    Acey always delivers quality sounding lyrics even if the content is a little devoid of original flavor. I find this effort a success but not Acey's best joint by far. As for production... Dope! Love the variation in RJ's style... always original and very reminiscent of Prince Paul from a creativity perspective! Abz

    Solid, solid cd. Gets better as you listen further. Rhymes and beats all tie together. Not the best work from either one, but plenty good enough.

    Good beats, but Ace is a little bit lacking on the lyrics.

  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]
