Reviews For Illmatic (10th Anniversary Platinum Edition) By Artist Nas

    By GoodByeRiddance
    At one time iTunes had both now the only option available is this censored version. I want to buy the 10th anniversary edition but refuse to buy the censored version.

  • Good album, poor censoring

    By sorryaboutleroy
    I hate the people who edited this CD. I don't hate them because I hate the very notion of editing profane music (it can be done tastefully), but because they did so in the worst possible way. Instead of simply muting the offensive words -- as is the standard now -- the editors distort the sound of the words, so you are left with a lot of incomprehensible gibberish. Heaven knows this was not the best way to censor this CD and others like it, so why did they do it this way? It DESTROYS the music. I can listen to a rap song with the F-words muted and still appreciate its essence, but I can't appreciate a song that has sounds that don't even belong in the recording (i.e., the distorted words that replace the actual words). One other thing. Why are references to drugs removed from rap music? Such references are not removed from country music (e.g., Johnny Cash), yet somehow they are never allowed in the edited versions of rap music. Why? This is a flagrant double standard and one which must be stopped immediately. Forget this CD until they revise it with better editing.

    Nas got lyrics

    Illmatic is the one of the most monumental musical compositions of our time, and NaS is one of the premier poets of his generation. His lyrical ability and raw passion is apparent with every single verse in the album, and not only does it flow smoothly and sound great, its incredibly coherent and eloquent, and is great social commentary. The platinum edition however is a bit excessive; obviously the first disk(the original album) remains the bible of hip hop, however the second disk's remixes are wack as hell, the production value is cheezy and electronic sounding. Not to mention the lyrics are changed around and often edited, the new beats definately dont honor the prestige of the lyrics. The two other tracks are dope as hell though, on the real has a ten year old verse that didnt make the original album that is fly as hell.....after my thc induced ramblings the point finally, is buy the original LP if you dont already own Illmatic, but if you do dont bother purchasing this star wars and on the real individually

Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
