Snoop Dogg is indisputably one of Hip-Hop’s greatest talents. Unfortunately its been more than a decade since the heady days when Death Row ruled the West Coast, and in that time Snoop has also proved himself to be one of Hip-Hop’s most notorious underachievers. The dazzling improvisational brilliance that Snoop displayed on his Death Row releases has never disappeared entirely, but it's appeared only in brief flashes on a string of albums undone by lazy production and bloated run times. But on The Blue Carpet Treatment Snoop seems reinvigorated in the wake of the massively successful Rhythm & Gangsta. If Rhythm & Gangsta bought crossover success with it’s laidback sound and commercial sheen, then The Blue Carpet Treatment is Snoop’s chance to show fans that he is still capable of crafting a West Coast classic without making embarrassing concessions to the pop market. The opening swagger of “Think About It” sees Snoop spitting tongue-twisting non-sequitors with a verve and charisma that he hasn’t displayed since Doggystyle. The production here is almost universally strong, with producers like West Coast veteran DJ Pooh and relative newcomer Frequency crafting beats that nod towards Snoop’s G-Funk steeped heyday without sounding antiquated or derivative. The Blue Carpet Treatment is the Snoop Dogg album that West Coast heads have been anticipating for years. Its been a long wait, but well worth it.

raw and very aggressive
The rebirth of West Coast hip hop is complete with the release of Snoop's "Blue Carpet Treatment". The sound and attitude is undeniably Snoop. It is raw and very aggressive. This is an older Snoop. Yet he still sounds fresh and hungry. "Crazy" to "Vato" to "That's That". Those three songs alone are worth buying the whole album. Enjoy.
Get 'em Snoop!
This Cd is banging. I just dont know how this guy maintains the same elements in all his albums but makes it all sound sound fresh and new. Snoop did not let anyone down with this album. The songs are what you expect from snoop plus so much more.
