Snoop Dogg - Bible of Love
(Gospel, Hip hop)
You have to respect Snoop Dogg. Not only is he one of the most important 90s rappers, and a staple for west coast hip hop, but he also does whatever the fuck he wants at all times. It feels like Snoop was just like "I'mma make a gospel album" on a whim, and then bought a bunch of stock gospel music and occasionally added some vocals to it. Gospel music can be great, but this is really generic, boring and characterless gospel with very little of Snoop's trademark charisma sprinkled in, (which is what frustrated me most, if Snoop was more present, it would be far more unique). It would be tolerable if it was a quirky little 10 track album, but Book of Love is 2 hours, 15 minutes long. 32 tracks. Let that sink in. After the hour mark I was bored to tears. I will never listen to this again. Charlie Wilson kills it though, as always.
