Dr. Dre: The Chronic (Atlantic)
Andrew Smith, Melody Maker, 20 February 1993
IT'S OFTEN been said that if NWA's last LP had a saving grace, it was Dr Dre's eerie and innovative production work. As far as this reviewer's concerned, nothing short of a Papal Decree could've saved Efil 4 Zaggin from the torrent of stupid ideas that flowed from its grooves like so much molten shite, but I could see the apologist's point of view in this department. Which makes the prospect of a Dre solo effort intriguing, at least.
