Product Description

LL Cool J may have progressed from "future of the funk" to hip-hop icon, but he's still dropping enjoyable sets of sensual pop hip-hop. 10, the veteran artist's appropriately titled 10th release, is by no means groundbreaking, but is nevertheless a welcomed arrival for faithful fans. By now, backers don't expect cutting-edge music from LL. His production team, which include the Neptunes, DJ S&S, and Amen Ra, layer catchy melodies with laid-back drum patterns and familiar samples. Featuring LL's warm, women-friendly lyrics, a guest appearance by brainy R&B beauty du jour Amerie, and the thoroughly recognisable sample of "Rising to the Top", "Paradise" best exemplifies the artist's patented style. Interview segments with upstart hip-hopper Free are interspersed through the disc, offering an up-close-and-personal look at the legend and his legacy. --Rebecca Levine

5.0 out of 5 stars TOO Good!!! 27 Oct 2002
Format:Audio CD
LL Cool J is one of hip-hop's living legends, a link back to the days of Kangols, shell-toes, and bugged-out breakbeats. But LL is also a survivor, and unlike a lot of old school cats, he's still viable in the commercial marketplace, as the recent radio success of "Love U Better" proves.
"Love U" is the lead single from LL's latest release, the aptly named 10 -- which is not only his tenth album, but his tenth album for Def Jam; fulfilling a contract he signed with the label 18 years ago at the tender age of 16. Appropriately, 10 is a return to form for LL (especially after the ill-received combativeness of 2000's The G.O.A.T.), and the album finds him doing what he does best: Making relaxed, radio-friendly jams while giving the ladies a little something extra.
He gets help from the Neptunes on both scores here, as the Virginia super-producers contribute five out of the album's 14 tracks. Aside from "Love U," Chad and Pharell supply beats for the smoothed out, Kandace Love-graced "Amazing," the Marc Dorsey-backed love jam "U Should," the club banger "Clockin' G's," and the knuckleheaded old school goof, "Niggy Niggy Nuts." Longtime LL collaborators the Trackmasters get their chance in the producer's chair, too, providing the raw material for LL to spit over on "Mirror Mirror" and "Born to Love You."
LL also gets love from some old friends, too, including P. Diddy on "After School," Amerie on "Paradise," and Dru Hill on LL's touching tribute to the grandmother that raised him, "Big Mama (Unconditional Love)." But for all the producers, guests, and collaborations, 10 is all about LL, and he shines the brightest on solo tracks such as the club banger "Fa Ha" and the sexxxed-up "Lollipop." 10 may not break any new ground for Mr. Smith, but it sure is nice having him back again.
Great album 5 out of 5!

3.0 out of 5 stars LL Cool J - 10 17 July 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Before any word on the music, much respect to LL, who took on board the challenge from someone or other and agreed not to use any profanity on this record. The CD certainly doesn't miss or need this as it is a very laid back, summery, happy effort.
'Luv U Better' is probably my all time favourite Neptunes production and tracks by Pharrel and co are sprinkled all over this album. It is in some ways sad to see someone who was once such a pioneering force in this genre following such a trend. On the other hand, 'Luv U Better' is a brilliant track that sounds nothing like the other Neptunes tracks that were all over the radio at this time. 'Paradise' (prod. Trackmasters) featuring Amerie is a good song, but in all fairness its probably too happy and could be compared to a Spice Girls beat! 'Clockin' G's' (prod. Neptunes)is a good club track.
Not a classic by any stretch of the imagination but its a good lyrical performance by a man who is still one of the best in the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars 10 8 Nov 2002
By Mark
Format:Audio CD
LL proves he's still one of the best and most respected icons in the hip hop world, coming along way from his debut album 10 offers a mixture of ferociously delivered lyrics, most noticable in "Ten Million Stars" which is done in a Jay-Z takeover style,and much softer ballads that have the potential to make you cry, like big momma with K-ci and Jo-Jo's vocal talents on the song could you expect anything but perfection. with a host of guest appearences from artists including P.diddy and amerie 10 is a must have for all hip hop fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars '10' impresses......bring on '11'!! 22 Oct 2002
By "j_aze"
Format:Audio CD
To keep up the standards set by his last album, 'The GOAT', LL Cool J needed to prouduce a CD full of quality material and he does not fail to do so! '10' is a mix of RnB and hip-hop/rap which is a change from his normal mainstream hip-hop vibe. It features the smash hit 'luv u better' along with other good songs such as 'paradise', 'amazin' which introduces the voice of Kandice Love to the hip-hop world and P.Diddys vocals in 'after school' is sure to make it a future hit! Some slow songs such as 'lollipop' and 'mirror mirror' are also featured. To finish off the album, LL Cool J dedicates his song 'big mama' to all the grandmas in the world and in my books this is up there with the best LL Cool J songs of all time.
Fans will not be left disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars LL Cool J back with a bang 22 Oct 2002
By Alex L
Format:Audio CD
Ok ok first off if you like LL Cool J then you will buy this whatever i say but i aim to reach people like me that remember a few good songs and seen him in movies and have never bought a LL Cool J album before.
This album is hot it has great tunes including Luv U Better and Amazin'. A great tune with P.diddy that reminds me of a certain Usher song.
All i would say is this is not the best album you can buy but it has at least 6 songs that you will love and that is good for a Album these days.
If like me you like Dru Hill then there is a great slow song called Big Mama (Unconditional Love) which is about LL Cool J's nan.
If you like Luv U Better, Doin It, Loungin' you will like this album if not there is plenty more to choose from !!

4.0 out of 5 stars GOAT - still the greatest of all time? 21 Oct 2002
By "j_aze"
Format:Audio CD
To keep up the standards of his last album, "The GOAT", LL Cool J needed to deliver an album full of quality material, and he does not fail to do so. The tracks all seem to have catchy beats and choruses which you will find stick in your head. "Ten" features the smash hit "luv u better" plus "amazing" which introduces the voice of Kandice Love to the hip hop world and P.Diddys vocals in "after school" are sure to make it a future hit! "big mama" which is dedictaed to all the grandmas in the world is a strong finish to the album and is a track which i rank as one of the best LL Cool J's songs of all time.
If you are a fan of LL cool J.....this will not disappoint!
