Redman's second album, along with a lot of the other albums that you'll find here, is one of the joints in his discography that rarely ever gets the love that it deserves. Some say the production all sounds the same. Others say that Redman isn't at his best lyrically. I'd say both charges are completely false. Red switched his style up from the first LP (Whut! Thee Album) and he was just as fresh. I think the idea was to make a bass heavy album with a smoked out theme to it. If you ask me, he did exactly that and sprinkled in a little wit to boot. Just like any Def Squad release from the 90's, Dare Iz A Darkside is guaranteed satisfaction.
