  1. This latest LP is manna for rap purists.
  2. He's in fine form, spitting a string of mishievously witty quotables over grimy old-school samples. [30 Mar 2007, p.71]
  3. As big and as diverse as the guest list is, the album hangs and flows effortlessly.
  4. Devoid of filler and pop vocalist appearances, Red Gone Wild's a solid surprise for fans who thought the Funk Doc's career had gone up in smoke.
  5. Redman sounds every bit as strong in 2007 as he ever has. Unfortunately, he doesn't expand his range at all here.
  6. Red Gone Wild is a strong piece of work with continuous bounce.
  7. Red Gone Wild serves its purpose, reminding us that Redman can still be a lyrical beast at times.
  8. The album doesn't have any of the euphorically propulsive standout tracks that held Redman's older albums together.

    Redman is on fire on the album, as good as in his 90's prime. He delivers funny and clever rhymes and the old school beats are just perfect.Redman is on fire on the album, as good as in his 90's prime. He delivers funny and clever rhymes and the old school beats are just perfect. Redman fans will really enjoy this LP, but if you are hoping for changes and freshness on his approach, you'll be disappointed, it is just like his old albums. Full Review »

    This is one of the best rap albums I have heard this year, Red puts it down on this cd, for it to recieve anything lower than an 80 rating is absurd.
