Biggie for Beginners,
This review is from: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
I wanted to give this collection 1 star, because Puff missed a trick here. Like previous reviewers have noted, this album is lacking in depth and has ignored the more 'nuanced' work that Frank White put out in the world. It really should have been a double CD with a book for liner notes.
But it isn't, and what is here is still seminal music in it's own right. Those of you who have heard about this dude but haven't heard much of his music, this is a good place to start I suppose. And if you like what you hear, go and cop the kid's ENTIRE back catalogue. Trust me, you won't be disappointed. Biggie Smalls is the illest. Ever.
