CD Reviews

Truly a legend
Kurupt | chicago | 12/02/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After rapping for over 22 years Face just keeps getting better. Threatening to retire, Scarface drops some classic heat to end out 2008. The album has the same format instrumental beginning and end and 12 songs. I didnt care for the intro this time because Lil J talked over the whole thing and the hook on SOLDIER STORY was a little weak to me. Other than that this album is dope. Scarface once again touches on many different topics and paints the picture in his rhymes better than anyone else. To top it off the production and guest appearances (Bun B, Weezy, Wacko, Bilal) are dope. Highly recommended album!!!!"
Play this one all the way through -- Perfect last CD for 'Fa
R. Buley | Seattle, WA | 12/04/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"First, I'll just mention I am a huge Scarface fan. And therefore, have high expectations. If you aren't familiar with his classic music, you have to listen to a few songs -- I Seen A Man Die, Now I Feel Ya, Mind Playin' Tricks, Hand of the Dead Body, In Between Us -- and definitely get his album, The Diary.

But back to his latest, and possibly last album. 'Face has nothing left to prove, and I'm alright with him going out on top of his game. This CD is a rare CD in the fact that it is dope from track #2 to track #13 (#1 and #14 are the intro and outro). It was interesting to listen to the raw deal he got during the intro...

My favorite standout tracks are:

Forgot About Me ft. Lil Wayne and Bun B
Can't Get Right
Who Are They
Soldier Story

But really there isn't a single song on this CD that doesn't knock. High Powered, Emeritus, High Note... The whole CD bangs. The beats are really outstanding. As a previous reviewer noted, the beats from each song flow together perfectly. The beats are just classic Scarface.

I would highly recommend this. It's hard to compare to other 'Face albums, I'd have to say I like them all. This is probably one of the best from beginning to end. The only drawback for me, there isn't a song on here that I just go 'WOW!' from. No really big hit song, like 'I Seen a Man Die' or 'Mind Playin Tricks' like the old 'Face.

But this is really one of the rare CD's that you can just pop in and let it play all the way through. Thanks for the memories 'Face, I'll miss you."
Whole CD hits! Solid sound

"Face has released a strong album with Emeritus. Every single song hits. Very solid production. Each song is beautifully produced with solid bass, mids, and vocals. Seriously. This CD will take full advantage of your entire sound system. Reminds me of the solid full sound of the Chronic. Rush out and buy it, don't download.

Check "It's Not a Game" and "Who Are They".
