  1. for a few overblown performances and quasi-epic productions, It Ain't Safe No More finds Busta Rhymes with the same sure grip on his distinctive personality.
  2. Like its predecessor, Genesis, this album is sonically superior to most in the marketplace.

    Busta again shows the versatility of his flow, but it's the complexity of the words that may surprise you. [Jan 2003, p.127]
  4. The fact that experimental, abstract beats have become so popular is partly down to him, but now that everybody's doing it, he has to do it more, or better, or different.
  5. 60
    As unoriginal as his previous five, yet still entertaining. [Mar 2003, p.106]
  6. When it works, it's exhilarating, but elsewhere the poor lamb sounds a touch jaded. [Feb 2003, p.96]
  7. A tragically mediocre album full of lackluster arrangements and inexplicably short songs. [13 Dec 2002, p.83]
