superb, another album worthy of a classic, DMX does it again
on 21 October 2001
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.
