above the law - uncle sam's curse
« on: March 04, 2003, 04:27:25 PM »
yo i'm bored so i'm about to short review this album for yall...oh btw, this album is undisputed west coast classic...one of the best albums to come out from the left coast..

1. return of the real shit - dope beginning, from the movie attica i think, after the intro, there comes the beat you've never heard anything like it before.. great track 5/5

2. set free - beat is pretty laidback, the girl gets kinda annoying but overall  its a banger 4.5/5

3. kalifornia - easily the best track on the album, the beat is MADDD crazy....it even switches up in the middle to a more darker beat...some shit you can just smoke to...it truly is a 'WEST COAST ANTHEM'  6/5

4. concrete jungle - the beat gets little repetitive but nevertheless its pretty dope..some smooth shit..chourse isn't all great..4/5

5. rain be for rain bo - OMG!!! this beat would make dr.dre jealous..its a def banger for sure..great lyrics....5/5

6. everything gonna be alright - i think this song samples one of NWA songs but i'm not too sure about it, the beat is very darkish...like a killers anthem or something but thats where the irony comes in - 5/5

7. black superman - OMG!! AGAIN!! first off, the intro is i think from the movie attica again but i'm not sure..anyways, the beat is just unbelieveable....great concept.. 6/5

8. the g in me - the beat is pretty boring here, probably the only flaw in this album, ATL don't sound great with their high pitch flow and annoying ass chourse once again 3/5

9.  uncle sams curse - the beat has a jumpy feel to it even though the concept isn't really, just ATL blaming the gov't for any situation that is fucked up and some others 4.5/5

10. one time two many - there is a little intro, YET ANOTHER innovative beat....i'm loving it..classic ONCE AGAIN...i think its kokane on the hook but not too sure...5/5

11. who ryde - YET ANOTHER INNOVATIVE BEAT!!!...this song def bangs in a car...i've tested ;D..tone loc makes a rare guest apperance and personally he almost ruined it..talking about bitches..chourse is very catchy 4.5/5

12. gangsta madness - little intro, alright beat,  a reality checking song...catchy theme...4.5/5


overall 5/5..its truly classic anybody who likes that west coast shit should def have this shit in their collection

Good review man. A total classic, and it's a shame that the shit is out of print. Still, my OG cassette ( ;)) still bumps! If only I hadn't left it too late to update it to CD!!! :'(

yes, thats a good idea, but just not a digitol one, like enhanced, just put it back in print like the original copys, i much rather have a original copy than a enhanced copy.

yeah, never thought of that. I guess you have to be realistic though. It would cost Ruthless a lot of money to go through pressing thousands and thousands of copies again, print all the inlays, do promotion, etc etc... and when you break it down a handful of west coast obsessives on an internet board who want a CD copy of Uncle Sam's Curse probably wouldn't justify that in the company's eyes!  ;)

It's a shame, it really is. This is a classic album and it sucks that some people won't get to hear it. I guess y'all will have to keep scanning those second hand shops. I can't even burn people copies 'cause my OG is on tape...  >:(

^but they'd probally get better prophet in return, everyone wants that album and for surely it'd sell out again and get its ranking higher than it probally is already, maybe....but i'd love for them to re-release it, especially on c.d. i'd buy 2 copies, one to bump to and one to keep sealed up just incase it gets jacked or broken or some shit ;)

^yeah true....maybe they should just print enough copies like 500 or 1000 and if they sell out and the demand is high they should print some more copies...i'm gonna start the letter now...

don't worry i'll make it sound really good and maybe we can have other people write letters....or maybe we can have people sign a petition to rerelease them...that would be good....everybody make a petition and go around and have people sign it...thats an even better idea...

peace

i dont got the o.g but i downloaded it and it's a banger defantly in my top 10.

i agree wit every rate you gave, accept 'the g in me' i would give it 4.5 couse the hook is tight and so is the beat.
