The Chronic easy, it was revolutionary. 2001 was great and had better production but the Chronic is just a way better album, Lil' Half Dead was a legend off this album without ever saying a word yet, RBX is know for a couple of lines and Nate debuted with one of the greatest hooks ever on Deez Nuttz. 2001 has Xxplosive and Next Episode, but it just doesn't have that stand out moment that made someone new like Hittman or those dudes on LA Niggaz a legend. Still a straight classic album and it showed Dr. Dre was by far the greatest producer ever, but Chronic it seemed so many people shined.

ugh, i don't care if you guys pick The Chronic, but PLEASE don't say "it was revolutionary, it set trends, blah, blah, blah". :puke:

that is the most faggot argument i've ever heard.

basically what you're saying is the first hip hop album ever is the greatest album of all time, because it was "revolutionary".

i see some of you guys rate albums on impact & shit & that's just fucking dumb; music is music, if it's great it's great; you can't compare albums based on "impact".

what you're saying is that there can never be another classic Hip Hop album, because we've seen it all, nothing can be new or "revolutionary" if it's been done the last twenty-five years.

give me a break people. :grumpy:

you're an idiot... impact plays a big part on what distinguishes a classic from a personal classic.. quality, innovation and impact = classic, understand faggot?

The question is what do YOU prefer. Not what made the biggest impact.

And dont get offensive.

impact = more similar music from different artists inspired by the original album.

I can see how someone can say that, unless they were actually there, and living it in real time, as opposed to reading about someone elses experience. And it's not to say "there will never be another revolution" like Chronic '92...

that's what i'm saying, you're basically saying that all those albums from the '90's are untouchable & NOTHING, can possibly be on that level.

Eminem is the last one to have "major impact" & that's only because he was an insane spitter, worked with Dre & most importantly, was white.

after Em, there isn't anybody who people we're just like, "omg, that's a certified classic fucking album, top albums ever."

nothing is better than a Wu-Tang album because it had more "impact" than anything in the last decade? get the fuck outta here..

^^^

you're an idiot... impact plays a big part on what distinguishes a classic from a personal classic.. quality, innovation and impact = classic, understand faggot?

no lol, that's my point; quality should be the only thing judged when it's compaing great albums or else we're going to be saying for the next 100 years Illmatic & The Chronic are the two best albums of all time & it's not debateable.

Thing is though, just like jaytee said;

...If a person wasn't around to experience the vibe of the time, then they probably wouldn't even understand....

it's easy to dismiss how much influence it had on hip hop, if you weren't around to see it unfold in front of you.

lol, way to put words in my mouth.

i never said it didn't have impact, i never denied how influencial it was.

but that doesn't label it the greatest album of all time.

look at College Dropout, classic album; wasn't "super influencial", wasn't "revolutionary", just a classic album.

Award for the dumbest post of this thread should be given to you.

just stop living in the past & accept todays music.

the way you guys sound, you just co-sign the older CD because clearly that has more "impact" when it was still a fairly new genre back then.

any coincidence like i said, Eminem is the last person to make a significant classic album with actual impact? it was basically the only thing the game hadn't seen, a white boy.

you mean to tell me 10 years go by & nobody dropped anything classic enough to be put in the conversation with older albums?

i'd personally like to welcome all of you to the 21st century.
