DJ Quik - Rythm-al-ism
« on: July 31, 2002, 12:22:26 PM »
DJ Quik – Rhythm-al-ism

1. Rhythm-al-ism…Tight ass production.  Electric guitars are a nice touch.  Quik flows his ass off.  My only complaint is the track is too short.  4/5
2. We still party…Soft, laidback production.  Quik lays down some hella tight verses.  Dionne Knighton sounds perfect on the hook.  5/5
3. So many wayz…Quality production matched with tight verses from Quik and all guest artists.  A+ hook.  4/5
4. Hand in hand…Soft production, almost R&B-ish.  It fits the song well though.  Hook sounds great.  3.5/5
5. Down, down, down…Weird production, but it still sounds good.  Suga Free’s verse stands out as the best on the song.  3.5/5
6. You’z a gangsta…Smooth laidback production.  He squashes the beef with MC Eiht here.  Great lyrical content.  Catchy hook.  4.5/5
7. I useta know her…The beat is too fast.  Still, Quik keeps his flow consistent with the fast-paced production and has some interesting lyrics, then you forget how fast the beat is.  3.5/5
8. No doubt…The beat gets your attention right off the jump.  You can’t help but nod your head to it.  Playa Hamm and Suga Free appear.  Suga Free lays down another hella tight verse.  4/5
9. Speed…The beginning of the track promises to be a tight beat, but then it changes up into another fast beat.  Quik flows well, but the beat is just too fast.  3/5
10.   Whateva U do…Straight R&B flavored track, and damn, it sounds great.  Quik sounds comfortable as hell flowing to the beat.  Dionne Knighton provides another bomb ass hook.  4.5/5
11.   Thinkin’ bout U…Nice laidback beat.  Verses are average, but the smooth production really make it worth listening to.  4/5
12.   El’s interlude…El DeBarge is featured here on a 4 minute R&B track.  It’s a smooth track, but you really have to be in the mood to listen to it.  3.5/5
13.   Medley for a “V” (The pussy medley)…A long track featuring many guest artists including Snoop Dogg and Nate Dogg.  Quik’s on the last verse spitting his rhyme backwards???  Smooth production.  3.5/5
14.   Bombudd II…Jamaican sounding track.  Boring track, nothing worth hearing.  1/5
15.   Get 2getha again…Features 2nd II None, AMG, El DeBarge, and Hi-C.  Good beat and decent lyrics.  3.5/5
16.   Reprise (Medley for a “V”)…outro

OVERALL…4.25/5

This album is just littered with quality tracks.  Only one track gets a perfect rating, but nothing is worth skipping except for  “Bombudd”, which is basically an interlude anyway.  The guest artist deliver on almost every track they appear on, and Quik never disappoints on the mic.  Consistent production and flow from Quik.

I love this album! Songs like "So Many Wayz", "I Useta Know Her" or "No Doubt" show how versatile DJ Quik is as a producer.

This is really a half assed review. I cant believe you gave bomb bud 2 1/5. Just cause you dont like regaee doesnt mean its a bad song. Also you're just saying if its a good beat and if the lyrics are ok. If I didnt have this cd I might think its just average by reading this but its so much better.

Well, that is why this section is all about OPINIONS.  I put MY ratings on a song.  So am I supposed to factor in if OTHER people like songs on MY reviews?  No, everybody's taste in music and songs is different, so respect my opinion and I'll respect yours.

......so what else is "half-assed" about it?  You said by reading this you'd think it'd be an average CD.  Did you not look at the song and total album ratings?  4.25/5....uh, that's well above average.

I said it was half assed because you put a line or two for each song. Thats why id think it was just average. People always overrate cds so I wouldnt even pay attention to the 4.5/5 Id just think if all you could say about the songs was "the beat was good and rhymes were good" it would just seem average. Not really good. Therefor not worth my money.

I LOVE Speed... the flow's just brilliant, the beat's fast but the impressive thing is he keeps up with it without messing up the lyrical quality... thats a 4+ song for me..otherwise I agree...

1. Rhythm-al-ism Right when you put the cd in the deck, you know you're in for a treat just based on the first song, a melodic rhythmic joy ride 4/5

2. We still party Yall got to hear this in a club. It sounds even better in that environment. 5/5

3. So many wayz I love this song. 5/5

4. Hand in hand Some smooth r&b type shit with james debarge on the hook. 4.5/5

5. Down, down, down Suga Free!!!! Catastrophe!!!!!! 5/5

6. You’z a gangsta No I'm not! He really explains a lot of the drama that's happened, including his beef with Eiht, the drama around Biggie, abandoning gangsta rap and the violence and negativity that surrounds it. You knew at this point in his career that Quik matured as an artist. 4.5/5

7. I useta know her Some funny lines by AMG.
4/5

8. No doubt Another great Suga Free verse! 4.5/5

9. Speed This is my favorite song on the album. The beat is fuckin sick, 135 bpm and AMG and DJ Quik just flow over it perfectly. 5/5

10.   Whateva U do A Real slow r&b groove. There are some nice instrument solos at the end although it does go for a while. 4/5

11.   Thinkin’ bout U Some more smooth shit by Quik. 4/5

12.   El’s interlude To me, this is the only lull in the album. It just seems out of place and the only reason that this isn't a 5 mic album for me. The El Debarge song on Balance and Options is much better. 2.5/5

13.   Medley for a “V” (The pussy medley) A fun, bouncy track featuring everybody and they mama. Snoop, Nate, AMG, II2None, Hi-C and El Debarge all get down. 4.5/5

14.   Bombudd II Sequel to the original Bombudd on Quik is the Name. 4/5

15.   Get 2getha again…Features 2nd II None, AMG, El DeBarge, and Hi-C.  Great way to close out the album. Nice.  4.5/5

16.   Reprise (Medley for a “V”)…outro

Overall: 4.5 mics, my second favorite Quik album, a definite masterpeice that will never get old.

Definitely one of the best albums I own. Over 2 years after I posted in here and I still got this album on constant rotation.
