  • Summary: B2K's Omarion joins with rapper Bow Wow in their first album together.

  1. With Face Off, they unite again to serenade lady fans--this time with a whole album of raunchier tunes--and their charm proves undeniable.

    Face Off is more fun than forced, full of exuberant dance ditties and training -bra snapping lullabies. [Feb 2008, p.86]
  3. A couple of tracks sound derivative, but for the most part fans of the duo will embrace this album as well as the twosome's maturing sound.
  4. 60
    Filling the shoes of Jay-Z and R. Kelly--collaborators on two albums--is no easy feat, but thanks to slick production and stay-in-your-head melodies, the duo nearly rises to the challenge.
  5. In stretches, it's perfectly entertaining, yet most of it goes in one ear and out the other, not leaving much in the memory.
  6. Sure, your tweenage little sister will probably love this album, but I’m sorry, if she was even partially aware of hiphop and R&B music for the last decade or so, she’d know how much pilfered production and recycled rap is crafted here.

    For the longest time, I wanted to see more collaboration albums but this totally proves how the idea can go wrong. Bow Wow should stick to For the longest time, I wanted to see more collaboration albums but this totally proves how the idea can go wrong. Bow Wow should stick to guest appearances. The album would have fared much better with more Omarion and less Bow Wow. Overall, they are far from the Best of Both Worlds. Expand

    "Face Off" is absolutely HORRIBLE! Stupid ass lyrics, lifeless production. Bow Wow is typically lame. I am big fan of Omarion, but sadly, his "Face Off" is absolutely HORRIBLE! Stupid ass lyrics, lifeless production. Bow Wow is typically lame. I am big fan of Omarion, but sadly, his talents were completely wasted on this monstracity. Someone at SonyBMG had to be on some serious drugs to pair up the talented (Omarion) with the UNtalented (Bow Wow). I hope Omarion won't embarrass himself in this capacity again. P-U through and through. Expand
