  1. Can the silliest album of the year also be the smartest and the sexiest?
  2. This is essentially an R&B record with Ghostface sounding a bit like Barry White on a bender. Tracks such as 'Let’s Stop Playin’,' featuring a typically lush John Legend, are very good, with Ghost’s lyrical skills as fluid as the track he rhymes over.
  3. It’s clairvoyantly obvious that Ghostface Killah’s ideas are abound. Forever flourishing, there is so much to love about an album as playfully awesome as this one.
  4. More or less, Ghostdini: The Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City manages to strike a balance between both his personas: the violent, self-indulgent Shaky Dog of early Wu Tang, and the at once more humorous and reflective Ghost of more recent years.
  5. 70
    Even the raw stuff has the humanizing detail that keeps Ghost interesting years after we've grown accustomed to his imagesplaying Joycean flow.
  6. It's hard not to inflate the rating of a record with some truly incredible joints, yet it's difficult to ignore the two-thirds filler combined with Ghostface's least complicated rhymes in years.
  7. This project was D.O.A. from the moment Ghost announced it a year back, and hip-hop fans should consider themselves lucky that there’s at least a few salvageable moments in Wizard of Poetry.
