Always Coming Back Home To You
To all my killers and my hundred dollar billers To emo kids that got too many feelings He held the register open while he counted her change I was... See the rest of the song lyrics

    Atmosphere's least frantic, most playful album. [Nov 2003, p.114]
  2. Bristles with the independent spirit that put both punk and hip-hop on the map.
  3. Blender

    Slug pushes against the beat like he's afraid it'll pass by before he's done, returning to the challenges of coupledom. [Oct 2003, p.114]
  4. I suppose that this isn’t the album a lot of people were probably hoping for. But it’s never the album people were hoping for.
  5. Though it's not the emotionally draining follow-up many were expecting, Seven's Travels succeeds. Its saving grace is the fact that Slug and Ant remain ignorant of, or choose to completely ignore, the hip-hop conventions that have handcuffed similar artists for almost a decade.
  6. It is far too lengthy to function as a coherent hip-hop record.
  7. Life is too short to spend valuable time with a record as essentially inessential as Seven's Travels.

What the hell did you people expect??? Many of u seem to think that this is not a good cd, I don't know why that would be, I think (and so do most people) this is .. how can i put it... A BOMB ASS ALBUM. This cd is great. Slug has always had an intensive lyrical ability. Slug has never dissapointed me with any of his music. Slug is the nbr 1 artist if u ask me. Fuck MAINSTREAM crap. Slug is real. If u have a problem with this cd its best that u shut up and pop in ur favorite Nelly cd. That ought to suit u better. -Lame- Expand

The energy is elevated This cd is a damn good cd for all the MOTHER FUCKING HATERS ha Ha, some songs dont have a catchy chorus but alot do. The energy is elevated ,the songs that are good make you want to bump your head, others are kinda dull and pointless. Suggest you buy it, good phrases and tight beats but its not slugs best album.

    Good, solid effort to make a unique cd. Numerous tracks are hot, backed by ANT's great production and Slug's great lyrics, flow, Good, solid effort to make a unique cd. Numerous tracks are hot, backed by ANT's great production and Slug's great lyrics, flow, and presence. However, it's not a pefect album. Definitely worth buying... Expand

    These guys are a bunch of wannabe thugs. I saw them live at the warped tour, and they almost incited a riot by pissing off the crowd. Not These guys are a bunch of wannabe thugs.
