For the past two weeks, I've been listening to this album in loud volume...

When this album was released i gave this a 7/10...today for me..this shit is 9.7/10

This album is almost perfect.. only thing wrong is Across The Map.

Poppin' is too funky..remind me some Beastie Boys shiiit..

Fire and Brimstone too Futuristic-Trip-Hop-Eletro shit...Ghetto Rendezvous..Quik lyrics goin nuts.

Flow For Sale is fresh..Hydromatic piano is  :o

Boogie Till You Conk Out beat is very complex

Time Stands Still, it's like a Quik version of Joe - All The Things..

Nobody is a classic funk record...

The High Points in this:

Do Today...it's like 80's music..timeless

Luv of My Life...when this shit dropped on Power 106...My Reaction: Quik is Back Motherf****s

So Compton (This is so good that not even need a Quik verse)

Killer Dope: "And I play my own piano, dont call yall for no sessions"

Real Women: Quik and Jon B... 8)   THIS FUCKIN SHIT SHOULD'VE BEEN BILLBOARD TOP 10

The End:  :firedevil:  This beat is like Who?  Dr.Dre ?? Who?

Shit was Dope..

DJ Quik music it's like wine..better with time!!

Haha, REAL TALK HOMIE. My opinion of The Book of David was very high when the album released and it continues to rise. Listening to Book of David and Midnight Life just makes me wish Quik released more music.

i had never noticed "So Compton" was actually a KK's solo cut.
Trauma is to me better than Book of David. Too much tunes i dislike ("Luv of my Life", "Rendez-Vous", "Boogie", "Babylon","Time Stands Still") Plus, i always found Quik's Groove boring (i'll be banned from this forum, i know) . The only one i enjoy is the one from his House of Blues album. Whereas i enjoy listening to Trauma from start to finish.

I really like Blaqkout. From the beginning to the end. My favorite from Quik. Don't know or care if it's progressive/experimental/whatever I just like listening to it.

The downfall of blackout is kururt. His verses are lazy and complete trash.

which is actually Quik's Groove 1. But dont get me wrong, i actually like Quik's Groove III and Quik's Groove VII, not the Jodeci one but the one off his Best Of compilation. Also, the "Reprise" off Rhythm-al-ism is great.
And i'm currently listening to that "DubCNN.com Presents: DJ Quik Quiks Grooves Compilation" and i'm really enjoying those grooves  :P. Actually, the ones i dont like are his latest (9 off "Midnight Life" and 8 off "Book of David).

I'm really glad we got the Boogie Til You Conk Out remix on the mixtape because its leaps and bounds ahead of the album version.

i just listened to "The Audio Biography of David" (link) yesterday, i can't believe i had never heard the remix of "boogie till you conk out", which i'm sure might be the OG version of the song because the voices flow so well with the music. i always hated the album version cos it's flat. That mixtape version is so funky-boogie. And even though the music on the lp version is complex and futuristic, Quik should have recorded new vocals over it.

Quik's best solo record to date?

The hidden track at the end is pure bliss.

Can't forget the remake of Street Level Entrance - I loved this album and it still gets constant play to this day.
