SNOOP DOGG Bush

Columbia

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSIC REVIEWS - JIM CAR­ROLL

That Phar­rell Wil­liams was in the pro­ducer’s chair bodes well for the new al­bum from the ever-lan­guid Dog­gfa­ther. Wil­liams has al­ways known how to get the best out of the rap­per over the years (see Drop It Like

It’s Hot, from his back pages), and there’s much on Bush to ap­plaud in a sim­i­lar vein. What’s strik­ing is the Dogg’s con­tin­u­ing em­brace of the funk, though the low-slung, loose-limbed, slow-mo­tion, heavy­weight bass which made his re­cent 7 Days of Funk col­lab­o­ra­tion with Dam Funk such a joy doesn’t make the cut here. In­stead, Wil­liams has the Dogg slink­ing around the G-funk moth­er­ship for Peaches N

Cream and So Many Pros, both full of slick, full-fat grooves and strong hooks, while the Ste­vie Won­der ex­pe­ri­ence is writ large on

Cal­i­for­nia Roll.
