  • Summary: The Boston rapper releases his third full-length album featuring Bahamadia, Dumbtron, and Vinnie Paz as guest artists.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 11
  2. Negative: 0 out of 11
  1. The end result is an album that doesn't pull its punches, a direct message to the people with enough rhythm to get some movement out of stiff limbs while we dance away the recession blues. [May 2009, p.123]
  2. The production throughout is more soulful and seamless than on previous efforts.
  3. It is totally listenable and, to relay a personal anecdote, sounded highly appropriate at a recent social gathering.
  4. Lif trades in narrative for an erratic set of points that pull from the panoply of rap ire while staking out little new ground.
  5. This follow-up boasts some vibrant garage funk reminiscent of fellow Bostonian, and sometime collaborator, Edan. [Jul 2009, p.122]
  6. With its unsettling synthesizers and ghostly echoes, these crafty beats capture America's shattereed psyche far more gracefully than Lif's hyperbolic diatribes. [Spring 2009, p.77]
