    Like most blockbusters, TM103 lacks some subtlety and depth, but is nevertheless preposterously entertaining, almost unerring anthemic stuff. [Feb 2012, p.71]

    This is the sound of an artist fully formed, without a single faulty track to its name. Jeezy's done a hell of a job proving the doubters wrong here.

    The point is that despite the delays and false starts and question marks, ultimately Young Jeezy has continued an impressively consistent run of quality albums.

    He gives a worthy addition to the series and continues his reign as one of rap's best.

    Despite the abundance of features (twelve), Snow's fourth studio album is indeed a win.

    What he sacrifices in innovation he compensates for with focus and precision.

    The album certainly has its moments, but on the whole it's bogged down by too much middling material.

    Thanks in large part to the beats and the guest appearances, and in small part to Jeezy's frank delivery and raspy voice, it leans more toward the former [enjoyable] than the latter [obnoxious], leading me to give this album a cautious thumbs up.

    He's better when he sticks to his native tongue--the street-cred-radiating plain-spokenness he calls "real talk."

    This unforgiving return to form doesn't suffer from being over-thought and it's not even overwrought, but it is overstuffed at 14 tracks.

    When it comes to trap raps, he's coined and refined a slick, successful musical formula that TM103, easily maintains.

    Thug Motivation somehow feels both airless and over-inflated, the sound of an artist trying to revisit something gone.

    All in all it's a step forward for Young Jeezy, even if everyone around him is walking much faster.

    There's nothing about TM 103 that suggests Jeezy has any interest in moving on.

    Unfortunately, he sounds far less in command on most of TM:103, never lost, but rarely entirely at home.

    There's some genuine emotional sentiment displayed, but the swagger's too powerful and everything falls prey to blasé boasts.
