  1. The finest mainstream hip-hop album of the year.

    The real story here is Twista's rapping. [9 Oct 2005]

    Though it lacks the element of surprise, The Day After secures Twista's star status this time around. [Nov 2005, p.148]

    Twista's fast but heavy rhyme style doesn't often leave room for charm or narrative or wit.... But his intricate verbal rhythms are more important than the words, anyway. [3 Oct 2005]
  5. Billboard

    Unfortunately, instead of eliciting the same response as its predecessor, ["Girl Tonite"] comes as a feeble attempt to copy success. Luckily, there are enough highlights to balance things out. [8 Oct 2005]
  6. Ultimately, The Day After is another middling album from a tremendously talented rapper who will never get the respect he deserves because he's all too eager to make compromised crossover records.
  7. Rolling Stone

    Feels predictable and unexceptional. [3 Nov 2005, p.96]
