MASTAMINDENov 17, 2006Whoa, The Game has really impressed me this time around. While I appreciated The Documentary primarily for its incredibly solid production and generally good guest verses The Game himself had rather weak flow. He had virtually the same pace on each song. On the Doctor's Advocate the solid production is back, but the guests are even better. Verses provided by Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, Will.i.am, Kurupt, Nas and Xzibit easily beat anything that could've been provided by 50 Cent, G-Unit, or Eminem. Most importantly though, Games rapping has greatly improved. Lyrically its stronger (though the rampant name dropping is still present) and his flow is smoother and his pacing varied. There are genuine surprising moments like on the song Wouldn't Get Far. Where the Game adapts effortlesslyto any beat provided. All in all a great achievement, the incessant name dropping could be avoided and his rather bloated ego also detract a bit. Nonetheless, easily one of the best rap albums of the year.… Expand
aL.cksDec 20, 2006You can feel real emotion listening to this album and Game's flow has improved so much. In all, its way better than Jay-Z's KIngdom Come.
AhmedSNov 15, 2006A lot of the Tracks have different melodies...however many do stay close to the "west coast" rap formula. By far the two songs i enjoy the most on this album are, "Let's Ride" produced by scott storch, and "Too Much" Ft. Nate Dogg. This album has its chron-licks, picthfork didn't give it an 81for no reason. As for the people say its not as good as "The Documentery" because Dre and 50 didn't help... That is utter BS. The Game has some amazing producers and features that make this album better then the last, however, the fact is that the style varies heavily (due to the fact the game is trying to reach various audiences) this only makes a few songs prominent to each individual...for some tracks are less/more appealing then others. All in all, if you have G-Unot, and love West Coast rap, this is an album for you. Why the 8? Simply because I felt the album/direction of the game was confused. He tried doing to much, and did not restrict the median of his album. Hence some of the songs are a hit and miss with me. Hope this helped.… Expand
