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.

:laugh:

this post is comedy gold. anyone with ears can hear this album is clearly not trash! get the hell outta here with that bullshit :P

"I got a room full of your posters
And your pictures man

for real? you don't like tracks like 'do today', 'ghetto rendezvous' or 'so compton'? shit is crazy if you ask me, but it was really only quik fans hyping it in the first place.

i guess there is a lack of conversation on the actual music, i'm sure peeps will drop some more detailed reviews in a bit.

i'd say its better than trauma, somewhere close to under tha influence, but not as good as B&O or Rhythamalism. one thing for sure is that it's great music, but if you're not feeling it then fair nuff.

'So Compton' is a standout near the end. On some rhythamalism shit.

I'm sorry but I gotta agree.  Don't pull out the hate card it is what it is.  I'm really really disappointed.  Bumped it once in my ride, no tracklisting, and overall the album didn't have the X factor everyone is talking about.  
Many of the songs sound the same or similar, and there was way too much Rhythmalism re-hash on there... NOt to mention the snares on there sounded like something you would hear from the early 1990s... I kept thinking about that.  Bun B was sick though, I'll give him that.  Also how the hell are you supposed to listen and enjoy the last track?!  :o
Damn the first two minutes made me feel like throwing the cd out the window.  It sucked that I had to listen to the dope track that came after it then wait another 3 mins for Quik's groove.

Got dam I'm so disappointed... very generic sounding.  High expectations... decent album but nothing great.  I think people calling Quik a "genius" on this one are high are stans.  Definiitely can do a lot better.  :boohoo:

he can do better, you aint hating. if you're not into the rhythamalism type of sound that much, there isn't a great chance you'll enjoy this. but i could listen to plenty of "Rhythmalism re-hashes" without getting bored, it's a timeless sound. if anyone who thinks that is a stan...then yeah.

Well the point of an artist keeping his fans and getting new ones is to evolve.  If he's going back 15 years that's not for me.  And actually Rhythmalism is my favourite or second favourite Quik album, I love it.  I'm not calling you a Stan in particular I'm just saying if you think Quik is a "musical genius" based on this album and how he saved the west ... well... you know  :-\

if you can do timeless sounds again and again, i'd say there's a fair argument for 'genius'. but it's all subjective. not thinking you're calling me a stan, just saying that having a sound that changes or doesn't change at any particular time is not a sign of quality. the coast factor doesn't even come into it, it's all about the style of music. you could say the better the quality, the more nuanced changes can be when listening to new music. but yeah, pretty damn big quik fan.

Quik is a musical genius, and this record is dope. Is it his best? No, but I'd put it pretty high up there. Definitely on par with UTI and MUCH better than Trauma. I'm not high or a stan for praising this album. If you don't like it, then fine, but I think that's a really fucked up thing to say. Most people here like it, some don't. I went through something similar with that Kanye West album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy". Everyone was talking about how dope and different it was, but I thought and still think that it's nothing more than an average album. And this is coming from a big Kanye fan. Shit is just like that sometimes.

Yup I can see that.  But I think if Dre did that ... if he did a Chronic sounding album from 92 he'd get roasted like a motherfucka!  Actually I'm pretty sure some stans would pull out the sniper rifle and threaten to kill him and lynch Jimmy while their at it lmao  :o

Back to Quik I'm gonna give it a second bump and I'm positive I'll like it more.  It sounds like an album that will have to grow on you.  First impression wasn't good but I had sky-high expectations after Trauma.  Some stand-outs for sure and some generics.

Well I meant that if you think he is a genius based on this album then sorry but I would have to say that's a Stan comment because it isn't THAT good... but then again.. your right about subjective aspect.  But most would probably agree I'd be stan (well I am) if I thought D.A.Z. was an ingenious and innovative album.

1 Thing I Will ADMIT Tho, (& It's Not Easy For Me To Say This) ...............................QUIK NEEDS TO GET BACK TO HIS BETTER WAY OF RAPPIN' ON THESE INSTRUMENTALS, His Lyrics R Too PLAIN & When He Raps He Says Words So Separately & Clear Like He's Trying To Make Out What He's Saying Instead Of Letting It Ride Tha Track & Be  Little More Fonky & Creative Like "Safe & Sound", "Rhythmalism" etc. Also He Makes His Voice A Little TOO LOUD Instead Of Mellowing It Oout A Lil So It Can Sound Smoov Yet Gangsta

I Miss His Distinct Rap Delivery On Tracks (For Example):

On Tracks Like......
"Put It On Me"
"Hand In Hand"
"So Many Ways"
"Focus"
"Trouble"

WHERE IT ALL JUST FITS & He Messed Around A Lil Better With His Words.


WEST !!!

it really depends what type of stuff you're into. after that, it doesn't matter when or when it sounds like it was made. good music is timeless. everyone shoild be open to new sounds, but it has to be good.

@ Matty,
Quit Trying to defend quik to the end bro, it doesent look good on your part. No matter what you do, its not gonna change peoples mind on what they think about the album.
This album isn't for everyone. they can listen too gucci mane, lil wayne or whatever else they want but my point is, we all have our own standard of good music and it hits us different. just like different genres of music.
Voice your opinion about the album and move on. Fuck everybody else if they dont agree. It's an opinion!

My Opinion is quik is underrated, doesn't get the credit he deserves while Dr Dre is overrated, doesn't produce his own shit, doesn't write his own rhymes and gets ALL the credit for just adding his name to it. will people disagree and think he did everything? yes! but who cares.
support it if you like. if not download it ;D

Love this album most of the tracks are good KK Kills So Compton love that track and as someone who grew up in the 80’s and 90’s I love the analogue sound of the album I have not brought a hard copy of a rap album in years as I no longer like new rap music but I will buy this,

Listen to "Poppin" with your Subwoofer... my God! It doesn't even have the Kicks but it destroy your walls.
