This album was a favorite of mine when it first came out. That was in 1995 when I was 10. Listening today, probably 12 years since I've heard it, I have been enlightened to a true masterpiece. Each song stands out from one another in a G-Funk plasterboard that mostly sounds sounds like classic rock songs if you could substitute the tuning for that a guitar led music. The lyrics are smart, and the listening road has no bumps.
