Muze PNote Engineers include: Keston Wright, Lamont Hyde, Glove.
Muze PNote The first release on Dr. Dre's label, Aftermath Entertainment, introduces some promising new acts, and gets an immediate boost from the presence of Group Therapy, a supergroup featuring Nas, RBX, Krs-One and B. Real. There's also a great new Dr. Dre track, "Been There Done That."
Muze PNote This is exciting new territory for the man who may be the best producer in hip-hop. Dr. Dre has provided the tracks for some of the most successful acts in hip-hop, including N.W.A. and Snoop Doggy Dogg, and was a bedrock presence on Death Row Records. With PRESENTS... THE AFTERMATH, he moves forward to a label of his own.

Muze PNote Dr. Dre shifted directions drastically halfway through 1996, leaving Death Row Records and abandoning gangsta rap, claiming that he had "Been There, Done That." So, Dre founded a new record label, Aftermath, and built an artist roster consisting entirely of new, unproven talent. He also decided not to concentrate on rap, signing urban R&B acts as well as hip-hop. Aftermath's initial release was the various-artists compilation Dr. Dre Presents...The Aftermath and one listen proves that Dre wasn't kidding when he said he wasn't interested in gangsta anymore. There are a number of rappers on The Aftermath, even a handful of hardcore rappers, but nothing fits into the standard G-funk template. The true revelation of the album is Dre's skill for urban R&B and soul, all of which sounds fresh and exciting compared to several of the fairly pedestrian hip-hop tracks. Despite the success of these urban productions, none of the actual performers make much of an impact -- the tracks are impressive only because they demonstrate Dre's musical versatility and skill. In fact, the two tracks that really stand out -- Dre's stately, sexy "Been There Done That" and the powerful "East Coast/West Coast Killas," which features cameos by B-Real, KRS-One, Nas, and RBX -- are a combination of terrific production and personality, which is usually what results in great singles. But that doesn't mean that The Aftermath is a washout. Instead, it's a promising fresh start for Dre that is full of potential and enough great music to make it a vital listen. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (12/13/96, p.80)
- "...A compilation that hints at the diverse things to come from Aftermath's young talents, the album features both rap and R&B....Mostly, Dre stays behind the boards, laying down the deep bass and off-kilter keys that are the foundation of his signature G-Funk sound..." - Rating: B
