review: dr dre 2001
« on: May 24, 2001, 04:01:11 PM »

intro nothin special
the watcher most underated track on album, only solo, extreme dopeness, GREATTT 5+
fuck u-great g funk beat snoop and devin are tight, dres verse lacks, ncie chorus 5+
still dre-first single really good, love it 5
xxplosive-everyone hates kurupt on this, he cusses like 203480390 times, song is still better than average, hittman sings, nate brings this up severly 4
whats the difference-one of my favorites, xzibit rips it, em rips it, dre tells a cool story about eazy and doc, dope beat 5
bar skit-bla
light speed-very futuristic beat, i luv it, dope song 4.5
forgot about dre- CLASSIC, i dont care if trl played it out, its very dope, 5+++
next episode-my personal fav from the album, very nice, i wish i never heard tashs song fallin off, now i know that dre just stole this beat basically..but still great song 5+
lets get high-alot of peoples less fav on album, but its still very good..kurupt comes dope..hittman mrs roq and dre too nice beat 4
bitch niggaz-tooooo slow for me, but still a good song 3.5
car bomb-skit
murder ink-extreme dopenes, voices are changed with some machine hittman and roq tear it up over this halloween sampled beat  4.6
eddie skitthing
la niggaz-very good sog, all the rappers come tight, expecially xzibit and king t, defari too..very unique and tight beat 5
pause 4 porno hahahaha
hos a housewife-good song, too bad its on kurupt album too, 4.5
ackrite-i like this beat, fits hittman perfectly, i dig this classic 5
bang bang-extreme dope beat again, this  is amazing i luv this....one of the better songs to me, cool chorus but it gets old 5
the message-nice beat, not by dre though, this is dedicated to his brother, cool song 4

overall this album is a classic fa sho. i dont think its better than the chronic, but i think it is close, it will change rap, and has started with the melodies and instruments used alot such as the clean guitar...dre is so important to rap and i cant wait for detox....

beats: 10 out of 5 (makes up for lyrics)
lyrics: 3 out of 5
originality: 7 out of 5


best songs:
watcher still dre
whats the difference
forgot about dre
next episode
la niggaz
fuck u

worst song:
bitch niggaz
So much style back at it again

Here's my evaluation homie...

Classic Songs (5/5):  "Still DRE", "Forgot About Dre"

Least Favorite Tracks:  "Let's Get High" & Bitch Niggaz"

Overall Rating...9.5/10

Superior production on both Dre's & Mel-Man's parts.

yo narrator you skiped "big egos" in your review. I like everything on there except light speed. I would give it a 9.5. Lets get high is a good party song. Gotta have the party song.   However it doesn't fit in, and would probably do better off the album. You guys probably just hate bitch niggaz cause the beat was always on at dre2001.com. I swear it made me not want to listen to that song anymore.

Great review except I disagree with you about Bitch Niggaz. Light Speed was the worst track in my opinion. Other than that classic album.

I have to disagree with y'all on bitch niggaz, I find that shit tight, it's straight laid back hard gangsta
ass shit

and the beat really fits the lyrics

overall this album is IMO the second greatest rap album ever

Niggas don't fight no more!
before hip hop was all about drama
anything for a dollar before Kane fucked Madona
Maintain and stayed bent like a comma
Just me and my bottle
we shall lead not follow
Emcees be full of shit
but they style be hollow.

Axually I think the Album is one of the dopest albumz ever...

Personally I think "forgot about Dre " and "what's the difference"is fuckin brilliant, but it doesn't fit in the Album...

I love the trax "" bitch Niggaz" to chill
                    "" Murder Ink " Fuckin wicked beat
                    "" Fuck you" Snoops da bomb in that track

I duno I love it all

I'd give this 4 mics. some of the album can get old, but tracks like xxxplosive (greatest beat on album), the watcher, bang bang, and bitch ni**az make it a high quality album.

aight man you've been pissin me off with your antics ever since i got here. Please cut this shit cuz im just here to post my opinion. I don't see what's funny with my response to this post, dre2001 is a fine cd but it ain't no where near a classic. Again, I ain't tryin to start shit cuz i dont want to fuck up this board with that garbage.

yo nik, you and xz are both my homies, and he's just posting his opinion it's like my thang with that other dude who couldn't except my opinion on Dirty i don't like them, xz isn't feeling the same stuff as you ....DEAL WITH IT i mean damn NIK you can be cool but you can REALLY act like dick hole sometimes , just chill and don't get all riled up just cuz he don't think 2001 is a classic, it's not like he's being buligerantly biased and saying "i don't like this album becuase dre is fat"....he has a logical reason for not feeling it as much as you he just doesn't feel it as much as others, that's HIS opinion

PEACE...and i mean that y'all

i think those are some fair reviews. but  first of all dre DID NOT steal anything from tash. enuff said. and we don't think that this album is a classic. we believe we can do so much better. but we were extremely happy with the result. it may be a classic to some of you and it probably should be from a fan's point of view. its not perfect but it was the best rap release in 99. and to be fair, the production style on 2001 was primitive. by that i mean it was a very tough style to work with. with the exeption of 2 or 3 samples everything was created from thin air using real musical instruments. the methods of creating totally original productions are impossible to perfect right away. the production on 2001 was as good as possible at that point in time. now that dre has been working on this style for a few years, the sounds, the layering, the effects,the melodies and the total process is slowly being perfected by dre, mel-man,and the great musicians creating this. and we will continue to evolve this style and make it better and more original each time out. by the time detox rolls around then we have a real shot at creating a true classic. if we don't do it before with rakim. when 2001 came out a lot of people didn't think it would change the sound of hip hop like the chronic. but now this style of production is being used by a ton of producers. and a lot of people like fred wreckand others are putting out some dope, dope music. so as the competition and in some cases even the family sort of catches up its time for our camp to add some new instruments and innovations and change the game ONCE AGAIN. peace.

You don't gotta get mad at him, it's his opinion. It would be different if you made the album and he said that but you are mad because he criticised a person's album that you don't even really know in real life. (well you might, I know you got connections)

kinda... both sampled the same song.. and Tash sampled it first.

David McCallum - The Edge (produced by the legendary david axelrod)

i posted a quote from an interview with axelrod praising Dre's vision in the way he used that sample on that song from 'big daddy' magazine

I'll point out the classics, in my opinion:

"Still DRE"
"Forgot About Dre"
"The Next Episode"

I think all three singles were the classics...the rest nuttin below a 3.5...mostly 4 & 4.5's.

Like the guy who got dissed earlier I wasn't really feeling this album as much as the rest of you. I can listen from 1-12 with no problem but after that there aren't really any songs that are that good. I would take the original Chronic over this no problem, that had loads of 5/5 tracks whereas 2001 has two or three in Next Episode, Still Dre and Whats The Difference. There wasn't enough Snoop or other DPG members on this album and some of the rappers on this album really suck. Out of five I would probably give this album a 3.75 or 4 but certainly nothing above that and in my opinion it definately wasn't a classic.
