De La Soul: Smell the Da.I.S.Y.

It’s a blast to hear Posdnous whispering the chorus to “The Magic Number” – but what this ad hoc remix approach really does is get you to focus on Dilla’s beats. And they’re tremendous.

J Dilla: Dillanthology 3

Some of this hip-hop deity's finest productions thrown together on a single disc. And as great as they are, this compilation is more a gateway than a final destination.

J Dilla: Dillanthology 2

Dilla’s strength was not that he merely incorporated disparities into a single sound, but that that sound felt natural.

J Dilla: Jay Stay Paid

This might be a "good" record by comparison, but it just doesn't stack up to Dilla's impressive legacy.

Various Artists: Dillanthology Vol. 1

Although it offers nothing new, this is a fine introductory piece for new or unacquainted J Dilla listeners.
