  1. There are songs on here so thorough and ill they'll send a chill down your spine and raise the hair on your neck.

    Though Nightmare doesn't match their classics, you can definitely call this a comeback. [Aug 2004, p.146]
  3. They've sounded stuck and overconfident before, but this old-school-styled, true hip-hop album finds the Mobb hungry again.
  4. So what's the problem with Mobb Deep in 2004?... The answer is every song not produced by Havoc.
  5. While it's got to be said 'Amerika's Nightmare' certainly has its moments over the space of a complete album the familiar themes and reference points start to feel a shade tired and predictable.
  6. 60
    Where they once spun enveloping hood verite, here they just list gangsta signifiers without building a world from them. [Aug 2004, p.136]
  7. 42
    Big-name cameos... can't disguise the fact that this is one more rote chapter in the infamous Queensbridge duo's twilight. [Oct 2004, p.120]
