  • Summary: This is the third album for the Minnesota rapper, who is also a member of punk band Building Better Bombs.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 6 out of 8
  2. Negative: 0 out of 8
  1. P.O.S. has raised the bar again. [Mar 2009, p.114]
  2. P.O.S. has created something that sounds vibrant and alive, and stretches the narrow limits of the genre.
  3. P.O.S. must have known he had a near-classic on his claws with Never Better.
  4. From front to back, the album's an acquired taste, and even if it's not the big paradox that an album mixing punk ethics with rap virtuosity might risk becoming, it doesn't have a universal appeal, especially for heads leery of anything that might approach the misnomer of "emo rap."
  5. Even if it gets a bit bedroom experimentalist, POS is Buck 65 with balls, and has more ideas and soul in one cut than an entire Fiddy wet shit.
  6. It's a tumbler, a series of good thoughts that get lost in development.
