at last - the first dr dre album in 14 years; and its well worth the wait.

having given up waiting for 'detox', we felt we had lost hip hop's most influential producer to the business of making headphones. then the announcement of a dre-made soundtrack to an eagerly awaited forthcoming nwa biopic. 'compton' announces itself with a cinematic orchestra and a short economic history of dre's hometown, before diving headlong into an incendiary set of hard tracks concerning crime, poverty and dre's reminiscences about the la suburb which he and the rest of nwa put on the world's cultural map. guest appearances predictably proliferate from the likes of eminem, kendrick lamar, jill scott, xibit, dre's new protege anderson paak and, of course, snoop. but the album is focussed, powerful, and - notwithstanding the typical misogyny - more politicised than anyone could have expected. "It's no Detox. It's something realer, and better" - rolling stone. "a surprisingly vivid soundtrack of frustration" - the guardian.
