This is a typical Scarface album. Normally, a statement like this would elicit yawns. For an artist like Scarface, it brings a smile to my face. You get the same thing from every solid Scarface release. A short musical intro and outro, which border 10-12 solid tracks displaying the vivid storytelling and dark pianos, violins, and other instrumental sounds that take you into his world. I would put this Scarface release right after The Dairy and The Fix. It amazes me (in a good way) that he can continue to put out solid albums, even though there always seemed to be some drama going on with either The Geto Boys or Rap-a-lot. There’s some comfort in getting exactly what you were expecting and still being happy with it.
