    T.I. try to make a comeback like one Eminem did. But it failed. No Mercy was really bad but I think he doesnt put as much effort as he needed to. I'm a Big T.I. fan i have all of his CD's lets just say I could of gone through life without listening to the album

    T.I can construct a few listenable songs and has done so in the past. but on here it doesnt sound like much. not alot of replay value. the ones that do stick out are the ones with guest appearances. other than that its not really re memorable.

    While T.I.'s measured, discursive rap style is heard at its best on scourging confessional duets with Eminem and, of all people, Christina Aguilera on the genuinely touching Castle Walls, Further promising collaborations with Kanye West, Pharrell and Drake end up having a rather more formulaic ring to them.

    As for the other 13 songs, which he performs with a red-carpetful of A-list guests (Eminem, Kanye West, Christina Aguilera), they range from dour, generic pieces that can't conceal his listlessness to a few pretty good-ish party songs with sharp hooks and crackling beats. You can only hope he rediscovers his swagger.

    Tracks like the delinquent reminiscence "How Life Changed" and the mea culpa duet with Chris Brown, "Get Back Up", teeter queasily on the cusp of boast and apology. But you have to admire the gall of a repeat offender brazen enough to feature a quote from Helen Keller in his lyric booklet.
