CRITIC REVIEWS

90
AllHipHop
The Doggfather succeeds at tapping into every phase of his 25-year career in just over an hour. In the hands of a lesser artist, it could easily seem like he or she is spreading themselves too thin. However, with Snoop, that is not the case.

XXL

Shunning party-hearty staples for the mainstream and taking it back to the concrete, Snoop Dogg turns back the hands of time on Neva Left, delivering an album that is a testament to his unprecedented staying power.

Pitchfork

It might not always be on trend, but on his 15th studio album, Snoop sounds in great shape and like he’s having the time of his life.

AllMusic

Heavily nostalgic and yet fully energized, Neva Left continues Snoop Dogg's easy whim-to-whim glide.

Exclaim!

If Snoop could just cut his track lists in half and focus on well-crafted party songs, the Doggfather might just find himself back on top.

There's still some gripes I have with the production, but with a team of good features, and literally just rapping over C.R.E.A.M, Snoop manages to make a pretty good album. Definitely one of the better Snoop projects. Thank god.

Cool for moments, but come on Snoop you really think you're gonna ride that iconic C.R.E.A.M. loop as good as anyone on the original? The best tracks are in the middle/nearing the end, like 420 (Blaze Up), Lavender (nightfall Remix), and Still Here. It's cool to see Snoop drop some quality, but the keyword there is 'some.' If I'm picking between my favorite modern Snoop outings, I'd rather go with BUSH.

A return to form of sorts for the rapper, Neva Left is less pop and back to true Hip-Hop. It's still a bit generic and forgettable but it's definitely nice to hear Snoop like this again.

Best Track: 420 (Blaze Up)
Worst Track: Trash Bags

While his previous album Coolaid might have reminded people that Snoop was still a part of the rap game, Neva Left doesn't do much to remind anyone that Snoop never left
