    Unfortunately, not as good as the previous albums--something missing. My Life is the star, while plenty of dogs and many mediocre tracks. Overall, compared to Kanye, Common, and Lupe the gansta act is played out. Not enough originality for my liking.

  1. Add the "Jam on It" sample producer Nottz lays on "Ya Heard," the sultry backing track Scott Storch designed for "Let Us Live," and a superstar guest list that's a mile long, and this scattershot album is easy to recommend despite its flaws.
  2. The Game goes surprisingly mellow in comparison to his first two efforts.
  3. Problem is, much of this record is just Game keeping up with the Joneses: everything you'd expect from a 2008 rap album is here (Lil' Wayne guest spot; boring, '80s-styled Kanye track), and the stuff that makes him unique seems harder than ever to get at.
