  1. The Truth Is Here is his second perfect disc in that many years and just earned a spot in my Top Five Alive column.
  2. Ali can do this, can take the familiar, the overly confrontational, even the trite and overdone, and make it riveting, because he has a voice that strains syllables so that the meanings of his words are made perfectly clear--you can't escape what he's saying--and a flow that loads and unleashes relentlessly.
  3. Whether this is your first foray into Ali’s catalog or you’re already a seasoned fan, there is no reason to not check this out.

    Ali's lyrics and Ant's production have more to say in a few bars than most MCs and producers are able to in an entire song.
  5. The EP serves its purpose quite well as it gives fans just enough to keep you craving a Brother Ali full length, but holds back enough so they will appreciate the full length once it arrives.
  6. No one aspect of Ali's personality really dominates. The Truth Is Here is all the stronger for it, and that can only be considered a good sign.
