The Bomb Squad & Prince Paul's production (two totally different styles) around the same era were a lot more REVOLUTIONARY. Whether you prefer Efil4zaggin, De La Soul Is Dead or It Takes A Nation... more is entirely a matter of taste though. I love them all.

Can this even be argued?

I just like how they talked about beating women and killing hoes that cheat on them and how they tie up women and pistol whip them, i mean, really crazy stuff.  Much more than just the pimp shit slapping hoes, they were downright violent to hoes.  I was listening to this just the other day and i was amazed at how far they went with some of the lyrics.  That kind of stuff would never fly today.  That was why i feel it was so revolutionary right there.  I don't know how they got away with it back in 91.

Dre's sonic jump in production from Straight Outta Compton/100 Miles And Running to Niggaz4life was light years ahead.

The blueprint for The Chronic.

Niggaz4life was dope, but it was still just layered samples, mostly loops, except mixed huge...

That's why the Chronic is held in higher regard and considered the revolutionary one, because it was the first to
really go all the way with having so much of the stuff replayed, so it could be mixed with more clarity.
That was a technique that hadn't really be explored that much before then.


The other albums normally named as the big leaps in production are things like -

Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation (loads of little samples)
De La Soul - 3 Feet High (loads of samples from different genres)
Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique (loooads of samples)
Ultramagnetic MCs (pioneered chopping, etc.)
A Tribe Called Quest - Low End Theory (whole album jazz style, incredible clarity, influenced Dre)
Pete Rock and CL Smooth - Mecca & the Soul Brother (lots of samples, subtle drum programming)

indeed. i'm just sayin the chronic about two or more notches higher production wise.

I think the production on Niggaz4life is better than the Chronic.. It's crisper and cleaner, something like a Michael Jackson album... It sounds more expensive.
