  1. On about half the cuts, Eve sits back and allows her featured guests to take over completely. This ploy might make for an interesting mix if either the huge roster of producers or Eve herself had managed to exploit the walk-ons' uniqueness - DMX, Mo'nique, Gwen Stefani, Drag-On and Styles of the Lox all make undistinguished cameos
  2. None of these songs are as ear-catching as the first album's "Gotta Man." And to play up Swizz Beatz's contributions is to point out how frequently Eve gets lots in the beats when they're slamming, and how she never enhances them when they're not.
  3. Like most blockbusters, the script is predictable - topics include no-good men, being hard and how great Eve is - but this is designed for booming out of car stereos rather than close listening.
  4. Stick with the up-tempo tunes and this is solid enough fare.... But I don't think there is anything new lyrically, despite the various claims.
  5. What it all adds up to is an effective commercial album, littered with potential singles, taking few risks and adding little to hip hop culture.

Eve's lyrics are great, but some of the people featured in the songs aren't that talented. The best songs are "Who's That Girl" and "Scream Double R". Full Review »

    Over-rated but solid. Doesn't drag on like some other hip hop albums.
