All In A Years Work

Just when we gave up all hope that Detox would ever happen, Andre Young shocked the world with a fully body of work. While his amazing N.W.A movie, Straight Outta Compton celebrates his historic past, this music is all about the future: New sounds, new flows, new energy. No matter how long it takes, some things are worth the wait.—EW

    This album is absolute trash!

  • Jumpman

    I don’t follow this overproduced mainstream shit. Dr. Dre fell off hard.

    • Guest

      Nobody cares, Sonic! Fuck off and stick to your bullshit trap posts. Take your meds with your multiple personality having ass #PillsAreGood

    • Arizona Ron From Tucson

      Your gay as fuck just like your choice of rappers you federal prison Jump-off!

  • This album was ridiculous. Production was definitely on point plus it sounds incredible through the studio monitors.

  • Coney

    This album had a few bangers but honestly haven’t listened to it again since it came out. No replay value at all

    • Dafuq

      I agree. It was a cool album, a few stand out tracks, but the replay value for me is low as well. If I wanna listen to some Dre shit I go for the Chronic or 2001.

      I haven’t even listened to this one since August.

    • Kris Kompute

      The Dre brand made mfs believe this album was good and it wasn’t. No one has listened to this shit since the summer.

    • 2012Industry1

      Y’all comments and reason for the negative reasons on this album explains the death of quality in Hip-Hop in general! Y’all suck!

  • RTH

    15 worst album number 8 dr. Dre Compton

  • Da Business

    Still in HEAVY rotation. Loved this lp.

  • prince cody

    NAH YN we weren’t feeling this and when I say we I mean me lmao. this album just lacked cohesiveness it’s called a soundtrack but it reminds me of American Gangster which was like the soundtrack to the soundtrack, comparing those two albums obviously jays a mc and dre is more of a producer Production was amazing but the concepts and lyrics didn’t have me coming back in the words of honorable DJ KHALED “You played yourself” YN lmao

  • thedeamkid19

    the movie was great but this is bullshit

  • Kris Kompute

    Album was shit.

  • Sina Mailer Daemon Djavadkhani

    Best album of all time !! Such a modern futuristic rock energy! Great pop culture context, production, and message! Great to see Dre grow up and feed the world with something so cinematic and nutritious!
