One of the LL Crew's finest albums! (5 Stars)

- See all my reviews
I find it downright confusing that so many people have found this album to be simply "average". I was first exposed to CMA's "All Over", and loved it, which lead me to buy "Overall". At first listen I found this record to be better in the way of beats, rapping, and the overall hunger and soul that the Living Legends bring forth to their music. The beats are definitely not as "mainstream" or "expensive" sounding as the crew's newer records, but they do possess an addictive G-Funk laced swagger that is unmatched by either The Grouch's or Luckyiam.PSC's discography. The Grouch handles most of the production, and the beats knock hard. As far as rapping goes, this is grade "A" Living Legends. They are simply out to destroy the competition, and that's exactly what they bring forth. "The CMA", "Overall" & "U Might Knock This..." are at the top of this crew's game. If you are a Living Legends fan (and any true hip-hop head should be), you simply need this album in your collection!
