I listened to it again recently, and while I still enjoy it I can't believe how bad the lyrics are on most of the album.

The one criticism I have is that it's a pretty homogenous record, and you're right, the lyrics are of their time, I think (if thats what you meant). When people look back on it I think they'll see a reaction to what was going on at the time, not so much an album that still has total relevance today.

While I enjoy some of the "other" tracks (8 Ball, I Ain't Tha 1, Dopeman), some of them are just awful (Something 2 Dance 2, Quiet on the Set).

I even kinda like 'Express Yourself,' though it's positive message rings completely false in the context of the album. It was clearly a bid for airtime (it has no cussing), and it actually sort of worked; it's the only NWA video I've seen played on MTV. Also love the irony of Dre rapping "I don't smoke weed."

Agree that the opening trio is among the best ever; those songs are flat out revolutionary and still rank among hip hop's greatest. I do think that hurts the rest of the songs on the album, which I'd grade overall as average. But those first three solidified 'Straight Outta Compton' as a landmark, in much the same way that Anarchy in the UK/God Save the Queen/Pretty Vacant certified the legacy of the Sex Pistols (tho I think Never Mind the Bollocks is a stronger album as a whole).

If I don't get the chance to piss or spit on somebody, I'm going to have had a disappointing evening. No homo, B.

Fact: yelling "Free Earl" at a party will be misconstrued as yelling "Free Bird" and will result in drunk nostalgics putting on Lynrd Skynyrd.

It was 3+ hours of some heinous DJ, 30 minutes of some dumb-ass named GLC who claimed to be from the South Side, and then solo sets by Jim Jones (courageously awful, and eventually, if lightly, booed), Juelz (sounded really good doing "his" tracks from the Cam'ron records), and Killa, who was both a little bit heavier-set (same goes for Juelz) than in the old days and in solid form.

After that, they all got together and did a run-through of the big Dipset (ie, Cam'ron) tracks that put them on the map--"Hey Ma," "Oh Boy," "Dipset Anthem," a scorching "More Gangsta Music," "Dipset Forever," etc.. Also did a solid version of "Salute," last year's reunion track. The Dipset songs were notable both for still being really great examples of the rare collision of the chipmunk soul aesthetic and hard-ass-core gangsta rap and for featuring Jim Jones standing around and doing nothing, because, in his own words, "Man, I ain't got no verses on these songs, man! Fuck? Yo, Cam, lemme get yours on the next one, right?"
