The first album is hot but Im not about to place it next to 12Play,Guy's debut,or Mary's first two.
The first album is hot but Im not about to place it next to 12Play,Guy's debut,or Mary's first two. I'd put it next to those four albums without hesitation.

love in this club was polow tha don.
love in this club was polow tha don. And he put the song together with stock loops from garage band! LOL!!!
Not something that I would have checked for normally, but I checked it nonetheless. There's some dope sounds on here, but for the most part it sounds like expensive gear was used to make the record. The sound is pretty heavily defined by the efficiency of the gear. I feel like a lot of people could have made this record if given access to the same equipment, but that's not to detract from dude's accomplishments, cause he actually did do it. Definitely some compelling elements, and interesting compositions, but if its a benchmark I'd say that's more on the part of the engineer.
hemol, it's not an expensive gear thing. Dream and Tricky Stewart are smart dudes.
HahahahahaWorst poast ever
hemol, it's not an expensive gear thing. Dream and Tricky Stewart are smart dudes. Talking about different connotation of the word 'sound' here. You can definitely hear the quality of the gear.*The point I was getting at was that a large portion of the quality sound of this record would be lost if it wasn't made on such clean gear. The music itself is strengthened by the kind of quality/clarity that a Class A studio provides. Not saying the music is worthless without the pro studio, just nowhere near as compelling without that synthesis. What he's done is create music that is strengthened by what the studio provides. There's mad music that comes out of pro studios that isn't improved by the studio at all. C7, you know what I'm talking about here?
HahahahahaWorst poast ever Come off it already dude. Shit, at least I'm open minded enough to listen to something outside of my usual suspects and give it an honest chance. Happy to give you a laugh, sorry you got so much bitter superiority swirling in your mind garden.

love in this club was polow tha don.and for the comment about getting sick of his ay ay ay ella ella ad libs. he doesn't do the ella thing much. Maybe once on this album. Everybody does eyyys these days. it's kind of his trademark thing too. He's not really overdoing it. He's doing his thing. That's part of his style. Kind of like Jeezy ad libs. I'm not mad at a dude for pointing out that he created a catchy phrase. I don't think he beats it into the ground either.
Check this out folls! The Dream in the studio working on the "Love Vs. Money" album. This dude sure can knock out new songs in a short amount of time. Plaese to watch and discuss......
I think this kind of music might not be for you...
i disagree that this is a 'mind garden' classic. im not even really sure what that means & kinda get annoyed w/ the distinction after awhile -- im not mad at recognizing the importance/impact/society/community factors when it comes to recording music & in fact im very much NOT an obscurities-only-plz kind of dude. but at a certain point u have to recognize how different this sounds from lots of other things out there. i dont think its nearly as derivative of prince as batmon seems to be implying either -- its obviously there but the style also comes equally from that expansive late 90s ginuwine/timbo production style + the lyrical influence from kells ... imo the first record is pretty game-changing. theres already been imitation joints like jeremih's "birthday sex"
