This album sucked. Not horrible like Blaqkout but still not good. The thing is, Quik has been highly regarded as extremely underrated as a producer. But IMO he's also underrated as a lyricist. He's not an mc but dude was always sharp, witty, and kinda funny with his words. This album he just nosedove into a sea of wackass lyrics. Never got into this album.

Wow even despite Kurupt BlaQKout was a great summertime album. Easily a 3.5/5 for me.

That album sucks regardless of what season it is.

Nah man...Fuck Yall, Hey Playa, Blaqkout, Ohhhh, and The Appeal are all dope cuts off of Blaqkout. There's some wack tracks on there, sure, but it also has some classics. Quik was hit and miss on this album, but when he hit, the shit was bomb.

agreed on blaqkout. take the best tracks from that with some of the BOD material and you have quik breaking into new ground, as good as ever.

That's the truth. Quik in recent years has been experimenting. Sometimes the experiments fail. But other times they result in the best music of his career. The recent leaks - What Would the World Be Like and Life Jacket - are both top notch Quik tracks. Quik is not declining with time. If he released an album full of tracks like Life Jacket, it would be the best of his career.

book of david was forgettable and mediocre. only had a couple tracks worth remembering. he needed a dope guitar player and some other session musicians. album doesnt sound lush like his old shit.

i really wish he could do a full update on the smooth rhythmalism sound, could make for an exceptional album. that sound has basically cropped up already, it's amazing, but not as one full package. and he has the ability to do that anytime, he's even mentioned it. dunno if you saw the video but he's working at some new studio now and getting things popping, with g-one too. those two and rob bacon are the dream team.

Agree with others who said mix Book of David best songs with Blaqkout and you got a classic.

I just revisited Blaqkout recently and I still really enjoy it. "Book of David" was cool but it never quite resonated with me like most of the other Quik albums.

Which video are you talking about? Don't think I've seen it. Great news though.

Anybody who says Book of David sounds less sonically rich than Quik's previous albums needs to get their ears checked! Like Quik said in the Sunset interview, the tracks on the Book of David are pure like diamonds - other producers are making Cubic Zirconia.

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.

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.
