dope album
good production, busta comes correct with nice lyrics and flow
only 5 beats out of 15 from Dr. Dre, that's the problem for me
with 3-4 others tracks from Dre, the album would have been WOW
but for me it's not his best since The Coming, When Disaster Strikes is better
as i said, dope album only 3 tracks that i don't really like because of the beat :

In the ghetto
Get Down
I'll Do It All

8.5/10. Really like this album. I've always liked Busta but some of his shit is wack sometimes. He definitely is back with this album. Nice production some nice guest spots (Stevie Wonder, Raekwon, Q-Tip). A couple weak tracks to get the LP on the radio but other than that its a banger. Busta really benefited from his move to Aftermath.

Favorites: Can't Hold the Torch (favorite track), New York Shit, Goldmine, Get You Some, Touch It, Don't Get Carried Away.

First listen...

1. Get You Some - 8/10 - Pretty decent song. Definate headnodder.
2. Touch It - 10/10 - Club joint of the year
3. How We Do It Over Here - 6/10 - Kinda shit beat and missy sounds like crap on it.
4. New York Shit - 10/10 - Awesome! Banger
5. Been Through The Storm - 9/10 - WOW! Banger
6. In The Ghetto - 10/10 - Holyshit! Banger
7. Cocaina - 9/10 - JEEBUS! Another Banger
8. You Cant Hold The Torch - Chill song, Tip and Bus back and forth spreading some truth about these new hiphop cats
9. Goldmine - 10/10 - DEN-DENENE!
10. I love my bitch - 5/10 - WHY!? I HATE THIS SONG
11. Dont Get Carried Away - 5/10 - Garbage ass beat!
12. Theyre Out to Get Me - 7/10 - Meh... its alright
13. Get Down - 7/10 - A beat with some nice bump but gets boring
14. Ill Do It All - 9/10 - Beautiful beat here. Nice love jam!
15. Legend Of The Falloffs - 8/10 - cool sombre type joint to end the album off.


I give the album an 8/10

Wheres Your Money and Ill Hurt You would have pushed this album to album of the year status.

Definately an album thats gonna last me through the summer. Some joints longer.

There's another version of "Get Carried Away" that's REAL REAL REAL dope...I was fuckin' pissed that it didn't make the album...

Dr Zayus
06-13-2006, 09:36 PM
That's not "Don't Get Carried Away", that's "Rough Around The Edges" and it's produced by Hi-Tek, probably gonna be on Hi-Teknology 2

By the way, Don't Get Carried Away has a garbage beat? you're joking, that shit was incredible.

Spectrum7glr
06-13-2006, 10:30 PM
I agree that Dre beat is fire and Nas spit mad shit

that shit was fiiyaaaaaaaaaaah,real grimy shit!

I haven't liked Busta Rhymes since Anarchy album. He makes too many mainstream songs and not enough hardcore songs.

i can sort of see their point, but its definetly an improvement on his last 5 albums
their usually on point with their reviews, but i disagree with this one

'legend of the fall offs' is fuckin incredible, on some grim reaper type shit, also ill that dr dre used the sound of a shovel diggin a grave for the percussion

hopefully this is the start of a long lasting and prosperous future for busta on aftermath, but well see how the sales are next week

hearin q-tip on this shit has got me fiendin for some new shit from him (in atcq tho)

the way dilla hooked up that beat was like an ill flip of 'lyrics to go'

i think this is a dope album and i mean his last cd was aight but couple weak tracks and i think he did benifit from going to aftermath but theres no flipmode squad track they've been on every lp he's done its just odd without them on here i'm a give it 8/10 favorite tracks:

goldmine
legends fall off
NY Shit
don't get carried away
you can't carry the torch

Definitive X
06-15-2006, 04:44 PM
I thought the "Cocaina" beat was so so SO dope...if that's the vibe Dre brings to OB4CL 2, it's gon' be a SLAMMIN' album...

Yo I disliked this album. Lyrically, Busta didn't fell off so deeply... But when it comes to flow, man, it ain't that busta back in '98 on "Gimme Some More" or in '96 on "Woo Hah", he doesn't shout anymore, he doesn't do his mad tounge twists anymore. On most songs he reminded me on 50 Cent on "Outta Control". Quite tired. And monotonous, compared to earlier Busta shit.
Best song lyrically: "Legend of the Fall Offs"

Productionally, album is pointless. I rarely heard so un-cohesive album.
Dr. Dre is here on his worst. That two songs, "Get You Some" and "How We Do It Over Here" are baddest Dre beat I ever heard. That hollered-out song "Touch It" I didn't like too, it was too empty, as boring as some old school joints. "New York Shit" is something different, I fucking hate that beat, but I can't kick it out of my head.
Best song productionally: "Don't Get Carried Away"... interesting, made by same Dre that fucked up that two songs...

Overall, 2/5. Weak and... shapeless, that's the right word.

lol

big bang is a good album imo
i realized 5 years ago that busta had changed
this doesnt make the album bad tho, just different
it definetly has good production and busta has made hisa most lyrical album with this

07-28-2006, 08:41 PM
I think it is a good album, its his most complete album where he demonstrates his many personalities. I do miss his old shit, his flows were so fluent. But now i just think he wants u to hear what he's saying so he's comin at u with it. In every Busta verse he brings it, really doesn't seem like he takes off on songs at all. There was so many different songs that could have been on this album but he went with those 15. I wouldn't say it is his greatest album but nonetheless its a good one.

I liked Legend Of The Fall Offs, Don't Get Carried Away and Been Through The Storm... The Rest was mediocre at best =)

i think the album deserved 4 mics. they shudhave included "get your money", "ill hurt u", "ping" and the other song with Nas.

busta did change but he still is better than 90% of the shit out ther so its not amazing i give it 7.5/10. But we wont have to see the damn Big Bang shirts on Busta anymore. It is a top 10 album of the year maybe top 5 has some replay value. But I cant stand the song "I Love my Bitch" it had me sayin stfu.

CharlesJones

This album was nothing special. I wasn't feeling most of the songs. What's so tight about New York Shit song? That song is terrible and i can't believe DJ Scratch produced that. He usually makes better beats than that. I didn't even recognize Stevie Wonder's voice on Been Through The Storm song. It sounded like his voice got deeper. I was surprised he got Rick James to appear on In The Ghetto song.

CharlesJones
10-20-2006, 04:08 PM
Oh i forgot. I like the song with QTip. I think it's called The Game Has Changed. That sample on that song is the same sample A Tribe Called Quest used on Lyrics To Go song.

I still can't get into this album, He chopped his hair and changed his rapping style too.

I want at least 2 crazy tracks on a Busta Album, "Break yo Neck bitch!"

Iv'e always respected Busta bt never been compelled to buy any of his CD's till this one dropped. Something about cuttin his hair, changin' his style and gettin pumped up. Glad I did, I love this CD. It isn't a classic but I rarely skip a track. Also, this has pushed me into checkin out some of his back catologue. Although I won't argue with those that prefer his older albums, I find it easier to get with this new calmer, darker Busta Rhymes. I hope that his leaving Aftermath doesnt mean he reverts to his old style.
7.5/10
