch.

 Wow...I just saw on another forum a fan-made version of this album where they cut Crooked I's verses out of the album.  >:(     They even cut his pic off the album cover. (Gave it some stupid name like "There's No I in Slaughterhouse." It was originally posted by some dude from a Joe Budden fan site.  The amount of hate Crooked I gets from some of the Joe Budden fans still amazes me.  Lol...And even some of the people on this other forum that were defending Crooked were saying shit like "oh, he wasn't that bad," or " Crooked's aight," or "every group has to have a weak link..." WTF!?! Weak Link?  Not that bad?  Dude was a standout on quite a few of the tracks.  I just don't understand the mentality.  Like when you sign up to be a member of the Joe Budden fan club, do they make you sign a paper where you agree to hate on Crooked I for the rest of your natural life?

Well you gotta understand that Joe made fun of Crooked I so they are obviously dickriding for Budden...goddamn, these must be the worst groupies ever.  :laugh:
I understand them though, they gotta cover-up any trace of Budden being the weakest link. Too bad Royce already said that Crooked killed these tracks.

Hah I would love to see 50 actually make a track with these dudes. He's cool as hell with Mr Porter so it wouldn't of been a thing to get that on the start of his track, bugged me out though lol

Bottom line, Budden stans make Crooked I stans look like casual fans. They operate on another level. I know it sounds funny like I'm exaggerating, but it's true.

Make no mistake about it though, I like Joe Budden's music, which is all that matters.

Mixtape material. Like action films in 2009, the album is too loud most of the time. Slaughterhouse is like a bodybuilding contest on a CD, everyone is just flexing their muscles. The songs are loosely connected together. Often I feel like I'm listening one of those awful "This is hits 199X" collections they put out in the 90s. I give it two and a half butcher knives out of five.

Mentionable songs:
Rain Drops
Onslaught 2
Cut You Loose

Dope album , far from being flawless though ... the overall production could have been better and darker , some hooks sound very forced , 3 skits are useless ...  I doubt I will still bump this in 2 or 3 months ...

this is why we had all those classics in the 90's; the Illmatics, the Me Against The Worlds, the Ready To Die's; nobody took out the scalpel & found every last thing they didn't about those albums. :laugh:

Yeah.  I've noticed the Budden fans on here are very respectful.  So it isn't all the Budden fans.  But apparently, there's several places online where the Joe Budden fans are more like Joe Budden Cult members.  I also like Joe Budden's music.  But I don't see where it's written in stone that if you like Joe Budden songs, you have to hate Crooked I songs. lol  That doesn't make even a little bit of sense.  That's crazy.  Even Joe Budden himself likes Crooked I's music.  Why would his fans, as a group, decide Crooked I "is what's wrong with hip hop," ?  Ridiculous.

the albums you mentioned were not flawless either ...  but they were much better than this one ....  it's not because 95% of rap is wack nowadays that I have to call the one of the 1st consistent album this we got this year a classic in my book ... y'all should take the negative critics on this album less seriously , Slaugterhouse ain't the second coming of hip hop ..
