great album, nice lyrics & beats...


05-07-2007, 05:54 PM
ive just been listening to this over the past few days and only just realized how good it was. i gotta say theres not a bad track on there, the beats are dope and the lyrics are real as hell although they get a bit repetitive after a while though.

im thinking about coppin the cocoa brovaz album, anyone heard that?

05-07-2007, 06:08 PM
cocoa brovas albums are about the same... maybe not as good, but they still have some good beats and lyrics are same as usual...

Dah' Shinin' is a siiick LP... 2nd favorite LP outta BCC...

05-13-2007, 02:13 AM
i walk around town with the pound strapped down
thats only because its mad real in bucktown

this cd is the essence of classic 90s hip hop
bucktowns the state of mind that i'm trapped in..

05-14-2007, 01:50 PM
10, classic joints all the way through and of course dope production!

05-15-2007, 09:13 AM
This was my shit back in the day. Great, solid album...8.5/10.

05-15-2007, 05:41 PM
10/10 Brillaint record with classic production

top 3 for me greatest hip hop albums of all time

no question

05-15-2007, 11:34 PM
10/10 Classic

Thought every track was great except K.I.M. and Wipe Ya Mouf (but are still good). The only skip track for me was the PNC Intro.

09-17-2007, 05:10 PM
10/10 classic no doubt!

09-17-2007, 06:36 PM
The production is EXACTLY what I love to hear on a hip-hop record..classic shit.

09-17-2007, 07:22 PM

09-19-2007, 07:13 PM
Classic. [/fact]

My 2nd favorite BCC release, not one bad track.

09-20-2007, 07:54 AM
This may be my favourite BBC album, and in my top 10. Was just listening to it again, and realized how brilliant it is. Bucktown is one of my favourite hip hop songs ever, and Stand Strong, Sound Bwoy Burial, Hellucination & P.N.C are dope as fuck

9/10 - lyrically typical thugged out btc style, but soundwise... I dunno, falls behind Enta da Stage

10, because it is a timeless album that always somehow ends up in my normal musical rotation. Sound Bwoy Bureill gets me fuckin amped every time that first kick drum hits.

11-11-2007, 07:47 PM

Made Tek & Steel one of the top 5 duo's

Beatminerz at there best

A must have for any real hip hop hed

11-20-2007, 05:59 AM
10/10 def. my top 5 of all time. This is the da beatminerz truly at their best

11-20-2007, 08:23 AM
dont forget session at the doghilee or whatever, that joint is one of my favs

11-20-2007, 09:25 AM
Session At The Doghille = One of my favourite posse cuts EVER

11-22-2007, 10:42 AM
A 10...

Every time I play it, I play the entire album... The order of the tracks are perfect... The album flows well from beginning to end...

One of the best endings to an album too... I always liked how they play the PNC beat for the intro, then fade it out, and you're thinkin, "DAMN, they should've made a whole song with that beat!!!", then Steele says his tribute verse acapella for his friend, THEN the beat comes back on, song begins, and then it ends with Steele repeating his tribute verse which sounds even more powerful than it did before, and then beat fades out...

I LOVE that shit...

shit 10/10... it reminds me of Black Moon, lyrically and beat wise.

01-08-2008, 02:54 AM

Thats all i have to say.

01-08-2008, 11:14 PM
the most dopest solid album i ever heard, every track is unbelievably amazing 12/10 yeah thats how much i like it

-The A to the Z-
01-11-2008, 03:21 PM
Still prefer Nocturnal

Wipe ya Mouth-like a smoother 1995 version of Thug World :).
And if there were less references to...dicks...on the song, and if that chorus part was bit more hard hitting, the album would be a 9.2/10

02-07-2008, 06:12 PM
10/10. Classic. Amazing album. There's not a single track I can skip.

02-13-2008, 12:26 AM
imo classic

03-11-2008, 08:11 PM
this is just outside the top 10 albums of all time. such a classic. 4.5/5

07-19-2008, 07:12 PM
wontime has my favorite hook in any hip hop song ever

07-22-2008, 06:25 PM
The older, the better.
That album is pure Hip Hop.

04-07-2010, 09:03 PM

strong contender for BCC's illest album

It would have sucked for Smif N Wessun if they also got sued by Stephen King and Warner Brothers because they claimed that people were getting their l.p. confused with the novel and film.

10/10. The second greatest BCC album right behind Nocturnal.

04-23-2012, 04:26 PM
This one and Enta Da Stage stand tall above the rest...

04-23-2012, 10:17 PM
for me its the best and top 20 alltime

04-23-2012, 10:29 PM
Perfect album IMO. 10/10
