  1. Pretty Toney far surpasses 2001's Bulletproof Wallets, finally finding the missing link between street cred and commercial respect.
  2. 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.

    A bruisingly great collection of demented 1988-style boom-bap. [May 2004, p.107]
  4. Ghostface... comes off hungrier than ever to produce thrilling hip-hop. [14 May 2004, p.68]
  5. Though his rhyming Wu-Tang compatriots are conspicuously absent, Ghostface's latest does what nearly all latter-day Wu-Tang releases have been trying to do without much success: return to the brilliance of 36 Chambers. [28 Apr 2004]

    A classic album from one of the most classic catalogs in the game. Ghostface was so on fire at this point in his career. From start to finish this album was bananas. Must own for any hip hop head. Full Review »

    One of ghosts' best. Ironman was like the flipside to only cuban linx, and this album is the closest return to that calibur. Grown man rap touched with something rap has gotten away from - soul, humor, and a killer flow... Full Review »

    This is my favorite album. You might not like it if you don't like to get o know your rapper personally.
