Re-Entry (Townsend Records)
By: Anthony Davis
Marly Marl's new album is yet another in the "Beat Generation" series by BBE. This album shows that Marly Marl still has it after all these years. This joint has tight production and great beats, and Marly Marl knows how to pick out guest artists. Check out "Three's Company" where Big Daddy Kane shows that he too is still in the game. Although most of the album is pretty down-tempo, there are still a few club hits in here -- particularly "Spazz" featuring Solo of Screwball. There are also a few great beat-only tracks like the deftly ominous "Lost Beat," and the funkdefied "Live Ova Beats." While nothing on this album is bad, as a whole the album's starts a lot stronger then it finishes. But, there is something in here for everybody, and a lot of stuff in here will appeal to fans of the old school. And if you like this album, you should probably also check out some of the other Beat Generation series, like Petrstrumentals by Pete Rock.
