Not my favorite Herbie album but a stellar listen nonetheless. Funky and soulful, perfect playing by all involved.
Absolutely banging top-notch album. I always forget what a banger this one is, but it is something truly special.
Solid album - more background music for me than active listening. No doubt an excellent songwriter and an album I've revisited over the years but not a favorite. Some tracks are definite gems but some that are just kinda meh. I’d give 3.5 if I could.
Some fun, rocking moments but the tracks tend to blend together. Good for background rock music but nothing that really grabbed me and made me pay attention. Definitely nothing to complain about either, just nothing that wow'd me.
This is an entirely new one for me, I remember they had some radio hits but not much else… interested to hear this in its entirety. Will update once I’ve listened. Ok, so this had a few fun moments but overall, I was just hoping the end would hurry up and get there so I could leave my listening space for a snack. I don't know if it is bad but it definitely wasn't for me. I'm actually going to keep it on my saved albums list and give it another listen at another time - perhaps I was just in a pissy mood.
I can't believe this came out in '92, I was 11 and didn't first hear this 'til I was 15 but it takes me back -- only thing this listen was missing at 40 y/o was a fat blunt and a 40. Not going to lie, the real highlight to this album is Snoop. He's so on-point, I don't think many could touch his skill behind the mic. Dre's production is next level and his rap ability is by far at the best it ever was. This is some heavy-duty and dark content lyrically but feels fun, how else ya gonna get white kids like me to listen when they're not even driving age? Listening to this on my discman, hoping my parents didn't catch me. This is old school west coast hip hop at its' finest and some definite bangers. I’d give it a 3.5 if that was an option, but since it isn’t, it’ll get a 3.
First time listening, classic blues album.
