  1. There's nothing boring about the tracks on Ego Trippin' though, from the hard hitting Neptunes produced "Sets Up" to the soft-spoken Polow Da Don produced "Why Did You Leave Me."
  2. Snoop Dogg's ninth album is perhaps his most progressive one to date.
  3. At its best Ego Trippin' is intelligent, sly and full of the easy brilliance which put Snoop on the top of the pile in the first place. At its worst it makes thong-filled DVD "Snoop Dogg's Diary Of A Pimp" look like high art. He truly is his own worst enemy.
  4. Cramming in more than twenty tracks, Ego Trippin' grows weaker as it drifts away from head-spinning collages into generic slow jamz.
  5. "Why Did You Leave Me' and 'Can't Say Goodbye' are some grown-up songs, and Snoop probably has a whole album of them somewhere in him. But as long as the pothead-pimp shtick keeps selling, we'll probably never hear it.

    The West Coast stalwart's ninth album doesn't entirely make good on 'Seduction''s wacky promise. [Apr 2008, p.82]
  7. Ego Trippin' is a subdued comeback from this once hot rapper.

    Ok, if you want this album to be like Doggystyle, then dont **** when its not. I think critics cant keep up with Snoop, all his albums areOk, if you want this album to be like Doggystyle, then dont **** when its not. I think critics cant keep up with Snoop, all his albums are rated poorly, yet somehow he is critically acclaimed and has maintained a steady following since his first album....metacritic is useless in actually assessing music it seems.Songs like Press Play are very good, some filler like ALL artists....

    Only 3 songs including Eruption, Gangsta Like Me, Life at Da Party are real good, but others fail to even level up with the level of Doggs Only 3 songs including Eruption, Gangsta Like Me, Life at Da Party are real good, but others fail to even level up with the level of Doggs rap like Why Did U Leave Me and Can't Say Good bye.

    What a terribly disappointing album by Snoop. More than half of the songs are fillers, and the songs that are or meant to be singles What a terribly disappointing album by Snoop. More than half of the songs are fillers, and the songs that are or meant to be singles aren't particularly great either. Sexual Eruption has a catchy tune, but I can't get over Snoop singing with vox. Expand
