I love it so far but I'm gonna give it a few more spins before I actually rate it. So far I would give it a 4/5.

It's a good album no doubt about that but by no means is it as good as most of you are making it out to be. Most tracks were good, my main problem with it was that I just didn't think it flowed very well. Even though it was an album it felt more like a mixtape to me. A solid effort but not up to the level that I was expecting after so many years. 3/5 for me.
Didn't flow very well??! This album probably flows better than any album I've ever heard. The transistions between the songs and the way the concepts fit together. Sorry but I'm not buying that it didn't flow very well.

I voted dope.

I've been a Saigon fan since the first mixtape. So I been waiting for this s**t for a while.
We all know Saigon can rap and Just got bangers. That was a given.

The only thing that disappointed me was the tone. Damn near every track except a few made me feel like it was the end of the world. Sai used to be a little more witty and could have some fun some of the time, i.e Stocking Cap, Come Again, The Didundidunt Song...this joint was super duper serious. I guess Sai decided that's the type of music we need in these days and times.

I cant be mad at that and I'm definitely gonna cop. Preacher was the best track on the whole joint to me.

3.8 outta 5. Pretty sure overtime it will move up to 4 outta 5.

It's a good album and I also believe a good start. IMO the problem for the fans who have been waiting for this is we already feel like we know the cat. He still has to introduce himself to A LOT OF PEOPLE. Hopefully the album will catch a few new listeners and he can build a real following.

We've been spoiled in today's hip-hop with overpowering beats and average artists. I feel Saigon has the potential to be a great artist, so a lackluster start is okay. EX: 2Pac, Outkast, Busta, etc. These artists didn't explode out of the gate but we consider them some of the best.

finally found a copy and after a few listens this album is dope as hell. im feeling the way the album flows with the radio and alarm clock sports. only two things i would complain about is the mixing with the vocals being too low and the last track just sounds weird like it isnt done or something.

this album is great..production and lyrics were on point..only a couple of skippable tracks....will be purchased:ya:

2 of my favorite tracks:

[video - click to view]

"try and put in his head the more Bloods thats on the block, the more blood is gon' shed
check, check what he said, he said "Out here dodging the mortuary is not out of the ordinary"
Our people are so calm that it's scary, so when we in a war we aint worried
like a young G in the street is how I wanna be buried
look shorty, you put it wrong - here go a Thinking Cap, now put it on
with that mentality you're as good as gone..lying there with the bystanders lookin' on
i ain't tryna cook your corn, i'm tryna put you on"



[video - click to view]

"to all the ladies havin' babies on they own
these n*ggas ain't s**t ma, for real yo you better off alone
if he ain't smart enough to know why he should stay
then what could he possibly teach a seed anyway?"

uplifting but not preachy with a lot of heart...:bravo:

If by the last track you mean the one with Bun B, that's because the concept is that he is still dreaming and now he's on stage receiving an award and doing "Enemies" live....then the alarm clock goes off. If you already know that, sorry.
I agree with the vocals thing in some parts, Just seems to be doing that a little nowadays, the Just Blaze re-do of Joell Ortiz "Battle Cry" is the same. However, I can't front on the production itself. Just is really going for the epic feel and it works for me.
I will admit that on the first few spins I was underwhelmed by this album but for me alot of it had to do with the fact that I've been waiting a long time and basically this is a 2004/2005 album. Since that time albums from Lupe, Blu, Budden, Ortiz and others of his musical generation have come out with strong offerings. But I've had time to digest the album and compare it to its competition over the last decade and for me it stands up. Not the best but it holds its own.
