    Aceyalone serves terribly as a lyricist, Rjd2 shows potential as a beat maker but this is far from his work on Deadringer or 8,000,000 stories

    Ace is horrible, needs to return to his pre millenium self, Rj is decent but only shows hints of genius, the album's two best songs are solomon jones and a sunday morning mystery, the only song where we don't have to here ace rapping

  1. More than a few productions provide the type of slick, West Coast grind that allows Aceyalone to play the Lothario but still sound like he's satirizing the lover-man archetype.

    If Magnificent City is occasionally over-friendly-sounding... well, so what? [Mar 2006, p.138]

    Aceyalone's deft merging of bookishness and braggadocio is a rare find. [17 Feb 2006, p.79]
