Not an outright masterpiece but it is a breakthrough for hip hop production (Dre's talents are really noticeable here). The rapping is just ok pretty much everywhere EXCEPT for when the excellent Ice Cube takes the mic... the whole project is elevated by Cube's energy.

One of the most important album in hip hop. Unfortunately it is not well tied-up together. Some forgettable moments and some classic moments.

Slightly overrated (I think Public Enemy's ITANOMTHUB is more influential for gangster rap and hip hop in general) but great album. Opening three tracks are solid gold.

NWA kicks open the door and then proceeds to quietly mutter to itself for the remainder of the album.

Blueprint for rap and hip-hop of the 90s, sadly it havent aged well and the lyrics feel less impactful now than in the 80s. But the good songs, are REALLY good.

Great album, the vulgur, brash attitude in tracks such as Gangsta Gangsta and Fuck Tha Police cause quite a ruckus. Here we were introduced to Arabian Prince, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, MC Ren, and DJ Yella. I also like Express Yourself, Straight Outta Compton, If It Ain't Ruff, and Parental Discretion Iz Advised. Game changing album that can't be ignored.

Classic hip hop album. Straight outta Compton, is great from start to, well, the penultimate track. Something 2 dance 2, is awful and should never have ended up on the final LP. One thing though, I don't no whether to laugh or cry at some of the absurd lyrics, but that's rap for you. Still, I simply cannot doubt the power of this scorching album.

One of the most groundbreakingly influential albums in all of hip-hop. NWA hit harder than their hip hop predecessors (like Run DMC and Public Enemy)by telling stories about their hard knock lives in the most dangerous part of the country. Their music highlighted the violence of gangs, the dependence on drugs in impoverished cities, the corruption of police, and the pursuit of a better lifestyle among other topics. NWA's music changed the genre and a influenced movements throughout the entire nation while still remaining true music to where it was from: Compton, California.
Best Songs: Straight Outta Compton, Fuck tha Police, Express Yourself, I Ain't The One
