  • Summary: The sophomore album for the New York rap group features Young Buck.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 10
  2. Negative: 3 out of 10
  1. Even with its wobbly mix of yesterday, today, a better tomorrow, T.O.S. is much closer to classic than failure and should reassure fans this slow-moving tank is pointed in the exactly right direction.
  2. Ultimately, G-Unit has returned to its aggressive roots, but it would've been wonderful to hear it rap over a more varied assortment of beats.
  3. 60
    Without recourse to crossover tricks, it's arguably more consistent than 50's last outing, although topics--guns, beef, money--may leave you wondering what rap has become. [Oct 2008, p.90]
  4. After sifting through the storyline, it's just hard to figure out why these guys are important anymore.
  5. Sure, the beats bang like crazy, but the songs are emotionally hollow, thematically one-dimen­sional and conceptually lifeless.
  6. T.O.S. would simply be a middling posse record if it didn't further undermine its own cred by constantly referencing better rap songs.
  7. What’s truly embarrassing for G-Unit throughout T*O*S is the way Young Buck shows up (which he does on four separate occasions) and puts everyone to shame.

    THis album was pretty good with about 6 good songs. My personal favorites were you so tough, and no days. The beats were very good but 50 cent and tony yayo tend to ruin the songs. Young Buck was o.k. The album was saved by Llyod banks with good chorus and lyircs. Expand

    This album was way too simple. As an avid hip-hop fan, I am always looking for something fresh and new. This album shows that G-Unit is still trying to get paid off of their early success. There isn't any effort or skill shown in the album. I would definitely say, "Do not buy this album!" Expand

    The 1 is for young buck still being on there.But overall i've witnessed the end of G Unit when i listened to this album.Seems everything turned to the worse since yayo got released from prison. It's sad. Expand

    What ever it was that G-Unit once had that made them special seems to have expired 3 years ago. Overall this album just comes of as dated and uninspired. When compared to recent albums by their contemporaries (Carter III for example is just far more interesting) it comes off ass downright boring. Everything from the production, lyrics, and the themes just seem tired, passe, and cliche. Instead of kicking people out the group, they should really look to add some new ones...anything to make them less boring and played out. Expand
