  1. At 20 tracks and nearly 80 minutes, Eardrum is both too much and too little, never quite understanding exactly what it needs to be.
  2. There are enough different feels and flows to dazzle listeners with Kweli's dexterity, but some judicious editing could have produced something perhaps even more impressive.
  3. 70
    Kweli’s rigid delivery and obsession with self-empowerment remain liabilities.
