    A bruisingly great collection of demented 1988-style boom-bap. [May 2004, p.107]
  2. Ghostface... comes off hungrier than ever to produce thrilling hip-hop. [14 May 2004, p.68]
  3. Fourteen listens deep, this is still getting better. All but a rap classic. You know, Kanye's good, but really, fuck that. Ghost for president.
  4. "Pretty Toney" doesn't match the high standard of Ghostface's first two, "Ironman" and "Supreme Clientele," but it's a strong album nonetheless, packed with dense narratives and weird conceits.
  5. "Hip-hop soul" is supposed to be for r&b singers, but Ghostface's latest redefines the term.
  6. An album full of voluptuous soul samples fused with brusque perspectives on love, life, and common thuggery.
  7. Unfortunately, The Pretty Toney Album falls short in replacing what Raekwon had contributed to Ghost's previous album releases, causing the album to feel essentially incomplete.
