The shining aptly showcases all of the production styles that found throughout dilla's catalog. Songs such as the common-featured e=mc2 and geek down feature the extraterrestrial bounce that dilla leaned toward late in his career. While so far so good and dime piece (remix) respectively offer common and d'angelo, and dwele the type of jazzy, subdued grooves that he laid for soul artists in the prime of his career. He showcases his trademark ability to breathe enthusiastic life into soul samples on love and baby, and he shows his precise ear for percussion by concocting a complex brew of snares, bass drums, and tailor-made hand claps for black thought to spit over on love movin. This album serves as a testament to the fact that legends never die.
