    I the album is a win. There are some tracks like fat cat, and urbinan that should not have made the album, they probably would have been dre tracks if he would have come through for cube. I don't think it is good to compare the classics to any of his new LP's because he is not the same person nor artist we should all appreciate that he is still doing music and support it.

    In my opinion Ice Cube created another great album but it can't touch Raw Footage (nothing can really, he outdone himself on that one).

    Reading around the internet, the general consensus is that Cube, lyrically, is raw as ever but the beats suck. I can kind of agree with that sentiment.

    On the plus side, allmusic.com is a site i usually go to for reviews and they gave this one a 4/5!

    Anyone got any word on an Australian release? Bought Raw Footage on ebay last time and was pretty sore when i saw that the Aussie release had the bonus tracks on it -_-

    For the whole ambum, I'd say FAIL. Because some songs are too new school, and some are too SHORT! I didn't expect this from Cube. Cube normally has songs about 4 minutes long, but some songs at this album are only 2 minutes!!! But still, there are a couple of songs who are TOO WEST COAST!! (Money or your Life, Too West Coast, Rep That West, Life in Cali..)

    Win, I haven't heard a bad album yet come from Cube. Like most artists, U will like one album more than another. I do like his political songs and the ones about the damn cops because we can all relate to those. Just think about how the Bush Administration raped and pillaged this country for 8 years and got away with it and billions of $. And how close we came to having someone as stupid as that lying ass bitch Palin in the White House continuing Bush's lunitic activities. I hope Cube keeps saying it like it is and keeps it Gangsta for real. Then, we all win. Peace.
