07-05-2006, 03:46 PM
J Dilla-one of the illest. It's a must have imo. 10/10

07-05-2006, 11:28 PM
he supposedly made 29 of the tracks in the hospital bed

07-05-2006, 11:50 PM
Definately a banger. Was lstening to this on my way to work tonight. Can't get enough of Stop. Wish that track was longer :(

Dilla lives.

That's just great album. Definately 10/10.
"Stop" is my favourite.

Album of the year, up there with Ghostdog Score, Endtroducing and Petestrumentals for best instrumental hip-hop album of all time.

Whats this mean^?

If you listen to them both at the same time, do they interact with each other?

I had this friend that had these CD's by this Band named Neurosis , and they did that. We hooked up two sound systems and played that shit together. It was dope.

ON the song "dont cry" , right at about 41 seconds, he flips the sample and it changes the cadence. That shit is ill. Sucks that Dilla is gone. He left alot of great work behind.

i think he meant that "Beat Kunducta" is another great instrumental album.

maybe i will try simultaneously playing them, doubt the are related though.

one is like 50 mins the other 40 mins.

broke n blue . that is the illest track with no rapper ever made yall

its great on that how he uses the vocal sample, getting what he wants out of it.

12-02-2006, 03:37 AM
my fav beat is "Donuts of the heart", the roots used it on their new album and made a great track out of it, but truly one of my favorite instrumental LPs of all time

RIP Jay Dee, died to young and a damn shame you had to go just days after this release

01-15-2007, 06:20 PM
damn, i'm listening to it again. best moment of the day so far... and i've been waiting until .... 00:19 to feel comfortable.

life's a bitch.

RIP Dilla. almost one year... damn time flies.

See I didnt like Donuts at first because it didnít sound like the Dilla I was used to, it was a radical departure from the production which I was used to. Had to listen to it as a clean slate and that was over a month after I first got it. Started to grow on me big time.

Then I checked for some of the samples and realised there were a ton of hidden messages in the album. I think Dilla got it spot on though with Donuts. Keep the instrumentals at 1 minutes 30 seconds, and put a load of them on there. Makes for a very interesting album. Thereís some sick shit on there like Airwork and Walkinonit (the part where the vocal comes in is mind blowing)

Itís a 4.5mic album for me at this point.

01-23-2007, 01:38 PM
waves and lightworks...thats my shit.

Future hip hop classic. I know dudes are gonna say it's to early to say that but I haven't liked an album this much since supreme.

he is a fuckin' legend, one love to J Dilla, god bless.

This album is a masterpiece

01-24-2007, 02:18 PM
I cant listen to a instrumental album. I flicked through it, nice beats.

02-10-2007, 02:54 PM
9 for jay dee. dilla lives.

07-15-2007, 10:08 AM
Would have given this 12 if it was an option. Just put on my headphones close my eyes and kinda float (big joint helps).
