this is the same thing that happen to me in 2001 with "Demonz n my sleep"

Ya'll remember that when 1,000 copies

woodie told us they were mastered wrong by koch records

he was gettin them back but who knows what happened

All i know is why does this new shadow sound so low volume?

I can't bump it or nothing. (even though those type of keyboard key tone beats never bump but still)

It sounds dope but i can't hear shit....

Anyone notice?

Sounds just as low as the first advanced demonz n my sleep
I expect the XO album to be low volume but not this

THe version of snippets on demonz n my sleep that woodie boy gave me was low volume. I said wtff woodie knew
Then i got a cd version whicch was the advanced with 12 tracks but still low vol, i said wtf? so why would woodie let this get out in stores like thtat?

he said it was a accident on a few but reallly it was on purpose to sell more records on koch. It back fired i think

I dont know will find out from shadow why his new name album is low volume just like woodie demonz n my sleep cause i need a new copy with a louder

reg mastered audio album cause this is like a mixtape & i do not buy mixtapes

Have a lot to say cause i wanna buy this bitch but not payin for low audio shit

hit me

He didn’t want to have an Antioch sound? What is he going for then? It’s funny when some rappers try and switch their sound. A lot of times it doesn’t work and ends up hurting them in the long run. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

He also said he is too lyrically advanced to be rappin with big tone and other ppl he used to rap with and that he doesn't fuck with them no more. Good luck to him lol. You'd think after taking 15 years to finally drop his solo album he been promising everyone, it would be some straight fire. But its mediocre

I thought his lyrics were worse then they used to be. His flow was so smooth back in the day. All the cats that were on his album pretty much sucked, except A-wax obviously. His Arsenal Empire homies were subpar lyrically.

I just bought my copy off iTunes yesterday. I like that his production is different. We grow as humans so glad his beats did too. I dig it. I don’t notice it being low in quality though🤔I’ll have to give it a try in my vehicle to see if it does.

Artists want to experiment and take a different route / approach to keep THEMSELVES interested.

The art needs to feel fresh and challenging, and relevant to the moment they're living in, and therefore worth the time and money they spend.

Creativity is somewhat of fragile thing in that way. ESPECIALLY if it's not being constantly nurtured---artists will feel the need to do something drastic to "re-invent" themselves and get that feeling back that came naturally when they first started.

As fans, it's hard to sympathize with that. We feel insulted when our favorite rapper abandons all the things that made us fans in the first place.

I do think it has less to do with trying to gain a new audience/ being disloyal to the day 1's, and more to do with themselves as creative people.

That's the only way I can justify what happens to ALL OF my favorite rappers.

I get what you’re saying. I’ve never looked at it like that but it makes sense

The beats to me didn't sound experimental at all. I thought they just sounded like average at best Norte produced music. I think he put out his album way to late in his rap career. To put out his first album at age 40 years is kinda crazy.

Ok that's one song. 90% of it was of the beats sounded old and were pretty weak. He took 20 years to come out with an album and it was average at best. B- Dawg and A-Wax are the exceptions but the rest of the features sucked.

I gotta disagree on that features thang the dudes he had from RI and MA were okay Lazie Locz Should strictly be doing the beats he is amazing in that aspect I think it's because you guys are just older and used to the Woodie type beats that shadow was rapping on back in the days Woodie was like Dr Dre level of beats while nowadays it's all computer work that does it

u trippen guys. this is the best sound i heard from east co co i nyears....

since 05 b dawg when woodie died

He just misssing big tone

i like them on those type of beats but if u listen to it... their like repeated old type of beats on some songs but there is good stories in it

Shadow came correct. Nothing wrong with shadow on his story telling. He starts off on some songs (WEIRD)


Be patient. He comes correct on each song. I like almost every song. I wish there was more big features with lil raider more a wax cause he is diffferetnt.

That song about woodie killing himself is crazy. A wax is like talkin to a gun like woodie was b4 he died.... Crazy story t4eller shit

Woodie is so missed. this shows why woodie didn't drop them. They have a hard time making music without woodie is what i heard....

So i heard.. Woodie was the one that wass always coming up with ideas and shadow got skills. We know this

This cd is bettter then any other bay shit out

SHadow or someone, can u get me a original copy cause the digital version is low audio. If this was good audio (Mastered better) it hit better in a stereo and sound better. It's trebled up like demonz n my sleep in 2000. I got the re release which iss louder but i need this in louder mode


I hate when artist do this... C murder did that in 08 on a album. It was low like this. I wonder why the record companies do it. Maybe shadow didn't have the money. Who knows.... I find that hard to believe thoguh. Artist be droppin records all day sounding fine....

Anyway great album shadow but keep us updatee on why the master is low. THx and props on a great album. I'm excited for the future

Miss woodie :(

I don’t expect woodie beats at all. I expect dopeness because I’ve been waiting for an album from him since 2002. This is how I feel personally. I’m not gonna like his shit just cuz I’ve been waiting all these years and then he just drops some mediocre shit. if it’s wack, Ima keep it real.


On a similar note, I’ve been a fan of Wax’s music since 2001 and I’ve seen his shit evolve over the years; he may have switched up his flows and beats but, I feel that he’s only gotten better being “experimental” or however y’all say it.
