  1. Kanye West's debut aside, it's the essential hip hop album of the year so far. [Jun 2004, p.102]
  2. 75
    Tical 0... takes that voice and plugs it into more than a dozen tried-and-true rap templates. [Jun 2004, p.104]
  3. 60
    Feels like surprisingly generic party rap. [May 2004, p.126]
  4. 50
    [He] sounds stuck in a rut. [June 2004, p.152]
  5. There's a sense of urgency when he is inspired by the production backing him, but when the beats coast along without much flair, Method Man does the same.
  6. A weak Meth album produced poorly and without imagination in the main, by an assortment of losers, with each track featuring a guest emcee.
  7. Bogged down by Meth's lackadaisical approach and reliance on guest appearances, Tical 0: The Prequel falls flat on its befuddled front.
