This album fucking sucks .This seriously sounds worse than the Fixxers stuff , but similar in style to it . This shit is SOFT AS FUCK . Quik really needs to retire or go back to his roots . His flow on the mic is even getting worse . Even the Cube track is gay . This will be the last time I even bother  with him .All these songs are either aimed at the ladies , or have weak ass R and B choruses ...Not even 2 tracks on here that resemble the classic Quik .

you are full of shit

You're a fucking idiot. Judging by your karma, you are a straight hater. What music do you like? It's obviously not rap. This album is solid as fuck. Go sit on a cock you faggot bitch. Go rub one out & choke yourself to your hair metal music......

Stanning ain't easy, but somebody's got to do it.

go listen to drake and STFU

Listen to "Can't Fuck Wit A Nigga" from the Menace to Society soundtrack and tell me that's a party track . He was best at being straight gangster ; the music was phenomenal ..That track is what he is best at..Scratching , sampling , and going hard on the lyrics . This new shit is SOFT AS FUCK, even worse than the Fixxer's bullshit .

I haven't heard this album yet but I agree with dude who said Quik changed his style.  I became a fan of his after listening to "Quik is The Name".  Loved "Way 2 Fonky" and "Safe & Sound".  After that though, it all went down hill for me.  A few songs here and there were dope but overall I was disappointed in his direction.  I'll give this one a shot and see how this record is though.

didn't even like rhytmalism?

Pretty inconsistent reviews ... 1/5 to 5/5 people saying this is the best shit ever.  I'd be interested in what professionals review this.  Anyone know the Source, XXL, or any other magazine for that matter?  For me I'm still about 3/5.

This album has dope beats but boring arrangements, and the vocals were clearly an afterthought when putting this project together.  Let's keep it real: Quik should try releasing a 50 min instrumental album and let people just use their imagination or they can do their own freestyles to it or whatever.  On a lot of the tracks, the vocals distract from the beats and make the songs more boring than they would be otherwise.  Again, the arrangements are very simple and plain, as if Quik made dope skeleton beats and left them as that instead of developing them further AFTER laying down the vocals.  Quik said he did this whole album in a few months, and it shows.  A lot of it sounds half-baked.  Quik is a talented enough musician to craft dope beats like these in a short amount of time, but I wish he would have spent six more months on post-production to flesh each song out a lot further.

Overall, I'd say if this were a first draft, I'd give it an A, but since this is this final draft, so to speak, I have to give it a C.  Dope beats + lackluster everything else (including the other production elements) = average, just imo.  And "C" means "average" in the American school system  ;D

excactly,like i said in my post earlier,it needs production,review,flow.he has done it 4 others,why not now on his own album,he had good stuff to work with but didnt finished all the way.first draf yes.

Anyone catch the censored line in the third verse of "Killer Dope"?  At 3:25, it goes:

"I ain't no house nigga like ________, if this if UAC music what makes it so aweful?"

Anyone know who he was talking about in that line?

I heard that too....Quik always throwing some shots at somebody...coulda been AMG

Is the remix of Boogie Til You Conk Out only available on that mixtape? I'd like to hear a version of that remix without the Quik outro.

Gave this album a few spins yesterday and I must say I'm hella impressed 8)

Def one of the best West Coast releases in the last 3 years and as far as Quik discography goes - it's up there with "Under Tha Influence" and def better than "Trauma". It has that vintage Quik shit mixed with a new "Blaqkout" type of sound. But from a musical stand point, it's really a great project. Only track I can't put myself into is "Poppin" - I don't have nothing against minimalistic production as I liked "9x Outta 10" a lot but this one is just ain't my cup. The rest is good, great and bangin'. Best tracks for me are "Nobody", "So Compton", "Do Today", "Boogie Till You Conk Out" and "Flow For Sale". Overall, great album for today's standards - def going to cop it 8)

I've heard the album & its a good album.  I'd rate it up there with rhythm-a-lism & balance & options for good dj quik albums.  Only songs that weren't good were no.1 fire & brimstone & no.10 across the map.  I hope I can get this album.

as a huge quik, im kinda dissapointed.. i don´t know but the sound doesnt fit the time, i liked where quik was going with the trauma and blaqkout sound.. this sounds like he tried to do rhytmalism in 2011.

for me its an 3.5/5 album

i´m just missing some stand out beats, like ladies und thugs, till jesus comes, or cream n your panties, and blaqkout stuff

most beats are average on this one, and i´m sure that most quik fans who are celbrating this album wouldnt call that album excellent when there was an other name on the disc  8)

Dope album from Quik, a little over-hyped on here though ..

Tracks that stood out:

Fire & Brimstone
Do Today
Ghetto Rendezvous
Killer Dope
Hydromatic
Nobody
So Compton
Groove
