[ALBUM REVIEW] Diddy Dirty Money - Last Train To Paris
Alright as soon as you pop in this CD (or download the entire album; depending on your preference) and you hear the first couple of tracks and you develop your opinion, it most likely wont change listening to the rest of it. It's not to hate on the album but I found that once I got to track 5, I thought it was all just one track.
The album starts off with a somewhat pointless intro. If anything allow the beat and production of the first track to give you an idea of what you're in for (now I know that's the point, but it's always not a good indication). Diddy has been around for quite some time now and he is an example of the changes found in the genre of music. Not to be bias because different song types attract different people but if you're not feeling the whole "club love" thing, just understand that 5 of the tracks have the word love in it.
So this review is going to be based on what the albums trying to do, think about love. The production found in this album may be enough to get you to move (As On The Floor) but don't expect much lyrically. Many of the verses consist of simple words and well probably aren't even rapping (in Diddy's case).
I'm going to avoid going track to track on this review so I'll continue on the overall effort. The features range from most of today's "stars". However, the features weren't enough to get over the fact that I didn't believe Diddy really brought it to the project, the two girls pretty much did what they were there to do, sing.
I'm going to cut this one short simply because there's not much more to say. If you know what you want out of music and what you listen to then it's all your personal preference. This album however is far from ground breaking. It falls short from previous efforts from Diddy and more importantly Bad Boy. Last Train To Paris has pretty much one sound from beginning to end. If that's what your into then that's what your into.
FINAL RATING: 4.5/10 On To The Next One
