  1. G-Unit fans and Lloyd Banks fans in particular will be satisfied with "Rotten Apple."
  2. A unifying moodiness holds the album together and succeeds in defining a regional New York City sound.
  3. Banks seems determined to launch a one-man revival with perfectly polished tracks like "Addicted" and "Hands Up."
  4. 50
    Clever turns of phrase, the reason you go to Banks in the first place, are in lesser supply on Apple, replaced with boilerplate declarations of supremacy. [Oct 2006, p.148]
  5. Rotten Apple... doesn’t try to address Banks’ shortcomings, it just buries them under tectonic plates of NYC sturm und drang and more of Banks guffawing end rhymes.
  6. G-Unit needs to stop remaking Lloyd Banks's first hit, On Fire, from, like, two years ago.
  7. Even Banks' better-than-average skills can't save "Rotten Apple" from mediocrity.
