'hydromatic' - love the track, but the slightly sped up snippet sounded better. it sounds too slow now and the gift verse at the start is horrible, sounds so out of place. and what happened to other adlibs...

snippet version http://www.mediafire.com/?cut8y054092x723

much more lively!

edit: the tempo was completely changed. i'll be making a version at the original speed, with adlibs.

Yeah the original version is way better. More uptempo and the Gift intro is indeed a bit weird on the retail version

Not a massive fan of Quik but I'm gonna give this a quick skim through. Not sure whether to take all your ratings seriously as this is a west coast forum at the end of the day.

EDIT: The opening track is great.

slowed down by 3%...and the 'pop that thang' over the hook was dope. i dunno what compelled quik to slow it down and put gift yelling at the start instead. i'll be bumping the non album version if i can't be fucked to do a proper edit.

He did the same thing with Come 2Nyte off Under Tha Influence. The retail version was slowed down too.

yeah, that beat was changed a lot more than this one. the faster version is fairly fast sounding, whereas this track just loses all its bounce slowed down. got the OG version in good quality?

My conclusion is this is alot better than Trauma and overall it is a pretty good album. I just can't see myself listening to this alot as its just not my thing. Weakest track is Babylon. Just couldn't get into it at all. Time Stands Still is pretty weak too. Also why does Kurupt even bother anymore? He's an awful artist now, just hang up the mic.

3)Safe N Sound
4)Balance n Options
5)Book Of David
6)Way to Fonky
7)UTI
8)Truama

Everybody is wondering what Barack is going to do for us for the next 8 years, what are you going to do for yourself the next 8 years?

The quality of his mixing shows on here too. The average vbr bit rate is about 240kbps which is extremely impressive. I wish Primo would follow suit.

This thread is comedy gold.  These reactions are pretty embarrasing and a little sad.  A lot of sig worthy material here.
As to the album itself, it's obviously trash.  Just more of the same recycled beats and subject matter from Quik.  1997 called, it wants its music back.

There surely isn't alot of difference between 0 and 2 but when you see that Tha Blaqprint came in at an average of 139kbps at v2, you can see what I mean.

I'm not Quiks biggest fan but I can safely say that musically, this album is far from trash. Lyrically, it seems a bit average but you can't complain when he produces and writes the whole album himself. Have you even listened to it before coming to this conclusion?
