  1. With Til the Casket Drops, the Virginia Beach brothers achieve crossover status (hello, Kanye West and Keri Hilson) but lose the fire that defined 2002's Lord Willin' and 2006's Hell Hath No Fury.
  2. The wrong turns don’t sink the album but steer it into an awkward middle place unbefitting the talented group behind the wheel.
  3. For better and for worse, Pusha T and Malice complement their beat selection on Til the Casket Drops. And it all makes for one of the year’s biggest disappointments from two of hip-hop’s best lyricists.
  4. Songs like the fluffy synth jam "Champion" make it sound like they spent too much time at Pharrell's beach house.
  5. Clipse seemed much more comfortable on Road, nesting inside the work of others. Casket provides no such comfort, finding them without their usual subject matter or a strong musical backbone, resulting in a clear sense of discomfort.

    In fact, throughout, older brother gets the best of his carefree little sibling. Breezier doesn't always equal better.

    They're back to tacky autopilot, forcing Sean C and LV to save face with two rousing contributions. [Apr 2010, p.84]
