Something 2 Dance To - I agree. I also agree with you on "Rat-a-tat-tat" and "Nigga With a Gun" - I used to skip those too.

But "Stranded on Death Row", "Big Egos", "Bitch Niggas"? Wtf man?!

This is a classic example of the many dudes on the net who have no feeling for what a good album is, and how it flows as a complete piece of work. So many people are writing "wack...filler...skipable...trash" bout tracks on artists albums. If you think an album is say 40% skipable then give up listening to the artist. Better yet, go back to the drawing board and re learn how to appreciate music.

you can't tell others how to appreciate music as taste is personal

why do you feel offended?
he says he doesn't like certain songs, you obviously disagree.
that's cool, but no need to get offended

I didn't say anything on the Chronic was out and out "wack" ...I think there were tracks which weren't as good as others, which everyone seems to pretty much agree with

2001 is known for lots of filler... though obviously opinion varies a bit as to which are the most filler tracks... "Let's Get High" is definitely borderline wack though, lol

2001 imo is a perfect album. a true classic.

I love every single song on that album.

and I certainly dont think any of them deserves the title of ''filler''

I was never aware that everybody agree'd that "2001" had alot of Filler on it.  I mean I knew I preferred some songs over others but it wazn't like I never had tha others in rotation.  IDK, to each they own though, outside of this forum I never knew people had that impression on it.

Hahah automatic thread fail for bringing up The Chronic and 2001. I was under the impression those albums were loved because of their consistency.

Hahah automatic thread fail for bringing up The Chronic and 2001. I was under the impression those albums were loved because of their consistency.

Hahah automatic comment fail for not knowing that 2001 was criticized in many reviews for being overly long (Master P albums around that time started that trend of filling the entire CD with as many tracks as would fit) and so having a bunch of filler tracks

So what does a filler track mean to you?

Well in the case of 2001, it's the tracks that weren't as strong as some of the others, that were put on there to get it to 23 tracks and so fill the CD, because that's what artists were doing at the time, to give people more songs... that's why a lot of albums out at that time got criticized for having filler.

Normally you can tell filler because if you cut out those tracks, it makes the album stronger. Loads of classics have filler because the strong songs are good enough to still make the album considered classic, eg. Great Adventures of Slick Rick, Paid in Full, Saturday Night, etc.

With the Chronic it's tough because there aren't many tracks on it and even the less-good ones are still dope (especially compared to anything today), though if you're going to pick filler, you could probably take off Rat-a-tat-tat and A Nigga Witta Gun and the album would still be as good, if not even tighter.

You could definitely get rid of Something 2 Dance 2 and the Straight Outta Compton would still be classic.

No actually it wasn't. If anything it was criticized in some reviews for the lyrical content. Thread fail since no one agrees with you. You may have had a point if you had stuck to Dre's earliest work.

Also I disagree with your idea of what filler is. Every album has some songs that are stronger than others. That's the whole point of singles. Good songs are not fillers. Fillers are songs that you could do without listening to. But a lot of the songs you mentioned are songs that are loved by people. You apparently dislike some Dre songs that are classic to the rest of us.

 Well you kind of walked into a minefield with the thread-title alone.  lol  But I will agree with you on "Something 2 Dance 2."  I always hated that track.  I thought it was kind of funny when Priority Records released that "Straight Outta Compton" tribute album several years back, that no one even covered that song.  They probably couldn't find anyone that wanted to.

last time i checked, you stated that 2001 was overrated  :P

oh come on, it's not that bad.
i give props to UCC, as he's not scared to express his opinion( even though i don't agree with everything)

Lol - first two reviews I look up mention it -

The Source review: "a little disjointed and too long"
Allmusic review: "Padded out to 22 tracks, 2001 isn't as consistent or striking as Slim Shady"


Also I disagree with your idea of what filler is. Every album has some songs that are stronger than others. That's the whole point of singles. Good songs are not fillers. Fillers are songs that you could do without listening to.

No, singles are the songs that are meant to become hits on their own and draw attention to the album. Good album tracks are not filler... filler tracks are filler... I think you need to understand what filler means.

Thanks yo
The funny thing is, the whole point of the thread wasn't to diss Dre, as everyone seems to be misreading it as,
I don't even expect everyone to agree on which particular tracks were the filler ones, or which albums have filler tracks...

It was just to point out that some of Dre's best work is amazing and classic even with tracks that aren't all that,
so one so-so track for Detox (Kush) doesn't mean the album is ruined, because there are albums that have weak tracks that are still classics

for an album to even be considered as a classic there can't be any 'wack' or 'ok' tracks on there.

Completely untrue; in fact, this is only in the last 10 years or so that this philosophy has developed.

Classic= timeless, game-changing, groundbreaking, IMPACT.  it is entirely possible for an album to fit those attributes while still having a few OK tracks.




I loved 2001 as a whole, but some tracks WERE average.


Classic albums are not always flawless, and sometimes flawless albums aren't classic.
