  1. "Misstep" is certainly a word too harsh for The Big Doe Rehab, which is more "uneventful" than "wrong."
  2. One of the hardest working men in hip-hop fails to push himself on Big Doe, but better Ghost rapping than Soulja Boy. So "We Celebrate."
  3. Really, the sad emptiness of these raps needs little explication from me.
  4. The ensemble crew can't maintain the promising start. Aside from a few lyrical bullets, 'Paisley Darts' doesn't quite live up to the potential of its title.

    Most of the record is--sonically-speaking, rather than in terms of quality--classic Ghostface, but only a couple of these familiar tracks match the standard set on previous records.

    This doesn't quite match the delirious energy of 2006's "Fishscale," but it's packed with big numbers showcasing his maniacal rhyme style. [Feb 2008, p.95]

    Still a solid outing for Ghostface/Ironman/Tony Starks.
