  • Summary: The seventh album for the member of the Wu-Tang Clan.

  1. Rehab packs the visceral, transgressive punch of the best crime fiction but it's equally adept at old-school Sunday-in-the-park jams (the infectious single 'Celebrate') and wiggy conceptual tracks like 'White Linen Affair (The Toney Awards).'
  2. Ghostface's beat selection is impeccable.

    Fresh off his triumphant "Fishscale" series, the thinking-thug’s MC once again shows why he’s the alpha Wu-Tanger: palpable street authenticity, classic taste in R&B (Stax, Motown) and the breakneck rhyme virtuosity of hip-hop’s golden age.
  4. On his seventh solo album, the strong The Big Doe Rehab, Ghostface brings the energy and excitement to his songs unfortunately missing from much of the Wu-Tang's latest release.
  5. The album has more than its share of bangers and certainly beats last December’s leftovers casserole More Fish on the killer-to-filler ratio, but Ghost veers too close for comfort to the feel of his worst albums
  6. The album might actually play to Ghost's strengths too much; virtually every track is a straight-ahead adrenal banger with a screaming soul sample and a death-obsessed narrative.
  7. Really, the sad emptiness of these raps needs little explication from me.
