    He sticks defiantly to formula, hustling a string of synth-heavy, syncopated club jams. [#14, p.134]
  2. Street Dreams is a little too padded for its own good, and a handful of tracks suffer from all-too-familiar samples that have been used in recent hits by other artists.
  3. His laid-back delivery and glitchy computer beats are only interesting for so long.
  4. Five decent tracks (only three new) does not make a good album, and that is why Street Dreams only improves on Fabolous’ debut marginally.
  5. The productions are much better than the songs.
  6. Street Dreams reveals itself as a hollow gem when Fabolous tries to have it all, unveiling a gangsta sneer so unconvincing it makes Nelly seem dangerous.
  7. The ideas are thin and the beats thinner. [14 Mar 2003, p.66]
