  1. The B.Coming starts strong... [and] eventually flattens out into dark, brooding territory.

    About as insular and pensive a rap record as anyone's ever made. [May 2005, p.120]
  3. The B. Coming attempts to document the emotional upheaval Sigel went through during his trial and conviction, but from the start the sober moral tone and forced gospel choruses make it obvious the MC's mind is on other matters.
  4. [A] worthless attempt at mainstream love.

Lyrically though the star combines menace, hope, fear and even the blues to make this one of this year's best hiphop albums. Full Review »
