    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 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...

    Default Busta Rhymes - The Big Bang

    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

    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.
