CRITIC REVIEWS

100
Drowned in Sound

An eloquent full stop at the end of an insane genre, and one of the most intelligent rap records of the last few years.

92
PopMatters

Musically, 2001 is about as close to brilliant as any one gangsta rap album might possibly get. The hip-hop rhythms are catchy, sometimes in your face, sometimes subtle, but always a fine backdrop for the power of Dre’s voice.

91
Entertainment Weekly

If this is truly, as he has implied, Dre’s last will and testament as a solo artist, it’s a hell of a way to go out.

AllMusic

No matter how much fun you may have, it's hard not to shake the feeling that this is cheap, not lasting, fun.

70
Spin

2001 proves that Dre's got the depth of soul to rise above his own shit and become a credit to the race.

Sputnikmusic

The album is musically solid, lyrically entertaining (albeit campy) and criminally underrated, pun intended.

60
NME

It's powerful enough in parts, but not clever enough to give Will Smith the fear.

Imo the most overrated hip-hop album of all time...

I have some VERRRRRRRRYYYY mildly nostalgic memories with some of the big hits from this, but FUCK it did not age well. + Ik I'm kicking a dead horse, but these skits are quite possibly the trashiest skits on any hip-hop record ever

The production makes this album what it is.
Purchasing 2001 from Amazon helps support Album of the Year. Or consider a donation?
