Nas - Stillmatic
 
http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B0...CLZZZZZZZ_.jpg
01 - Stillmatic (The Intro) - 5/5 [one of the highlights of nas career]
02 - Ether - 5/5
03 - Got Urself A... - 5/5
04 - Smoking - 3/5 [really out of place, boring beat]
05 - You're Da Man - 5/5 [classic]
06 - Rewind - 5/5
07 - One Mic - 5/5
08 - 2nd Childhood - 5/5 [as good as anything from Illmatic]
09 - Destroy & Rebuild - 4/5
10 - The Flyest (feat. AZ) - 5/5 [life's a bitch pt.2, not really as good though]
11 - Rule (feat. Amerie) - 3/5 [out of place, should have been scrapped]
12 - My Country (feat. Blitz) - 4/5
13 - What Goes Around - 5/5 [incredible track both lyrics & musically]
14 - Every Ghetto (feat. Millenium Thug) - 4.5/5 [almost based on lyrics alone]

Overall; 4.5/5 - could have been a 5/5 if he'd just scrap Smoking and Rule. At least he got rid of Braveheart Party which is a plus. One of Nas best albums though, lyrically it's hotter than he'd been in years before and lots of those tracks are classics that sounds as fresh today as when we first heard them.

Matter of fact he should have made it 10 songs just like "Illmatic" and it would actually be worthy of the title (2001-illmatic).

i re-made this thread with a poll instead since there wasn't a review-thread for Stillmatic before and I fucked up creating one last night. anyway I rate the album 4.5 but it's more 5 than 4.

4/5

Overrated. Great album, but far from a classic.

01 - Stillmatic (The Intro) - 5/5
02 - Ether - 4/5
03 - Got Urself A... - 3/5
04 - Smoking - 2/5 stupid ass lyrics, shitty beat
05 - You're Da Man - 5/5
06 - Rewind - 5/5
07 - One Mic - 5/5 lyrical peak
08 - 2nd Childhood - 5/5 SUPER CLASSIC IMO
09 - Destroy & Rebuild - 4/5
10 - The Flyest (feat. AZ) - 2/5 shitty track, straight up

A classic in my eyes...just a few shit tracks that I skip.

Near classic. I couldn't get enough of it when it first dropped. I actually just popped it in right now cuz I haven't listened to it in a long ass time.

PoisonousDarT36 12-12-2007 09:17 PM

4.5/5. The one classic track on here is One Mic, which is one of the best songs ever, lyrically it's ridiculous, Nas's delivery is his best ever on it, and the beat is perfect. Other amazing tracks are the intro, You're Da Man, What Goes Around and Every Ghetto. Ether is great but way overrated, because of some wack lines ("I rock hoes, y'all rock fellas") and blatant lies (36 in a karate class, tae bo ho=WACK). 2nd Childhood is great as well, as is My Country and Rule. This was a great album to resurrect Nas's career after the subpar Nastradamus, but it is not the classic some label it as. It is far below Illmatic, and a notch below It Was Written. It is on par with The Lost Tapes, and ahead of the rest of Nas's catalogue.

im with you homie, 3.75/5 for me though.

mastered by the same dude who did 36 chambers btw

J.T.S. 12-13-2007 10:12 AM

Masterpiece.

urbanlegend 12-17-2007 08:11 AM

Both this and God's Son were amazing albums 4.5/5. Way too many people shit on them and claim Nas has fallen off, but he's had 4-5 completely ill albums:

Illmatic, It Was Written, Stillmatic, and God's Son.

Tyler Durden 04-08-2008 11:03 AM

I thought I'd bump this cos I've got a question.

Voted Masterpiece cos its fantastic.

Anyway, my disc is scratched like hell, I want to put it on my iPod, will it be okay and not 'jumpy' when I copy it to my computer.

Hope someone can help.

01 - Stillmatic (The Intro) - 5/5 (dope, dope beat)
02 - Ether - 0/5 (wack beat, fails to diss jay-z)
03 - Got Urself A... - 5/5 (dope single and rhyme)
04 - Smoking - 2/5 (beat is pretty wack)
05 - You're Da Man - 5/5 (LP should have done all the beats)
06 - Rewind - 5/5 (yeah)
07 - One Mic - 3/5 (again pretty wack beat but i can zone to it if i hear it in the right context)
08 - 2nd Childhood - 5/5 (genius)
09 - Destroy & Rebuild - 4/5 (nice)
10 - The Flyest (feat. AZ) - 5/5 (nice soundscape and dope back and forth)
11 - Rule (feat. Amerie) - 3/5 (trying to repeat 'if i ruled the world', wack)
12 - My Country (feat. Blitz) - 1/5 (wack hook, beat etc)
13 - What Goes Around - 5/5 (One of Nas moments)
14 - Every Ghetto (feat. Millenium Thug) - 2/5 (beat stinks)

Only slightly better than I Am and Nastradamus

04 - Smoking - (4/5) Good track I dont know what people here are smokin
05 - You're Da Man -(5/5) Awesome
06 - Rewind -(5/5) Brillaint conceptually
07 - One Mic - (4/5) very well done
08 - 2nd Childhood - (5/5) Last real Nas/Preemo joint classic
09 - Destroy & Rebuild - (4.5/5) Cool track
10 - The Flyest (feat. AZ) - (5/5) AZ/Nas nuff said
11 - Rule (feat. Amerie) - (2.5/5) This 1 is lame

calling him faggot in several ways which is redundant and false is not going to win when jigga calls out facts like his poor career and wack albums and getting fucked on publishing.
