  • Summary: Atmosphere's Ant produces the Minnesota rapper's long-awaited follow-up to his 2003 debut 'Shadows On The Sun.'
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 14 out of 16
  2. Negative: 0 out of 16
  1. They're a tight fit: Ant likes to experiment, and Ali's nimble enough to keep up and make it work.
  2. I'm prepared to defend this as hip hop's frontrunner for best album of 2007 thus far.
  3. You might not agree with him the entire way, but the gale force of Ali’s convictions and talent will leave you willing to believe most of his truth.
  4. In many ways it's more of the same, but it does seem to improve upon the formula ever-so-slightly.
  5. [Ali] commands thick details and righteous anger. [19 Apr 2007, p.63]
  6. 66
    I still think I'd rather have a chat with him than listen to his music. [#24, p.90]
  7. All too often, his voice/accent/rhyming patterns suffer from too much rehashed facsimile of past rap glories.

    The album Ga perfect name for such a devestatingly funky hip hop album. The lyrics are spit with such intensity and heart felt truth and the The album Ga perfect name for such a devestatingly funky hip hop album. The lyrics are spit with such intensity and heart felt truth and the production is so flawless that you can't help but jump up and wave your mo fu*king hands in the air. Cop this album as fast as possible and you will soon gain respect, if you hadn't already had it, for hip hop as a lifestyle not just a fad. Brother Ali is leading the musical revolution You and I have been waiting for all our lives! Nas was right Hip Hop was Dead until April 10 when it was resurrected by this crazy albino dude. Expand

    One of the dopest rap albums to ever come out....not just this year..but ever. The beats are on point made by produce ANT.

    This album is pretty good. It's the first album I got from Brother Ali even though I am a Rhyme Sayers head. It's pretty good.
