Stakes Is high was De La Soul’s first album to not be produced be Prince Paul. Rather than having Prince Paul, a professional producer, produce the album De La Soul decided to take a crack at producing themselves. Regrettably, it did not turn out well. The production was noticeably sketchy on all tracks and the sad thing is some better production could have provided the zest this album so desperately needs. In summary, this CD has overall decent lyrics, is not memorable, has little to no playback value, a lot of filler, no really memorable tracks and lacking production. It’s a classic example.
