Itís not as good as GFunk Era, All Eyez On Me, Compton, and Chronicóbut even Sccit and Siavash wouldnít make that claim, so Iím not sure what point you are trying to make.

I was reviewing it in light of it being a new RBX album produced by Sccit and Saivash.  I wasnít comparing it to PACís 7 Day Theory.

My point being is that you haven't liked any new music and are 'stuck in 96'.  Yet one of our members here works on an album, which clearly has more of a modern sound, and you review it as a classic with you liking nearly every single song.  Just seems a little....how do the kids say it, sus?

Don't get me wrong, major props to Sccit for doing that.  I'm not taking anything away from that accomplishment.  Something i could never do, amazing work and we should all try to support projects like this if we're feeling the music. 

But....let's also not set people up for disappointment by bigging this up like it's the second coming of doggystyle.  It's a cool little album, nice that RBX got his chance to shine again, he is much overlooked in history.  And neat that one of our own had some involvement in it.  But it's not something that's going to be in my regular rotation years from now like the classics are.  Again, though, opinions are different for everyone.  If you truly felt your review is accurate, and unbiased, that's great.  That's why i was asking for more clarification for your review to make sure it wasn't simply coming across as 'doing a favor for your homie' here by rating the album unbelievably high to try to increase sales, because that's how it initially read to me.  And the fact that you revised your initial review, removing the word 'classic', tells me that my inquiry into your review does have some merit.

damn i see some haters in here Ö 2 cats who didnít even listen to the album forced infinite to change him labeling it a classic

they put more energy into that than actually taking the time to check the music first

 :dead:

And infinite, shame on you for cavin in to the peer pressureÖ we finally gave RBX his magnum opus. feel free to call that his classic wit ya chin up high instead of lettin these cats who didnít even support it talk u outa your review

No doubt, I think classic is a badge of honour that comes with time, collectively.

Infinite did do a good of dissecting it. 

Sccit/Siavash have yall sent the album to other hiphopsites or music sites in general, for a review?

we havenít submitted it, but allhiphop called it a masterpiece

Itís not hatred bro. One doesnít need to listen to it to know that this is not a classic - not yet. I have no doubt that itís masterpiece on the other hand.
Even Chronic needed more time to ba called classic so donít expect RBX produced by you guys will chamge it.
RBX Files was, is, and will be his best album imo.

but that was infinites raw reaction in real time. and others have said the same .. classic is subjective .. thatís what he felt and u canít tell someone what to feel personally .. especially regarding something u didnít listen to

what might be classic to u may be shit to someone else .. the definition of classic can vary from person to person

Can you break down your verse in The Moon?  This is one if my favouritesÖ turkish delight and the masia (probably not pronuncing it right).  The moon resets the first of the month? 

Concept? Meaning?  Influence?

glad u asked

in the Gregorian calendar the months are arbitrary, however in Judaism the moon holds a deeper meaning as its responsible for bringing in the new month.. so every 1st of the month is ushered in with a new moon. which also gives us a chance to start fresh on rosh chodesh (the 1st), as the renewal of a moon coincides with the renewal of ones energy.

I like the album Iíve listened to it 4 times now since Friday and about to bump it againItís really good and the mastering is brilliant the way it sounds on my Fiio M7. To me itís an album you can play from start to finish with no skips. Befoe, I  listened to the three singles on YouTube whilst working at home and on the PC speakers and they sound completely different to me with headphones on now and sound so much better, I always like it when you hear new things you didnít realise were on there. Well done guys on a great album.

Same thing with Islam following the Lunar Calendar.  For example, it is Ramadan now and the month of Ramadan is a lunar month it starts with the new moon, full moon in the middle of the month day 15 and then disapearing moon at the end of the month day 30

...so anyway I mostly got where you were going with the verse but I thought the Turkish thing was maybe like mentioning how Palestine had changed hands over the centuries but I was just vibing not like analyzing the lyrics like that and I've only had 2 full listens front to back no skips so don't bust my balls if I was way off

Nice review, yeah, I'm overseas in the Arab Gulf so I only have the digital copy for now, I know last time ya'll had it mastered by Big Bass Garnder with Torpor, the quality on this one with production, mix, mastering seemed top notch, well done
