PostSubject: Ready To Die/Life After Death   Wed 01 Sep 2010, 2:02 pm

Two classics here, and you can never talk about them enough, IMO, along with others. This may end up being a questionnaire of sorts, but I just wanted to discuss these albums. I've been bumping Life After Death the past few days (RTD I've bumped a few weeks back) and not only has this album been in my collection since it's release in 97, it's also a personal favorite (5 stars) and it's in my top 10, battling another album (which I won't mention here, at least not yet, lol) for the #5 spot in my top 10. Let's discuss, among other things, topics such as:

*which album you think is superior
*your rating for both albums
*where they rank in your top 5, 10, 20, etc
*which album you bump the most

RTD 5 stars LAD 4 stars

Not sure where I'd rank either....I guess RTD is in my top 50 somewhere. LAD is lost in the forest

Unlike Terry I barely listen to it anymore. I always think of RTD when I want to listen to Biggie.

Ready to Die 5 stars.

Life After Deff - 4.25 -4.5

I also respectively disagree with the claims that LAD would've been better as a single disc. It deserved to be a double disc IMO.

Cosign on the double album comment. RTD is probably in my top 11 - 20, which has yet to be determined, lol.

In today's age, LAD would have barely been a double CD.

"*which album you think is superior

*which album you bump the most"

RTD is better, IMO. RTD is about a 4.5 (but it's at the top of the line for 4.5 star albums) and LAD is around a 3.75-4. Neither would make my top 100 of all time, I don't think. RTD might slip in. I bump RTD more.

You may be right. I also heard a weird rumor on many occasions that Biggie had planned for Born Again to be a "triple disc album".

*which album you think is superior- Ready To Die

*your rating for both albums- RTD 5.0 LAD 4.75

*where they rank in your top 5, 10, 20, etc- RTD is top 20 and LAD is top 30-40

*which album you bump the most- Probaly LAD cause its two disc.

I make one Pac topic and he flips out, so I just think he is being inequitable. Both albums have been discussed more than they ever need to be.

My feelings exactly, except drop RTD down to a 4. And I rarely bump it.
