Menacing, muscular and magnetic, DMX has been hard-core rap's unrivaled top dog. After the deaths of icons 2Pac and Biggie, when rap was threatening to go soft--DMX's uncompromising intensity and street cred kept hard core hard. With the expected 2010 release of two new albums, The Best Of DMX (Island Def Jam/UMe), released January 26, 2010, collects 19 of his best tracks from 1998 ... Read more in Amazon's DMX Store

Despite his membership among today's corporate rap elite, as DMX's The Great Depression proves, the overwrought production and excessive use of trite catch phrases that typify their breed can't mask the Dark Man's innate raw power. While X's reputation is intact and it's hip-hop as a genre that's floundering, the album serves as an antidote to the flood of insipid hip-hop/R&B combinations and "Oochie Wally"-isms that clog the airwaves. Standout tracks include the riot-inducing "Who We Be" and the dead-on "Shorty Was Da Bomb". Even the lesser tunes are dope. On first listen, Depression's most accessible song, "We Right Here", comes off as mindless radio fodder, but its blunt chorus quickly grows on you. The album's centerpiece, "I Miss You", is a genuinely personal composition built around a universal theme. Here, DMX's lyrics and delivery invite the same favourable comparisons to Tupac Shakur that he had received earlier in his career. --Rebecca Levine

What have we have come to expect from DMX? After his last few albums, nothing less than music where the lyrics paint you a bright and wonderful tapestry of the subject he raps about. This album is great, not only because it contains DMX's trademark lyrics, but also the contrast between the different songs. In my opinion (well since i'm writing it, it will be) all the songs are great, but "we right here" is probably the best song any artist has made this year. For all you people out there that think his music is just a hotbed of swearing and violence inducing lyrics, you couldn't be more wrong. I'm not saying that the album contains no swearing, of course not, but the lyrics contrast from being deep and poetic, to aggressive and energetic, and this improves the album. A good example would be "bloodline anthem", a great powerful and aggressive song, and "i miss you" a deep song about the loss of his late grandmother RIP, which ventures into his emotions. To conclude this album is definately worth buying, and will make a worthy addition to your collection, definately one for all you hip-hop heads out there.

I didn't buy this cd because of any singles. I had all the previously released DMX cds and thought, why not?
The cd is really good. Like the Title says, it's depressing and dark, like always but I kinda think this is deeper. Like he's opening and letting people get a piece of his mind. There are several good tracks on here. "Who We Be", "Trina Moe", "We Right Here", "Shorty Was Da Bomb", "I Miss You" & "A Minute for your son" are all really good. But the attempt to create another banging street anthem like ruff ryders anthem realy failed with Bloodline anthem. Could Have been done better..
Good Album if you're into DMX but for newcomers I would Recomend "It's dark and Hell is Hot" or "Blood of my blood, flesh of my flesh" they are better..

Im predominantly a Metal fan but as that includes the likes of Biohazard and Suicidal Tendencies i am open to Rap if its of a rougher nature ie Fort Minor, Silver Bullet, Public Enemy, NWA etc.
This is definiteley a release with that crossover appeal with its hard assed lyrics dealing with the darker side of street life and DMX's razor blade vocals. This guy is to Rap what AC/DC's Brian Johnson is to Rock!
Low, gravelly and will strip your wallpaper. The production is state of the art with effective instrumentation, clever samples and snippets of 70' soul classics in between tracks. X goes for a big production whilst not losing sight that the idea is to portray the realities of so many peoples lives. The lyrics and story lines are tough in places; robbery, guns, jail, violence, casual sex etc but X is never afraid to state his Faith and injects some redemption in amongst the urban battle. There is light & shade here with various female rappers to answer X back at times (deservedly so!)
There is even the odd burst of aggressive guitar on the track I'ma Bang to accompany the trademark X snarl. This should please the Metal crowd but the intense delivery throughout proves that music can be just as hard & heavy without the axe attack. Just listen to X spit out the words to standout track Who We Be and then beg to differ.
As expected, the language is as hard & frank as the beats and not for the faint heart. The N word must be into triple figures by the end.
(This is not the cartoon world as depicted by Eminem)

Highlights: Who We Be, I'ma Bang (2 great skits either side)

This is the fourth album from X, and it puts him back up there as of one of todays most talented peformers. DMX's third release, 'And then There was X' was a slight drop off in quality, but this album is da bomb! Tha Dog's lyrics are hot, and the beats are blazing. Plus, X has brought back Damien for a third time. This ongoing story with DMX and the Devil was sorely missed on 'And Then There Was X'. The third installment is just as good, retaining the outstanding storytelling skillz. Othere stand-out tracks include 'Who we be', 'We Right Here' and the collaboration with Faith Evans, a message to X's late grandmother. Overall this is probably D's second best album, behind 'It's dark and Hell is hot'. With dope lyrics and tight beats, this solid album is a must-have for all X fans, and for any hip hop fan.

Lets get started, this is no ITS DARK AND HELL IS HOT, but it is far better than AND THEN THERE WAS X... there are the usual hard anthems that we all know and love.But some of the best tracks are the heartfelt tribute to his grandma.One of the highlights has to be the return of Damien who was sadly missed on the last album.DMX'S one liners,hard hitting beats and a new sense of humour make this album a true return to form.BUY THIS ALBUM,if you like this i also recommend JA RULE-PAIN IS LOVE,JAY-Z-BLUEPRINT AND JADAKISS-KISS THE GAME GOODBYE.Overall this is one hip hop album that will be played for years to come-GET IT!

This album is a must for any hip-hop fan. From start to finish every track is amazing. There is the anthemic "We Right Here"(it is the only joint made this year that'll knock till 2003)to the deep and meaningful "I Miss You". The production is tight and the lyrics are great. This is the best hip-hop album this year. X rules
