    For every sick beat or killer line, there's another instance of Game rhyming a word with... yup, the same word. Dear Game: Dre called. He wants his voice back and says get off his d!@k.

    I felt like it was just a bit boring. I've heard it all before a thousand times. I suppose it gets an above average score because the producers are good, and he's keeping the true spirit of the West alive, but on the whole, I'm not that impressed. And he really needs to stop name-dropping. It was novel on his first joint, but now it's just annoying. He literally says I felt like it was just a bit boring.

The Just Blaze-produced Nas collabo is the high point. Expand

    dull, yawnable at some parts. Game states the obvious in most rhymes. Recomend it to ppl wanting a west coast resurection (no allusion to his other cd). Unfortunately Game dosn't deliver, and the name dropping is out of control, sometimes witty but mostly alluding to artists he takes after.

  1. It doesn't live up to the nihilistic brilliance of The Documentary... But [The Game] doesn't fall flat on his face, either.
  2. The Game has a lot to prove, but rather than establishing his own style he continues in the west coast tradition, with G-funk's squealing synths and endless references to "the chronic".

    Even though "Doctor's Advocate" has its failings, it's a prescription that comes recommended. [18 Nov 2006]
