4.0 out of 5 stars ., 4 Oct. 2007

This review is from: Donuts (Audio CD)
I'm not going to claim I was a massive Dilla fan before he died. I knew that he had connections with A Tribe Called Quest and Common, but that's about it -- and given the nature of music fans to name any deceased artist as a "tortured genius", albums like this should be approached with a clear mind. With Donuts though, the hype is well deserved.

What may initially sound jarring gains cohesiveness with further listens, creating a stream-of-consciousness style that continues through all 31 tracks. Each individual Donut offers something different as Dilla effortlessly twists old soul samples, combining them with some of the best beats in hip hop. Would this album have garnered so much attention had he not passed away? Probably not, but then it wouldn't have been the same album. Donuts is, after all, his parting message to the world; a man with a genuine love for music pouring his soul out onto record.
