Warren G - Return Of The Regulator
« on: February 01, 2017, 08:49:56 AM »
I've been playing this album again the last couple days and I've always thought it was given too much hate.

Some absolute gems on this album and looking past the singles that were released from the album tracks like Ghetto Village, Somethin to Bounce Too & the heartfelt track about his mother Keepin It Strong are some of Warrens best tracks for me personally.

It might not be at the level of G Funk Era but it's still a damn good album that deserves more respect imo.

Agreed, this album was very good.  Especially "Something To Bounce To", Soopafly absolutely kills that track.  This was Warren's last good all around album.  His albums after that had a few good songs here and there, but this was his last fully playable album.

I think most people on DubCC love "Return Of The Regulator". It's my favorite Warren G album after the first one and if i'm being honest, it was his last great album.

And  it's not hard to tell why it's his last great album
Because he still was on Universal and there was money behind it

Great album !!

"Sassy ways" has not not been mentionned, I am surprised. This track is smooth as peach skin. Warren G said in an interview about favorite recording sessions or something that Nate did his thing "one take", totaly improvised. The studio was full of hot girls, supposedly Nate step behind the mic and laid his parts while keeping his eyes on the ladies, like if they were his muses. Tight man !

Agreed.  I think the forum respects this album, at the time we bumped it, and in hindsight it was a solid record.  I think Warren downgraded with each album--and that's not dissing him that is actually a testament to how solid his first four albums were--that the fourth was still rock solid. 

G Funk Era - 10/10 Classic
Take A Look Over Your Shoulder - 9/10 West Coast Classic - Personal Classic for me
Want It All - 7 out of 10 - Smooth throughout - yet another new sound
Return of the Regulator - 6 out of 10 - still a very solid album.  Some bangers. Bumps well in the ride.

All four records Warren came with a new sound in the production.  I also always loved the lyrics on his albums--I'm a nostalgic guy myself--and his lyrics always took a "back in the days" type of perspective

"I didn't do nothing but make people money and I didn't leave nobody high and dry.  Any album (on death row) people are going to check for.  But it's time for Dre to worry about Dre.  I'm focused on the new Snoop Doggs, not like that but you know what I mean."

My favorite Warren G song is "Havin Thangs" with his homie Jermaine Dupri and the Legend Nathan Dogg!

Regulate G Funk Era : 10
Take A Look : 8.5
I Want It All : 8.5
Return Of Regulators : 8
In The Midnight Hours : 7
The G Files : 6

This is more accurate to me, Return Of Regulator is a hot album, it cant be only 6 man

The intro on Return of the Regulator is banging, the bass is insane on that track.

I never understood the hate for that album.
