  1. Curtis seems surprisingly modest. The album is neither as contagious as "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" (apparently it's possible to have an entire album stuck in your head) nor as devious as "The Massacre."
  2. It's a solid performance, that is both better and worse than it could have been.
  3. In the end, Curtis is entertaining but only impressive in that 50 can run in place and still be on top.
  4. Though the album is good, for an artist of 50 Cent's caliber, it's not great.
  5. 50's new album is a blatant rehash--a bottom-line sequel that insults the same audience it mindlessly panders to.
  6. Curtis doesn't sound like it was much fun to make, and it isn't much fun to listen to.
  7. A 55-minute mess called Curtis, undoubtedly one of this year’s worst releases.

    This is garbage an example of at least parts of hip hop being dead. Let support the innovative, Fifty is so tired man and he's not This is garbage an example of at least parts of hip hop being dead. Let support the innovative, Fifty is so tired man and he's not trying anymore. He's rich now and knows whatever he puts out will sell and people are stupid enough to keep buying even though its not quality. Expand

    I'm from queens ny and i can honestly say all of our prayers have been answered, he isn't gonna outsell kanye and hopefully this I'm from queens ny and i can honestly say all of our prayers have been answered, he isn't gonna outsell kanye and hopefully this waste of life truly retires like he said he would. him, eminem and dre should never touch music again, they have no idea what dignity means, they would sell their souls as quick as anybody who supported them would buy it.
