    Dr. Dre still bangin' out good music

    14 years is a long time for a musician to go without putting out an album, but Dr. Dre has been anything but quiet during this time. From producing rap albums, working with his headphone line, and more recently, helping with production on the movie, "Straight Outta Compton" and making this album, "Compton" A Sountrack, he has kept his hands full. Now, I wasn't really sure what to expect from this album, since it has been awhile since we have heard any new Dre music. I have to say, it is a departure from the gangsta rap music he has been known for putting out, but these tunes are pretty dang good. At first I thought the album was just alright, but the more I listened to it, the more it grew on me. I would definitely recommend this CD to anyone who is into rap music. Dr. Dre gets an A+ in my book

    This album is decent, but nowhere near what I expected. I'm a huge Dr. Dre fan and he is an idol of mine, but this album sounds like he was trying too hard to stay relevant. Most of the beats sound like everything else out there today. Usually when Dre releases an album, everyone else tries to sound like him. The lyrics are on point, for the most part, but this album just doesnt have that west coast bangin sound that you expect from Dr. Dre. There's a few good songs that i would recommend, but outside of that, its nothing special. The Game's new Documentary 2 and 2.5 are great. 2.5 is the best west coast album I've heard in years. I highly suggest you pick that one up, asap!

    Dre might have waited a little too long

    Production is nothing short of any Dre project, but this album is nowhere near the impact that 2001 had. I remember not being able to turn that cd off, as well as, everywhere you went someone was bumping it. Maybe Dre waited a little too long to drop his long awaited album. When you have artists like Kendrick, Yelawolf, Tech N9ne, YG, etc. dropping great albums with just as good of production with/without Dre, either using there momentum to there advantage, changing the style of rap music, and/or trying to bring the hard hitting West Coast flavor back. This one isn't one to put on repeat. This cd is good, not "bangin'", but good.

    A CD worth buying

    I very rarely buy CDs anymore, most of my music is downloaded in MP3 format. MP3s are compact and convenient, but you trade some sound quality for that compact convenience. That with the fact that there aren't many hip-hop albums even worth purchasing. This is one of those CDs that's worth buying, not only because it's a great album, but because Dr. Dre is one of those beat makers that really pays attention to the details of the track. Details that will be missed in lower, compressed formats and the details is what has always made his beats amazing.

    Not his best, but it's still Dre

    I don't think anything can live up to Chronic and Chronic 2001. I was hoping Detox would, but after it got pushed back multiple times and then cancelled, I lost hope. I'm glad he came out with something, but it almost seems as though he just gave up by the end and instead of making another timeless album with Detox, he made an average album at best with Compton. There are good songs with some good features, but in my opinion too many features. It almost seems like he raps less than his features. I'll still bump it, but with an empty feeling.

    I was really excited for this album after seeing Straight Outta Compton as I am sure many people my age were, but it doesn't deliver. I was hoping for more of the classic artists associated with Dr. Dre and maybe some collaborations with current west coast artists. There are a lot of new voices and new talent, but I just wasn't blown away. There are a couple of tracks that I really like, but overall it is a fair effort. I would only recommend this album to hard core fans and completists.

    Dr. Dre is back

    Dre is back, and he brought his friends. As has been said about him before, he may not be a super-duper rapper, but he is a super-duper producer. While his rapping may be outshone (especially by his proteges Kendrick Lamar and Eminem), the album has that great Dre sound, very clean with uncommon samples. It's also nice to hear some of Dre's long term collaborators like Xzibit, Snoop Dogg, and Ice Cube. The album tells a great story, definitely one of 2015s must listen albums.

    This is definitively not what i was expecting. I heard a lot of noise regarding this album and all of the critics gave it such high praise that i guess i was expecting too much. Its ok but not great. Dont get me wrong there are plenty of bangers on it but not a classic album through and through, I tried to like the album as a whole but cant. I give it four stars as this is way better than a lot of the garbage out there but it is far from a 5 star album.
