But it's under these conditions that De La offered an album that was not only sonically excellent and creative and pure, but an album with the year's most relevant and prescient message. The stakes were indeed high.

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.

By turns sarcastic, subtle, and brutally honest, Stakes Is High is De La Soul at the peak of their powers. A masterpiece, it functions as a State of the Union for hiphop in the mid-nineties.It begins with a series of sound bites, a collection of memories. Where were you when you first heard Criminal Minded? As the album progresses, a diverse menagerie of voices and characters raise red flags about the state of hiphop culture. The production is somehow both rich and spare at the same time. There are heavy beats, and light touches. Many of the tracks have musical/melodic/rhythmic bridges, adding a lovely complication. Samples from Jeff Beck to The Commodores are used tastefully in concert with custom beats, never overwhelming anything with nostalgia. Lyrically all three use rapier insight and humor along with journalistic observation of their business. It is some of the strongest work from the golden age of the genre. We finish with a sound bite, back to the beginning of the cycle. Where were you when you first heard 3 Feet High and Rising? Stakes Is High is Midnight Marauders with greater heft. One of the best albums of the 90s.
