It's a shame that they didn't release this as a gatefold.

_THE_ G-funk album, actually the album that defined the whole term. Dr. Dre at his best as a producer, using P-funk samples to produce something maybe even tighter than the originals.

Snoop Doggy Dogg is an essential ingredient - the album wouldn't probably we nothing without him and his lazy finesse. As a 2xLP the A, B and D sides are pure platinum, the C-side isn't quite as tight, but still above average.

This album, though, is one of those, that provide pleasure purely from the sonic dimension, for the themes the album covers are pretty narrow and disinteresting, which is a problem in all Dre's career as an MC. Self-promotion, dissing, drug abuse/glorification and other similar gangsta themes are numbing in the long run.

Still, this album is a must-have album for anyone interested in the history of hip-hop and/or gangsta rap.
