  1. Once through, we realize Ideal Lives does not feel unified, which is exactly what makes it so interesting but also so difficult to fully embrace.
  2. The songs are all snappy with their rhythmic play and potentially memorable with their stop-start hooks.

    The monotone delivery on Ideal Lives undercuts the urgency characteristic of Rahim's best performances. [Sep 2006, p.81]
