should be hear in a few days........was it worth the wait?

Most hip-hop is now keyboard driven, because the majority of hip-hop workstations have loops and patches that enable somebody with marginal skills to put tracks together,...

Unfortunately, most hip-hop artists gravitated towards the path of least resistance by relying on these pre-set patches. As a result, electric guitar and real musicians became devalued, and a lot of hip-hop now sounds the same.

I just had a quick search on one of those computers in my local virgin... no sign of it coming out on shelves over here. all they had listed was that old track "the banger" on 12" (i've got that..)

ok.. two things.. the one i dlded doesnt have those tracks ^^^  :o

but in reality, they arent really on the retail...

second...
the track animalistics hasnt changed, but the track meditation does have a new beat, it even sounds to me like he's rerecorded it.. seems slower.. its a minute longer than the older version i have, but no where near as good.


my fave tracks....

whos that  (already played to death as is b-side to prisoner)
prisoner (already played to deah, as is the single)
karma - first time i've heard it, think i could get into this one
meditation i liked the original :(
animalistics - played to death on the legend of bigfoot bootleg
the underground - not sure, might warm to this one, but not sure about him signing
single mother - not heard before.. seems deep.. might feel this one after more bumps

hmm altogether.. not entirely impressed... :/  shame

I ordered it today (on cede.ch and they claim to have the bonus cd too). But I still didn't get all my previous orders before so I hope those fools just don't wait and send it all together... >:(

But it's much easier for me to pay with my country's currency so I always try to stick to CHF.

Another thing.. anyone whose downloaded off mIRC.. does the song "Shine" cut off about 30 seconds or so before the end for you? It does for me, and I really wanna hear the rest of the song.. wondering if it was just a downloading error or an error with the uploaded album.. i dun wanna download it again without knowing..

My favs:

Who's that
Some love, some hate
Prisoner
Karma - sounds like a hit to me... sweet sample, sounds Alchemistic..
Meditation

I think it's safe to say that the 1st part of the LP is a lot better than the 2nd.

Damn, that's almost like 2 diff. tracks..
I'd say that the OG is rawer, but a little unpolished.. the singing in the background is dope.

The pack I got is a fucked up rip.  No bonus CD, two songs are cut short and the outro is combined with the track 18.  I guess I'll just rip it myself when it comes and put it back on the old iPod.

I liked the intro, I usually would like to get straight to the music on track 1 but this isn't bad.  It's good to see minimal guests, I'd prefer zero but this is okay.  The album is too long but I just prefer a 14 track album max, but there isn't any filler that I've noticed so far, some okay songs but no trash.  

"The Underground", "Triger Trail" (No Escape), "Karma" (Over & Over), "The Block Party" (The Umph), "One Life" & "Animalistics" were all on the Rawkus Advance.  And they put them pretty much all together.  I found that odd, I thought they would have mixed the old tracks with the new ones.  I would have thought "Away From The Sun" would be on here.  It would fit in nicely.

Not putting "Secret Wars Pt. 2" on the album isn't something that I wouldn't do.  And I guess they decided to cut his song with Saigon and Pretty Ugly.

He rerecorded "Meditation" for sure, there are new lyrics and his delivery and flow are switched up.  At first when I noticed it was a reworked "Meditation" I thought it was ass but it grew on me quick.  Yes, I like it more than the original.  One of the better songs on the album.


The "Official The Last Emperor Information Thread" is more accurated and I added some reviews and some other songs to the discography.  You can get there by clicking on his name in my sig.

And if you wanna any songs there I have them in the best quality you can find.  Find me on mIRC, PM me, E-mail, or whatever if you want anything.  I'll give you every song there if you want.
