"yeah tbh i cant help but feel everyone is overrating this because its not a piece of shit like Relapse"
That's probably true... Then again this is sputnik so people are also probably just overrating it because it's an album.
I do really enjoy this though. May end up at a 3.5 or so. And yeah, I really feel like Dre being on this more (not just adding production but sort of helping out in the whole creation of it) would have made it much better. I feel like he would've known that some of these hooks are just too shitty to be acceptable.
What's he doing now anyways? Is he really working on Detox? I would expect Dre to drop anything he's doing to work with Em, though maybe he lost faith too.
Awesome review BTW.
