    This is a great album that I fear will not get the recognition it deserves. Diddy doesn't skimp on any part of this album. Tons of great original productions and lyrics will make your drive to the clubs pretty fun.

    Allot of people hate on Diddy. I am not a huge Diddy fan, as in him as a person, my thoughts on him and his lyrical credibility are pretty neutral. But, you cannot deny his musical talent. This album's production is fantastic. He does not follow radio trends. He carves his own sound out that still fits in with popular music today. To me, this album tramples Kanye's album in terms of production and listenability and overall actual enjoyment of listening to the music. Press Play was also an amazing album, this one is a great follow up. Thanks for this Diddy and Dirty Money! Great work! Expand

    This album is one of my favorite of all time. It may one day be looked back on a classic and a revolutionary merger of hip-hop music with european techno/house elements, but for now it is the most unpopular and overlooked album ever released by a major musical act (I dare say, Diddy's name might have hurt the performance of this album). There is not one song on here that is not good and there are only 5 songs out of 15 that are not EXCELLENT. Even the bonus Itunes tracks (16 and 17) are EXCELLENT (whereas most bonus tracks on albums are needless additions/marketing ploys).

    The audience for this album didn't exist at the time it was released and might still be nascent. There are some INCREDIBLE performances on this album by EVERYONE on it (and this was a star studded album). This is way ahead of its time. Just listen to all hip-hop/r&b as well as dance music released that year and before: there is NOTHING like this album on the market in 2010. If it is remembered years down the line, then this review will be a testament to the fact that is was a relative flop and no one except the most out there people really got this album when it was released.

    It's easily the best work Diddy's been involved with in his entire career.

    Crucially though, what Diddy lacks in eloquence he makes up for in pop sensibility, which here keeps edgier elements the right side of radio friendly.

    Despite the array of producers lined up--Including Danja, Darkchild, Polow da Don and Swizz Beatz--Diddy has corralled their work into a tight, coherent whole that's absolutely packed with ideas and creativity.
