    This album falls flat, especially after his latest mixtape, A Loose Quarter, was so good. While, yes, the production is awful and the songs in general are just bad, the worst part about the album is that the best song is "All In My Head", which was released on the aforementioned mixtape.

Budden would've been better off releasing his mixtape as the album, especially considering how bad the album is in comparison to the mixtape. "Skeletons" and "You and I" are the only redeeming original songs the album has. Expand

    Joe Budden's style is mediocre and this album is the proof, except for "She Do not Put It Down" produced by T-Minus and "Last Day" with Juicy J and Lloyd Banks.

    1/4 of hip-hop super group Slaughterhouse and emerging solo artist Joe Budden releases his 3rd studip album "No Love Lost". Lyrically this album is great as showcased on songs like "All in My Head" with Royce da 5'9" and "Skeletons" with Joell Ortiz Crooked I. The production for this album was absolutely horrible but thankfully the lyricism shown by the Mood God was impeccable to save1/4 of hip-hop super group Slaughterhouse and emerging solo artist Joe Budden releases his 3rd studip album "No Love Lost".

The production for this album was absolutely horrible but thankfully the lyricism shown by the Mood God was impeccable to save the album. All those who doubted Mr. Budden before this release should be proved wrong. Of course there is no 'big single' here to stand with his 2003 hit "Pump It Up" their are some radio friendly songs like "NBA" which features Wiz Khalifa and French Montana, "She Don't Put It Down" with Tank and rap superstar Lil Wayne. Overall, I think this is a good blueprint for the rap veteran's career. Expand

    No Love Lost is too inconsistent to leave a lasting impression, and falls short of greatness.

    It’s just typical Budden atop typical Top 40 (other than “Ghetto Burbs”, which could’ve been a Lil’ Cease epic in 1999) and that’s not a formula that makes for anything memorable.

    Even without the cushy padding of Welcome to: Our House's clutch of Alex da Kid, AraabMuzik, and Hit-Boy beats, No Love Lost predictably sounds an awful lot like everything else on the radio.
