Malice 'N Wonderland
Label: Capitol Records
Malice N Wonderland finds everybody's favorite dog(g) trying to keep up with current trends -- including collaborating with The-Dream on two tracks and Soulja Boy on another. He still has a million-dollar flow, and though the album sounds generic and even tossed-off, it's not without its pleasures. "Secrets" returns to the bouncing G-Funk rider music that Snoop perfected, and the synth ambience makes "Luv Drunk" surprisingly delicate and soulful, even as Snoop raps about putting his "rat-tat-tat in her boom-boom-pow."
