I have been eagerly awaiting this album so much so that I have spent my entire morning listening to this album (when i should have been working!) I am pleased to say it was well worth it. As advertised this album is Snoop going back to his G-Funk roots but the album still has many surprises. You can really feel that Snoop has worked hard on this project and tested out many new rifts and collaborations. Snoop is one of the few artists who can provide one album with so many different flavours on it that you find yourself wishing there were more tracks!! The final song 'Conversations' (with Stevie Wonder) puts Stevie's voice in a place where you would never expect it and it works so well. 'Imagine' (with Dr. Dre and D'Angelo) is a moving song and it made me stop what i was doing to concentrate on the lyrics. With perfect performances from Akon, R Kelly, Damien Marley, B-Real, Goldie Loc (to name only a few), each song really is a hit! I could analyse each track for hours but I would run out of space!! All I will say is that you HAVE to own this album. All Snoop fans will lap it up and I think he is going to appeal to an even wider audience with this album as there really is something on there for everyone's taste. The hard work and dedication put into this album really shows. Maybe he should have called this one THE MASTERPEICE?!
