    With the exception of only a handful of the 18 tracks, Mos' MO seems to be one of either hips and haws or disturbingly bad rap-rock. Buy the "Sex, Love & Money" single instead ? it also includes "Ghetto Rock" ? and save $15.

    In a world where 50 Cent name-drops [Talib] Kweli, Mos Def wants to keep the line between indie hip-hop and major-label rap nice and blurry. [Oct 2004, p.112]
  2. It’s largely half-baked in its execution.
  3. Although Mos Def sometimes finds the casual groove he's looking for, this disc is surprisingly dreary and oddly abstract. [1 Nov 2004]
