  1. The duo's finest body of work since their 1995 masterpiece, The Infamous. [28 Apr 2006, p.135]
  2. 75
    Instead of the poppy makeover many anticipated, the Mobb's seventh album is a curious blend of gunz-money anthems, G-Unit-ized sex romps, and visions of the great beyond.
  3. In terms of their long career of certified bangers it comes as a slight disappointment.
  4. Mobb Deep often sounds like a guest at its own party.
  5. If Mobb Deep didn’t have their own history, their own discography, and their own mythos, contributions from 50 and friends wouldn’t be a hindrance. But here, those contributions become intrusions that keep the Mobb from telling their own stories, flashing their own green, getting their own groupies.
  6. The duo's seventh album sees an invasion of unnecessary guest stars, such as Lloyd Banks and Yayo, and a disappointing lyrical turn that celebrates monotonous Detroit staples like guns, cash and bumps.
  7. It's hard to imagine another album in 2006 doing a worse job of justifying its existence than Blood Money.
