Many fans, including myself, were on first hearing, disappointed when first confronted with the heavy vibe of this album. I certainly initially wondered where the daisy age, happy vibe had gone. However, 'De la soul is dead' has argubably aged better than their classic debut. The production, flow, lyrical content, Although darker is still full of De la's trademark inventiveness and wit. Chock full of dope samples and slamming beats, 'De la soul is dead' in my humble opnion, Deserves to be considered a classic Hip Hop album. Check it.
