    The thrills come when he jumps off the cross and gets on the dance floor. [Nov 2001, p.129]

    With regular producer Swizz Beatz virtually absent here, this fourth album is definitely mixed. [Dec 2001, p.121]
  3. Filled with the sort of aggressive, testosterone-fueled rage that has helped make DMX the Henry Rollins of hardcore hip-hop.
  4. DMX is stuck at the crossroads that confronts every rapper trying to keep it real when reality no longer plays like an action movie.
  5. This is easily the weakest DMX release to date.
  6. The most depressing thing about this album is that DMX's passion for rhyming seems to have been eclipsed by his success.
