  1. Scorpion, her second solo album in three years, stands a good chance of blowing up the airwaves and charts, though it still battles with the hardcore elements that made her first album such a disappointment.
  2. From start to powerful finish 16 tracks later, Scorpion pumps up the volume, the rhythms, everything.
  3. Scorpion propels her into pop stardom’s embrace, smartly blending party anthems with thug themes.
  4. 80
    A sophomore album that actually lives up to its hype.
  5. While a step up from her promising debut, Scorpion is far from perfect: Eve is too smart for testosterone-heavy, shout-along nonsense like "Cowboy," "Scream Double R," and "Thug In The Streets."

    Eve ultimately transcends dog-bait stereotypes with an evolving sense of style that finds her waxing rough and cool one minute and warmly grooving along to reggae the next... [May/June 2001, p.108]
  7. Spin

    Eve has moved her Ruff Ryders to the back half, scored some marquee-value collaborators, and found two guys who can mimic Swizz Beatz well enough to fill the spaces around Mr. Beatz's four tracks without too many seams showing. [5/2001, p.141]

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.
