  1. Ultimate Victory is everything one could have hoped for as an official sophomore album follow-up to "The Sound of Revenge"--there's no slump here.
  2. Forget about the backstory, though, and it's clear that h remains a truly innovative MC, and Ultimate Victory is stronger than its predecessor for one reason. [Nov 2007, p.70]
  3. A cohesive and complete album in the world of Southern rap.
  4. All the fuss last week over Kanye West and 50 Cent was misplaced: Chamillionaire bests them both while neatly sidestepping the sophomore slump on his second major-label album.
  5. Past a few missteps, the album is a winning embrace of hip-hop with commentaries on beefs, nostalgic pining for better days, and a positive outlook for the future of the genre.
  6. "The Ultimate Victory"--on which Cham expresses sympathy for media-dogged celebs like Eminem and Britney and admits, "I'm still filled with doubt"-- might be the most personally reflective hip-hop track since Slim Shady himself stepped to the mike.
  7. Victory fizzles as a disorganized laundry list of what Cham sees as society's troubles.
