  1. This is Ghostface's best album.
  2. 91
    Toning down his oddball style and ramping up his storytelling, he drops a pusher’s odyssey as developed and cinematic as any Scorsese joint.
  3. The scenarios he recounts are as detailed and off-the-wall as ever, elaborate screenplays laid out with a vocal style that's ceaselessly fluid and never abrasive.
  4. Ghost continues his tradition of being the Wu's most consistant soloist.
  5. 80
    Strange, spooky and brilliant. [Apr 2006, p.114]
  6. Another great release from the most important emcee in hip-hop.
  7. Fishscale's tail-end reeks ("Jellyfish," "Big Girl," "Momma"), but then first cuts are always the deepest.

    Love this! Ghostface at his best, with fantastic rhymes and grooves. A fantastic album by possibly the most talented rapper in the world! 10/10! Of course generally you'll have to be a hip-hop fan, but seeing as I am one, I found it amazing. Expand
