All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
With his colleague Capone, Noreaga released an exciting debut album, The War Report, in 1997. Shortly after its release, Capone was sent to jail, leaving Noreaga to fend for himself on the follow-up. N.O.R.E. doesn't quite live up to the expectations set by The War Report, mainly because Capone is absent, but it often hits head-spinning high notes. Noreaga lined up an impressive team of guest rappers -- Nas, Mase, Kool G Rap, Cam'ron, Big Punisher, and Busta Rhymes, among others, are all present, and most contribute some great, hard-hitting raps. Still, the whole thing adds up to the less than the sum of its parts. Maybe the thrilling interplay and fresh beats ...

Maybe the thrilling interplay and fresh beats on The War Report raised hopes too high, but N.O.R.E. doesn't transcend expectations like you may anticipate. Instead, it simply delivers the goods. That does make for some great listening, but it's hard not to think that Noreaga is capable of greatness, not just merely good work.

    YEARS LATER...STILL FIRE!

    Noreaga is one of the most consistent and versatile artists in hip-hop today. He showed by having two different record deals at once. He is independent now so be on the lookout for nore later this summer or the fall. Sales don't ever determine how hot a record can be, so just listen for quality hip-hop from a down to earth dude(i had the opportunity to interview nore twice, good dude!!)
