5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy sequel to the Blueprint. Better though? Im not sure, 18 Nov. 2002
This review is from: The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse (Audio CD)
I Just bought this album today and have been listening to it pretty much non-stop. I have to admit I'm impressed. It doesn't really have the immediacy of the original blueprint, with nothing to match the ruthlesness of 'the takeover' or a really big manufactured hit that everyone can relate to such as 'IZZO'.
What it does have though is great beats, heavy rhymes and 2 discs full of quality songs. The first song, 'A dream' kicks the album of in great style, with one of Big's verses of his classic hit 'Juicy' used. Hovi baby follows in similarly impressive style. Love it or hate it, Bonnie and Clyde is on this album, and though a lot of people think Jay is disrespecting 2pac by covering his hit, I think the Jigga man does it justice.
Guns & Roses with Lenny Kravitz has potential to be a commercial smash, but for me the standout track on the album is Some How Some Way, an emotional joint about the struggle out of the ghetto.
The album is similar to the original blueprint in that it uses catchy soul samples as hooks to the songs, but the production is even better here, it blew me away.
Dre, The Neptunes and Timbaland are outclassed by Kayne West and Just Blaze, these guys are gonna be big!
Overall its a great album, is it better than the blueprint? Im not sure if Jays rhymes are up to the quality found there, I guess your just gonna have to decide for yourself! You wont be dissapointed if you buy it!
