5.0 out of 5 stars A real 90s feel 23 Aug 2012
By Alize
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After buying several albums by Nas,and being a huge fan,i thought it was necessery to buy this album,simply because of his amazing capability to tell stories,and phenomenal lyrical skills.

This album has a more mature feel to it-after all,Nas is no longer that young 17 year old boy running around Queensbridge: he is a man now,with children and a life of his own.This album paints that picture vividly:whilst he still speaks about issues that happen in the projects,in songs such as "A Queens Story" and "Accidental Murders",he speaks about his place as a Father, on "Daughters" and about his high position on life on "The Don".
The collaberations are all really good on this,i especially love the Mary J Blige and Amy Winehouse collaberations,and despite not being a fan of Rick Ross he was pretty good on his collaberation here on "Accidental Murders".

Basically,this album is very varied in the material it contains:Nas speaks about a wide range of subjects,and the lyrical skill on all is brilliant.The production is wonderful too,it does not sound like computer produced beats like most things these days,there are actual instruments,which is great,and adds to the atmosphere throughout the album.
The album has a real 90s feel to it,it almost feels like Illmatic but told from a man`s perspective,instead of a boy.The album has a slightly "raw" feel to it,even though Nas has been in the game well over a decade now.
If you love Nas,Hip-Hop,or lyrical story telling in general,buy this album:you will not regret it.

The production,lyrics,and story telling all paint an amazing picture.Nas was at his best in Illmatic:i think he has got it back,and can retain his title as one of the Greatest of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chilled and contented 19 July 2012
Format:Audio CD
The phrases 'return to form' and 'his best since Illmatic' have become reviewer cliches, churned out at the release of every new Nas album for at least the last ten years. They invariably lead to disappointment; no Nas albums have been overtly bad, but few have lived up to the golden promises of critics. Mostly they have been decent LPs with a few standout tracks.

Here, we finally get a payoff. A coherent, consistent masterpiece of a record, where Nas' unquestioned talent for lyrics and flow is finally matched by some fantastic beats. Varied beats too, with bombastic orchestral productions on 'No Introduction' and 'Back When' meshing side by side with jazzy instrumentation on 'Stay' and 'Cherry Wine', the latter containing a masterful vocal turn by the late Amy Winehouse. There's also hip hop bangers in the form of 'The Don' and 'Accident Murderers', 90s sounding throwbacks including the Mary J Blige collaboration 'Reach Out'm and a whole lot of stuff in between.

It's hard for an album to contain such variety whilst still moulding together as a whole, but 'Life Is Good' manages that, and its mostly due to Nas himself. He sounds relaxed, contented, not dumbing down the intricacy or lofty nature of his raps but delivering it in a chilled way. It complements the production, and it's such a pleasure to listen to a Nas album and find yourself nodding and smiling along. It's that sort of record; impactful without being too heavy, nostalgic without living in the past and modern sounding while staying timeless. Definitely a return to form. Maybe his best since Illmatic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hip Hop is evolving and moving up a class! 19 July 2012
Format:Audio CD
Lyrical content ridiculously world class, instrumentals just like some of rick ross's instrumental containing a lot more instruments saxos and trumpets and violins, Hip Hop is evolving a lot more classic sounds in which an older generation can appreciate, content is diverse and Nas goes through his range like no other rapper on this planet. Unlike Eminems albums every track is different and the tone and setting is very different. Nas came though on this album and it surpasses his last album and stillmatic.

Infact it sounds like an underground album but because its Nas it can be widely accepted as mainstream. I like how Nas refuses to deviate from his roots and style and knowingly confident that people will still listen as he has that solid fanbase. Ill be blazing this from the car. Im Impressed, Hip Hop was dead for a long time.

Can we say its revived??? I think it can only be truly revived with this genius of a talent in Nasir we trust!

Ps Hip Hop instrumentals these days, people always turn their heads when they hear the new beats being produced these days played out loud. I like the new sounds the jazzed up saxoed beats with bass. Feels like evolution of Hip Hop. More soul more personality, less nonsensical thumping....More humanity on the tracks.......Will a new fanbase emerge with these new beats combined with lyricists like Nas?

Get the Deluxe edition featuring 18 tracks. One of the best songs is not on the album. Its called "Trust" and "World is an addiction" is a great track. "A queens story" amazing...."No introduction" great way to start

Great album go get it! Nas never retire! Legend

Nas best work since illmatic.
For someone who been in the scene for 20 years this album has surprised me, easily the best all round album from nas since his first. There is only one real skip track for me but that is only because I literally cant relate to it at all but it still has solid production.
It is perhaps missing the massive tracks like "made you look" off gods son or "thieves theme" from streets disciple but it is has the consistency that I feel has been missing in 9 of his other albums.
Covers a lot of different subject matter and perhaps due to his age it is far more mature than your normal rap release in the past couple of years.
At this juncture 20 years and 10 solo albums in, no other MC has ever rhymed at such a high level this deep into their career. Not Rakim. Not Kool G Rap. Not Slick Rick. Not Big Daddy Kane. No One.
