    Eminem complements [Trice's] sinister outlook with equally gloomy production. [Aug 2006, p.140]
  2. 60
    The anti-sentimentality gets a bit relentless over 18 songs. [Aug 2006, p.118]
  3. This round goes down like a cheap well drink. [18 Aug 2006, p.139]
  4. Ill-advised collaborations and uncharacteristic subject matter mar proceedings, particularly the record’s dragging second half.
  5. Second Round is wholly lacking in the playfulness that made his debut, Cheers, a varied delight. [21 Sep 2006, p.88]
  6. 40
    Dreary production from hometown benefactor Eminem does little to liven things up. [Aug 2006, p.82]
  7. Second Round’s on Me just emphasizes everything that’s wrong with gangsta rap.

Hands down the best rap album of the year! No dought that the album isn't getting the play it should becaue it is truly to hardcore to fit in with the common airplay. But for true hip hop heads this album is a must buy! Obie shows exactly why he's Eminem's first signee! Before 50! Expand

    Obie, you have GOT to get your shit together. After Cheers dropped, a lot of people were paying attention, and the high-profile kids you were Obie, you have GOT to get your shit together. After Cheers dropped, a lot of people were paying attention, and the high-profile kids you were running with seemed to be working hard just to keep up. For round two, unfortunately, you seem distracted by glam and hell-bent on celebrity. It doesn't look good on you, so take whoever told you to jock Jay Z and send him to the trauma center. It's okay, don't sweat it too hard. Everyone knows round three gets you laid. Expand
