IM DISAPPOINTED

then go and buy britney's new album  ::)


I replayed this album many times and I'm sorry I'm gonna have to downgrade it to a 3/5 at best.  Disappointing and I find myself skipping a lot of the tracks.  If not, I'll skip them at the end ... very repetitive.   :grumpy:

i have been bumpin this shit all week to get a feel for it, i'm sorry to say i skip half the songs. there is good beats but not one classic beat. i'm glad i bought it because i got the whole quik catalogue, but this album is wack. 2/5. Daz album is way better i picked both up at the same time, i never would have expected that. the first three beats on that daz album are all very memorable and classic imo.

also what the fuck is up with the non existant percussion section on boogie till u conk out and other tracks? that shit is not a good look. i hated when warren g did it on his last album n it just seems lazy or like they were trying toohard to be original, anyone else notice this? way to many skippable tracks on this bod album. very dissapointing.

Made it 3 tracks

16. The End? Intro ft. Garry Shider (I don't always feel like listening to two minutes of him singing)
17. The End?
18. Quik's Groove 9

not quite as cohesive but tracks like not today and so compton easily put this ahead of trauma for me. trauma has a much harder sound and i think quik is most in the zone with his trademark smooth, funked-out tracks.

Yeah but lyrically for me BOD was lazy on a few tracks. Trauma lyrically was more on point. Musically though I dig the production on BOD. Not a bad release, one of those albums that is a grower for me I can tell the more I listen to it. Definitely will be bumping it all this summer.

yeah you're probably right, the music is more what i'm listening for. having said that, i think quik has some strong vocal performances on BOD (luv of my life, killer dope) and he definitely tries a lot of different things. there's a couple of funny lines in across the map that stuck in my head 'you little monkey' :laugh:

For me, production with Quik I never waver with it. I'm one of the few that digged Under The Influence, that is a dope album to me. Production I always know I am gonna get something fresh and innovative from him. Lyrically Quik is either surprisingly dope or average for me. Still with all that said album for album he has one of the best catalogs in hip hop hands down IMO.

i know poppin' is the one of the least liked tracks and i'm not keen on it either, but the production is pretty interesting. the synths and atmosphere reminds me a lot of this...

Agreed.  It's in heavy rotation for me now that I have the hard copy.

I think most people want a more consistent album from Quik, and it's only right that their expectations are high, the man is a musical genius.

With that said, I do skip some tracks, and that's weird from album coming from him.

Ghetto Rendevous and Luv Of My Life are, to me, timeless classics. You can hear G One all over Luv Of My Life.

It's a damn shame G One didn't do more on this album. I truly beleive that's what this album is missing.

Ghetto Rendevouz was weird and uncomfortable for me. Like I don't need to know all that info.
