Product Description

Despite the number of guests on hand, Dr. Dre's decade-/century-/millennium-ending sequel to The Chronic is, like its predecessor, less a stack of posse cuts and more an elegantly seamless work from West Coast hip-hop's premier auteur. Deliberately cinematic in everything from its mix of moods to dramatic musical surges, 2001 is Dre's assessment of the gangsta life in medium shots. No longer fully immersed in violence and random sex, yet aware of their attraction, he often lets his guests blow steam about whatever is on their minds. When he takes stock of gangbanging circa late 1999, though, he drops his neutral tone; he even provides another half-joking but stern warning to protégé Eminem on "What's the Difference". Between his discovery of Slim Shady, visits from old pal Snoop Dogg, and, most of all, the masterful sound and flow of this CD, Dre should shut down all talk of his supposed irrelevance. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Classic!!! 28 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
This ablum has got to be the best album that I own, It has everything an album needs to be a classic. All of the tracks are so different and the production on the album is second to none. I have just attempted to write my favourite track's but decided against it because I would just be writing the whole playlist!!! This album is essential for any Hip-Hop fan. But beware, if you will be offended by VERY bad language and some quite gritty, leaving nothing to the imagination lyrics-this isn't for you!!

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT WESTCOAST ALBUM 30 Jan 2006
By chris
Format:Audio CD
this album brilliant, dr dre proving he really is the best producer ever, even though dr dre doesnt write his own lyrics, they are written by everyone on 2001 who is not dr dre, and dr dre only does 2 songs by himself without any guest appearances, the production is what really stands out, every beat is banging, and varied, there are some relaxed beats which u can just listen to, and club beats which get you bouncing, dr dre delivers his trademark g-funk production on this, and even though people think the chronic stands out as dr dres best, i think this is better than the chronic, there are some really good guests on it such as xzibit, eminem, snoop dogg and hitman, and even though the subject matter is noraml rap topics, this is a great album to dance to at any party or club and overall this is a great album any rap fan should get,

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 29 Sep 2005
By u29rm4
Format:Audio CD
This album is probably one of my favorite rap albums along with doggystyle, the chronic and 2pac greatest hits. The production is top notch and the beats are very catchy. Still dre has a very catchy beat with good lyrics and is to show people that dre is back. if you liked the chronic you will like this. He has also got heaps of great rappers on here such as snoop dogg, nate dogg, eminem, kurupt etc. A+++++++++++++++++++

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr, Dr I wasnt feelin well til I heard this. 16 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
After reading some of the reviews of this amazing album, I thought I had to add my 2 cents worth. People seem to be complaining that Dre doesn't appear on the allbum as much as he should, that's because he's a Rap Producer, not Rap Artist. Do these same people ask why Quentin Tarantino desn't appear in more of his movies? Let him do what he does better than most others, from behind the scenes. Other complaints seem to surround Dre not having the same views as he did on Straight Outta Compton or The Chronic, he's moved on since then, The mans a multi millionaire now, how could he still rap about how hard life is for him as a Black American. In my opinion this album is amazing, so many classic tracks, every album has the odd tune that doesn't appeal to all, but in my opinion this is one of the best Rap albums of all time. If you havn't got it yet, what you waiting for.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING! 21 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Anyone who doesn't own this album doesn't know what they are missing. Dre has made a dramatic comeback with this huge album, all tracks are excellent with a beat that you'll never forget, the lyrics are soo true and you can really relat to them. Dre, Snoop Dogg and all of the others on this album deserve a medal for all their hard work. It was definitely worth it! For once this is actually quality music from artists with real talent! Hopefully this will continue to make an impact on music this century! I couldn't live without this album! My favourite tracks are "The Watcher", "F**k You", "Still Dre", "Forgot About Dre" and "Message." Those are just a few of my fav.s and the rest of the album is just as good! Definitely the best album ever! And seeing as I wasn't a huge fan of R&B and rap, this has had an amazing effect on me! Now I can't get enough of it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still D.R.E ! 17 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
Dre is back , with one of the best comeback albums ever !After the phenominal success of 'The Chronic ,' Dre must have had a few headaches , pondering over how he could come back with an equally satisfying and great hip hop album and believe me , those headaches were worth it !
This is a classsic album , not quite as classic as the chronic , but any album from Dre featuring the likes of Snoop Dogg , Eminem , Xzibit , Mary J. Blige , Nate Dogg and brilliant , slick and skilled production from Mel Man and Dre himself , with killer rhymes and beats has got to be good right ?
RIGHT !The best , standout songs on this album are the brilliant songs featuring Snoop Dogg which are 'Still D.R.E' , a classic westcoast anthem with a great video to go with it and 'Next Episode' feat a guest appearance from Nate Dogg . This has a very catchy and original beat with tight lyrics from Dre and the Dogg's .
Also , the songs feat Eminem are very good , being 'forgot about Dre' , with its slick , 'G-funk'backing and lyrics fronting haters such as Eezie E .Whats the difference is also good , with a pounding beat sampled by Sean Paul and Blu Cantrells 'breathe.' The most talked about and famous song fromm the album 'xxplosive' certainly lives up to the hype and is a very strong standout song on first listen . Despite its shortness in length , lets get high is brilliant and at times even makes me laugh . The watcher is a very good introductary song as is the 'intro' feat Xzibit which seems oddly 'relevant' and is also funny . 'Bang Bang'is also one of my favourites which fortuneately DOES NOT sample Nancy Sinatras song of the same title . This shows Dre's originality ! The skits are slightly annoying and some unnecessary but are funny and enjoyable on first listen .

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing pressing, stick with the CD.
From the second the stylus touches down the poor quality of the vinyl is evident, background noise is very, very obvious. Read more
