  1. It's nice to see him seek stronger production; beatmeisters like RJD2 and Joey Chavez provide supple soundscapes for the Ace Man to rock over. But ol' reliable Acey kinda forgot what makes him one of the essential MCs of the last decade: ridiculous wordplay.

    Just feels stiff and over-produced. [Aug 2003, p.88]

    The beats--never a selling point for Acey's albums--don't have the verve to lift leaden lines. [13 Jun 2003, p.96]

    Sadly few of his spiels impress solely on the strength of their content. [#235, p.55]
