  1. A handful of similar tracks suffer from this same problem of ambition over inspiration, but for every miss, there's a hit.
  2. For every track that finds him returning with full force to the tongue-twisting ways of his youth ('Don't Believe 'Em') or addressing tabloid gossip with refreshing honesty ('If You Don't Know'), there's a blatant trend grab like the Auto-Tune-abusing 'Hustler's Anthem '09.'
  3. Busta Rhymes has finally made an album that works from beginning to end--it is just a shame that the lack of crossover hit singles will doubtless leave BOMBS a slightly unappreciated gem.
