  1. There's little doubt that "Tha Blue Carpet Treatment" ultimately qualifies as a successful follow-up to "R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta) - The Masterpiece," although there's also little doubt that Snoop is not pushing any new boundaries or exceeding already set expectations.
  2. A house party celebrating Snoop's whole career.
  3. "Tha Blue Carpet Treatment" and its no-frills West Coast productions are refreshingly focused on Snoop, not his guests.
  4. 70
    A throwback to his trunk-rattling G-funk heyday.
  5. Snoop plays to his storytelling strength, crafting a record to show he still cares about the music.
  6. 40
    He's just retracing past missteps. [Dec 2006, p.100]

    Yo, yo, yo! This ain't Doggystyle, or The Chronic, but Snoop still got it. Still his crazy old self! You gotta love it!

    High five to Snoop. This album still notes that he can be old and still be a great emcee. Keep it up.

    This is a dope hip/hop album, it blows Jay-Z's Kingdom Come out of the water. The album starts off better than any album I can think of, with the first 6 songs being better than anything released all year, but sadly there are to many forgettable "Gangsta" tracks on this album. The best songs on this album are the laid back ones, and to many times he trys to inforce his gangster image, but don't get me wrong nobody does "Gangsta" better than Snoop, and even though the middle of the album is a little weak, this is still a hip/hop album that is more than worth the money Expand

    What do ya'll critics want from Snoop? If you want sensitive lyrics, check Common. If you want fresh flow, check Ghostface. Snoop's just bein' Snoop. He might not be saying anything new (but who in rap is), but his flow is still smooth and impeccable, and this is the best produced Snoop album post-Doggystyle. Expand

    "This isn't my best album... in fact, it may be my worst." --Snoop Dog (yeah right, this guy has a 3 year-old's education, he'll never talk like that). "SUCK IT! SNOOP DOG, SUCK IT!" Expand
