    Tempering futurism with retro-rap here, [Timbaland and Missy] feed the old through the new and refresh both. [#12, p.142]
  2. 100
    Even with all the drama, Construction is Elliott's sturdiest creation yet.
  3. One of the best rap LPs of the year.
  4. Missy scores the highest marks in the qualities shared by all gifted rappers: rhymes, flow, cleverness and style.
  5. With each album, Elliott has grown more confident and individualistic, not to mention more bizarre.

    Everybody loves Missy, but this is her worst work. "Work It" is the summer anthem of the album, and that's the high point. But Missy is very talented.
