Hey all. I’ve been recently looking at StudioLeaks and TRTN forums and have realised that many people dislike ‘The Gates Mixed Plate’. I was extremely surprised at this, as I LOVED TGMP. All the songs have a party feel and I just really enjoyed the album. So I was confused in WHY people HATE TGMP. The following list at the bottom will display my opinion on each song;
O.G. : Solid track, was O.K.
FU Pay Me: One of the best tracks on the album.
Gamer: Awesome song, enjoyed in very much.
Jumpin’ Jax: Great song, also one of the best tracks on the album.
Keep It One Hunit: Another Great song on the album.
Pow Pow: Great song, and I love the hook.
Harvey Dent: Good Song, flow of the song is catchy.
What’s Next: A bit slow, but still a great song.
Afterparty: Chill out song, very good.
Too Many Girls: Another catchy song.
Pu Wah Wah: Catchy song, but annoying music.
KC Tea: Meh… its O.K.
Oh You Didn’t Know: One of the first songs I liked on the album, very catchy aswell.
Far Out: Beat of the song is amazing and the vocals are insane, Best of on the album.
Paper: Great song.
Loud: Another song which is in my top 5 of the album.
Need More Angels: Worst song of the album IMO.
Doin It: Meh… nothin special.
What’s Yo Psycho: Great song, the chick on this song went hard.
So that’s a short opinion on each song of the album. So I still don’t understand why TGMP was flamed for being bad, it was really good album, definitely in my Top 5 albums by Tech N9ne.
Thanks for your responses. Peter.
Don’t Flame me because of my opinion on certain songs, its my opinion on the album not yours.And NO I’m not trolling.
I liked it as well, wouldn’t be anywhere in my top Tech albums by any means (he’s made better) but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a good album at all. I enjoyed listening to it and had a few songs I still listen to.
Songs I liked: O.G. (possibly my favorite)
FU Pay Me
What’s Next (loved Craig Smith on this one)
Oh You Didn’t Know (Irv was awesome)
Loud Need More Angels (I loved this song)
Didn’t care for: Pow Pow (Liked the hook though)
Too Many Girls
Puh Wah Wah
Doin It (hated it)
But I liked enough songs to make it a pretty good album in my mind.
It wasn’t a horrible album just no where near as good as his others. When I heard What’s Yo Psycho I had high hopes for it as I’m sure lots of people did. The content just wasn’t what I expected it to be. Like I said tho, not a bad album, but it will certainly go down as his worst collabos album.
I don’t hate it, but it’s definitely my least favorite of all of the Collabos. It had it’s moments, Harvey Dent was pretty cool…and Far Out was killer; there was a few, but all together and coming off the heels of K.O.D. (+Lost Scripts of) it was disappointment.
If you take out Too Many Girls, Afterparty, and What’s Next you have a great album but those 3 killed the tempo of the album for me. I still listen to a lot of GMP quite a bit. Far Out is one of my favorites, that track goes hard!
