Who knew Snoop could come this hard after decades of cranking out formulaic pop-rap for profit? He's upped his lyric game for the first time since the late 90's, and his flow is vastly more ambitious and diverse, even if some of the songs are mildly uneventful.
The cover of Traffic's "Colored Rain" and "As The Years Go Passing By" are personal favorites. He'd go on to make a much better "Ring of Fire" cover on Sun Secrets; his covers of "To Love Somebody" and "River Deep, Mountain High" add psychedelic flair to otherwise boring songs. His only original composition on the LP "I'm Dying (Or Am I)" is also a stand-out.
