  1. 80
    A quick dozen tunes happily unconcerned with mass appeal. [Jan/Feb 2006, p.95]
  2. 75
    His agile attack still lacks Jigga's precision, 50's swagger, or Kanye's cocky confessionalism. [Jan 2006, p.92]
  3. Another strong batch of songs that are as entertaining as they are thought-provoking. [6 Dec 2005]
  4. Leans more toward conscious than commercial. [26 Nov 2005]
  5. 60
    Kweli expends most of his considerable lyrical talent touting his considerable lyrical talent. [Jan/Feb 2006, p.94]
  6. Kweli's slight charisma deficiency is tempered by collabos with MF Doom and Jean Grae, although the Black Star reunion with Mos Def ("Supreme, Supreme") adds little to their legacy.
  7. Stocked with leftovers and ornery jabs at the status quo.
