Albeit, those are the pre-order links for it, so unless the released version gets an alternate tracklisting, it looks like "Bubblin'" won't be on it.

They played Left to Right in an NBA video package and that it didn't move me.
I like Tints, but I understand being underwhelmed by that one too.

The album HAS to be better than these songs indicate, right?

I'm inclined to not listen to any more singles until the project drops and then just listen to it all in context

still really strong effort!

- Dre verse sounds so weird to me. Tip en Kenny kind of underwhelming
- He is spitting much more than i expected
- The singles work better in the context of the album
- Second half better
- Overall vibe is really upbeat and feel good
- Favorite: Saviers Road (9th with that Dre mix? pfff) and the beat switch on brother's keeper. Smile/Petty dope too

Feel like it might still grow on me a lot

Credits are pretty crazy (scroll down):

In response to Reply # 0


          

From the credits he's not mentioned which is slightly disappointing since I know a few months back he was saying he had Madlib on here, even individual stems for Dre to mess around with.

Off first listen the album is good but not on part with Malibu.

He is definitely a better singer than rapper, yet here he seems to be more focused on the rapping aspect. Since Malibu (which I loved), I've thought that the strength of his craft primarily comes with his charisma, great voice and knack to write great melodie/his production - not necessarily his lyrics (even though I'm not saying he is a bad lyricist by any means).The album ends really poorly as well with the last two tracks. That said there is some real heat on here - "the chase" is some fantastic 70s blaxploitation sound track stuff (also Kadhja Bonet is the truth and you should check her out if you haven't). Snoop and Paak sound amazing on "Anywhere" - Snoop sounds like he was born to be over that track. "Smile / Pretty" is gorgeous and the portion of "6 Minutes" where he gets into gun control is great.

Like it has the feel and vibe of a lot of work from the MWTC soundtrack. "21 Jumpstreet" comes to mind immediately, "Who Got Some Gangsta Shit ?" too to a lesser extent.

This and Nipsey's album both should've dropped in June or July.

Unless it's Snoop or Dre west coast'ers shouldn't even drop in winter IMO.

Overall Malibu is better, but the best songs on Oxnard are better than the best songs on Malibu. At least I feel that way right now.

Let's be real, the one-two punch of Malibu and Yes Lawd would be a hard act to follow.

Especially when you finally got some money, a larger recording budget, more noterority, a major label deal, a mega-producer co-sign and loads of expectation placed upon you.

I'd give Oxnard a 7/10. It is not horrible by any means but is markedly less compelling than its predecessor. Not as many highlights either.

I really like the stuff I like. I may never play the stuff I don’t like. But I do that sometimes. Malibu May end up being the best thing he ever does so I am not going to hold that against him.

Doesn't mean it sucks overall, but I had high hopes for this and probably shouldn't have given the Dre, big label, he's kinda famous now reality.

Malibu, Venice, Nxworries are significantly better to me but I am happy for him in the sense that's he's a success now.

The second half is my favorite part of the whole album.

Then I like the q-tip track and the j cole track.

I liked tints as a pre album drop. Also dig the Snoop track as vintage snoop.

Other than that I am waiting for more to grow on me.

This is good news, hopefully it actually comes out reasonably soon. I like how he’s talking about soul.

negative feedback about this album.
.Paak seems like a guy who thrives off the adoration, so I'm sure it's eating him up that Oxnard came and went so fast, didn't make any top albums lists. I wouldn't be surprised if we got a new album this year

Oxnard was an easy fix with some trimming

I revisited recently, and it's not a bad album per se

But there are just full stops at certain points

in particular, the Dre jawns should've been cut from the album

Would've been a home run had he stayed in the 70s funk vibe of the first track...and carried that throughout...I think every other song could have contributed to the cohesiveness

That is to say...if he's going to turn this around and drop an album next month...I'm skeptical that it's just not more of the same

I mean, I don't expect dude went back in the studio and recorded all new songs for a more singularly focused album

I expect to get reworks of songs that didn't make Oxnard and a repeat of the scattered sound

Hope I'm wrong though

In any event, for those that haven't caught dude live

It's a fucking party, and even if he doesn't get back to the status of Malibu...he'll have a career as a live artist.

when you think about it Oxnard is really his only miss and it still has it's moments.

Nas taught me years ago to ignore the songs I don't like and enjoy the hell out of the ones that I do. With that, I was listening to the stuff I dug on Oxnard with joy just last night. I'll be doing that 11 PM Houston time download on Ventura fo sho.

The album's not perfect but I could listen to that song over and over for a week and never get tired of it. That beat is *perfect* for Snoop. So vintage. Such a throwback.

I suspect Dre will still be involved with this project. Hopefully not though.

That is some amazingly quick turnaround though. Quite interesting.

And the take my takeaway from the Esquire interview(in addition to the other interview I referenced above), was that .Paak was feeling the response to Oxnard warranted an "emergency."


>>>>>Did you want to make any changes to Ventura after winning your Grammy and announcing the tour?

I wanted to keep it as incubated as I could 'cause I wanted to keep the vibes with how we felt at the time. I didn't want to over-produce, I didn't want to start second-guessing it, I didn't want to drive myself crazy. I drove myself crazy with Oxnard. That was almost why I was like, I'm about to put over to the side now, like a "break in case of emergency." I did want to get one more song, but I wasn't really stressing, and then it just fell in my lap at the very end with one of my homies.

>>>>>What was it like working with Dr. Dre on the two albums?

With Oxnard, I felt like he wanted to get his chance to work with me. We started making music with him, working with his producers, working with his writers in his studio. We came up with one of the best material, "6 Summers." What else we did in that time? "Sweet Chick," and just lots of tunes. That's when I was like, you know what, I'm going to make album.

It's a learning process for him and with me. I had to compromise a few on the outside, and he's had to. I was learning from him a lot on Oxnard, and allowing myself to open up and be produced and to be more of a vessel. On his journey he's definitely learning all the same things, how to oversee and to make sure the songs were right, and trust in the fact of putting out more content on a regular basis is cool. And if he doesn't understand it, he's always like, I'm a rapper, I'm gonna trust that he knows what he's doing. I love him for that.

He let me have a lot of leeway on Ventura. He was like, it seems like you got it. I spread my wings on the production and on the writing and on these collaborations. Again, very ambitious, working with icons on this one as well. But it was chill working with Dre. Who else you know that will sign with Dre that's putting out this much content in this short of a time?
