Every Friday you can now expect a new RLGT 100 word review! This was a definite fan favourite from Phase 1, so we wanted to bring it back for y’all, with even more frequency! We know when you read a review you want to spend less time reading and more time listening (depending on the review, I guess), so that is why we always keep it short and sweet. 100 words, give or take… starting now:
redleafgoldteeth 100 Word Review: Snoop Dogg – Bush
Forever a legend, Snoop Dogg (not Snoop Lion, thank god) is back with a funky vengeance on Bush. The Pharrell produced project is full of that west coast bounce that you’d want to bump in your retro pink Caddy. The project has a solid amount of quality contributors, including Stevie Wonder, Gwen Stefani, Kendrick, Ross, and TI, and in my opinion all the biggest standouts were those with features, as you could feel the fun vibes radiating off these tracks. We don’t advocate any illegal activity (but Snoop does), and halfway through the first song will find yourself in need of a hoot. If you don’t have fun listneing to this album, I suggest re-listening with the proper circumstances. Solid outing overall. (Word count: 122… finger munchies, sry not sry)
Rating: 78/100 – Enjoyable completely, nothing groundbreaking, but at this point in his career you can’t expect much that maintaining of popularity. The whole album feels like it could be watched while the “Sensual Seduction” video played on silent.
Standout Tracks: “Edibles” ft. T.I.- T.I. shines with enjoyment like most of the features on this album, “California Roll” ft. Stevie Wonder – Great into to the project, could be listened to whenever, and of course “R U A Freak” because it was jivey as f*ck.
In conclusion, Snoop Doggy Dogg puts out yet another experimental project, but succeeds with more than moderate success on Bush. The only thing I would say is that the album almost sounds more like a Pharrell album (if you can even call that a criticism), and perhaps should be seen as a collaboration album even more than just a Snoop album, because that would change they preconceived notions that come true with the first listen. The album is fun, and almost so fun that you might need a little, Bush, to get on its level… but what do I know about that?
