  1. The only complaint one could have about this CD is that it actually may be slightly overloaded with guests, meaning the deep and dusty voice that made him the Wu's first breakout solo star occasionally gets overshadowed.

    Still a nimble rapper, he's copped his best beats in years. [Oct 2006, p.142]
  3. His best work since 1999's Blackout.
  4. 4:21 shows him exhibiting more vigour and imagination.
  5. 60
    Introspection clearly suits him. [Nov 2006, p.119]
  6. 60
    Each release generates one or two hits and is never regarded as a classic, but 4:21...The Day After may be an exception. [Sep 2006, p.137]
  7. Meth serves up relatively safe, occasionally dope, and consistently scruffy boom-bap.

    While there are quite a few "skippables" on this, the core of the album is fiery and gives Meth a great backdrop to lash out at critics and the music industry in general. At it's best it's a great return to form for Meth. Certainly worth getting. Expand
