  1. From start to powerful finish 16 tracks later, Scorpion pumps up the volume, the rhythms, everything.
  2. Scorpion propels her into pop stardom’s embrace, smartly blending party anthems with thug themes.

    A sophomore album that actually lives up to its hype.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

    I went and bought the album the day it came out simply because I LOVE EVE. She is my idol. She speaks words of truth and she's just I went and bought the album the day it came out simply because I LOVE EVE. She is my idol. She speaks words of truth and she's just being her. She doesn't care what anyone else thinks cause she's gonna do and be EVE regardless. She inspires me as a poet and rapper trying to get into the game myself. So big ups go out to EVE. Keep doin what you do mah. The album is hot. It gets played in my house/car everyday. Expand

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". Collapse

    Honestly this CD was horrible. I like Eve as a person, but her lyrics really suck. Sorry I give a three just for being Eve.
