great album, November 15, 2009

hands down the best legends release of '09.
dj fresh provides the slappers and bicasso comes with his best work to date.

Surprisingly good, October 27, 2008

1. Timeless - 9/10 - Slow, soulful, flawless
2. We Here - 4/10 - More upbeat, great production but subpar lyrics and repetitive chorus bring it down
3. R U Listenin - 10/10 - Funky shit, very very nice joint and a sick verse from Guilty Simpson
4. Alien Family - (Interlude with a nice beat and some words from Frank Nitty about the yancy fam)
5. Strugglin' - 7/10 - Beat is simple but chillin, lyrics are aight, hook is ok, but nothing outstanding
6. Showtime - 8/10 - Chill and smoke a blunt to this one
7. Swagger - 6/10 - Not a bad joint but it didnt grab me
8. Mr. Shakes - (Goofy ass interlude)
9. DFTF - 9/10 - Smoothed out with nice flows, this one came together real well. Very ATCQ-ish.
10. All Good - 8/10 - Hypnotizing track, makes me want to take a nap, very chill.
11. Sounds Like Love - 9/10 - Another laid back joint but this one woke me up. I'm likin the hook from Debi Nova. This shit is ill.
12. Everytime - 7/10 - Solid track, illa's flow starts out good but becomes mediocre.
13. Illasoul - 5/10 - Average track. Good beat, good hook, subpar rhymes.
14. Air Signs - 6/10 - Another track that could be a lot better with good raps.


Overall its a good album. The beats are outstanding and makes you want to hear someone that can actually flow. But to his credit, he did better than I expected on the mic and its enjoyable.
8/10

album of the year, September 20, 2008

this is my pick for album of the year, hands down. opio brought it all on this one. a phenomenal album front to back with some insane flows. also- raw beats from the architect knock hard and flow perfectly from one joint to the next. the dvd is icing on the cake and has some sick videos of almost all the tracks on the album.

too dope for words..., February 29, 2008

Theres not much else i can say about this except... PURE DOPENESS... this is an amazing piece of work by the one and only collahollaration that is sure to send you into a state of pure bliss as soon as the vibes reach your eardrums. An eclectic composition of beats encompassing a range of genres, Proper Chillage is a phenomenal album. I give it my highest recommendation.

best wu group album since forever, December 14, 2007

they lived up to my expectations on this. rza did an excellent job with the production and all members come at the top of their game. heart gently weeps is definitely the standout track with ghost's verse being one of the best i've heard in a long long time. the only weak spots are some of the hooks which get a little repetitive. overall i would give this a 4 outta 5.
