Sometimes a project that threatens to be too perfect turns out to be underwhelming. Who'd have thought that a set of 19 songs by Snoop and Nate Dogg with Warren G, a reunion of a group they formed at the outset of their careers, would provide few completely mind-blowing tunes à la B Please? It's definitely not a total loss, with great production entries from Hi-Tek and DJ Pooh and a strong West Coast flavour throughout, plus a lot of standout vocals from Snoop. Nate fares well throughout, and on the mic Warren G sounds somewhere between his half-brother Dr. Dre and DJ Quik. Still, something invisible's missing, so the record rarely reaches the heights it should. An out-of-date "I'm Rick James, bitch" Dave Chappelle cameo doesn't help much.
