  1. A CD packed with the sort of undeniable pleasures only the most churlish thug could deny. [15 Apr 2005, p.78]
  2. The flow is intact, the rhymes are well written, and even though Smith hasn't crossed that line from pop friendly into hardcore gangsta... he's definitely a bit more rugged this time out.
  3. Somewhere along the way, Smith lost his musical appeal, be it via constant, blatant commercialism or simply a decline in skills. Now, it seems, he's found the qualities that made him such a joy in the first place; the only question remaining is whether anyone is still listening.

    It's ultimately unconvincing. [Jun 2005, p.115]
  5. His nice-guy-with-a-retrograde-flow shtick is fast running out of steam.
  6. The lamest album that'll be released this year.

    People underrate Will Smith enormously, but the first hip-hop album I ever heard was Big Willie Style & since then, I've been hooked to hip-hop. This album is just as awesome as Big Willie Style was (and still is). He's got range in subject matter, flow, beats. He comes at every song differently. This album kept me on my toes beginning to end. Expand

    Will Smith once again shows that he can flow, is more talented then any of the wannbe be rappers today with their cookie cutter sell out crap. Will Smith is easily one of the most talented artist out there, that surely cannot be said about 99.9% of todays offerings in the hip hop world. Thankfully Will is still around. Expand

    One of Will Smith's greatest efforts. a fun album, a lot more "adult" than last efforts, but truly a great album. Best album of 2005 so far. Dont listen to the critics.This album is highly underrated. MUST LISTEN to "Mr.Niceguy", "I Wish i Made That/Swagga" and "Pump Ya Brakes". Expand

    Just plain good hip hop: slick rhymes, good stories, nice beats. What real hip hop is about. The songs are a combination of angry/funny, favorites: Mr. Niceguy, I wish I made that, lost and found, here he come, pump ya breaks. Expand

    Good album, with good beats and some good lyrics. Ok so he isn't gangsta, who cares its a good album, different from everyone claiming their gangsta's. Whether you like the guy or not he is talented and has been around for years, more than i can say for some rappers who leave the rap game before they even started. Expand
