Stretch Corleone's Ever-Growing Album Collection (Part 2: Hip Hop A-M)

I have both of those, actually. They can be found in the other part of this list under S. When an artist's name starts with the prefix "DJ" or "MC" I list it under whatever letter the actual name starts with. So DJ Shadow is under S, MC Lyte is under L, and so on...

And yes, Entroducing... is mind-blowing.

I actually pretty much feel the exact same way about those albums. Brown Sugar is just so easy to love right away, whereas Voodoo took a couple listens to really appreciate. And I think "dense and funky" is an excellent way to describe that album. :-P

Glad to see you enjoyed both Doggystyle and Brown Sugar upon listening to each for the first time!

Now that you've heard both of D'Angelo's albums, which would you say you like more?

I would have to agree. Muggs is one of the most underrated producers ever and his work on that album is crazy. Their second and third albums are great as well. Beyond that I haven't heard any other Cypress Hill albums all the way through.

I can also recommend a great album released last year from DJ Muggs & Planet Asia entitled Pain Language. Planet Asia has always been an impressive emcee and the beats bang. One of my favorite albums from last year for sure!

Good call on AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted and One For All. 2 of the best hip hop albums ever!

Best Albums of the 90's

Co-sign on all those albums that Instrumental named, but if you're gonna listen to just one...Illmatic all the way. Quite possibly the greatest hip hop album of all time, both musically and lyrically. Nas has made quite a bit of quality material since then, but nothing else of his has ever (and probably never will) match the intensity of Illmatic.

Interestingly enough, one of the best verses (maybe even THE best verse) on the album isn't even by Nas, but by guest emcee AZ on "Life's A Bitch" (the only guest appearance on the album). AZ's verse is often dubbed by fans as the greatest verse in hip hop period. They might be right.

When You Reach the Top You're On the Bottom - Another stab at this lyric quiz thing...

#44 is "Just Like A Baby" by Sly & The Family Stone, if I'm not mistaken.

Word. Auto-Tune blows. I mean, it's at least tolerable if you only have a few songs using it. But an entire album? Getdafuckouttahere!

I as well was disappointed with the new Kanye album. To tell you the truth I wasn't expecting much from it, since I knew beforehand it wasn't going to be anything like his previous work. But I thought maybe, just maybe Kanye would come through on the production side of things. He didn't.

You were a lot more generous with your rating than I was.

Stretch Corleone's Ever-Growing Album Collection (Part 7: Club/Dance/Electronica/Freestyle/House/Techno/Trance)

It's been quite a while since I heard it, but I do remember enjoying it a lot. I've actually been meaning to dig it out again, so thanks for the reminder!

Oh, and just an observation: how did that Cold War Kids album go from a A+ to a C+ in just over a month? I'm not at all familiar with the band, it's just something I noticed.

Good call on Voodoo! D'Angelo is tragically underrated and that's one of my favorite albums ever.
