  • Summary: This is the first album for the West Coast production team / hip-hop outfit formerly known as Tha Alkaholiks (and their fourth album to date, including that previous incarnation). Xzibit, Rockwilder, Kurupt and Busta Rhymes are among the guest contributors.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 10
  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. Vocalists Tash and J-Ro are so compelling, you wonder why ex-Lik Xzibit gets all the attention. [27 Jul 2001, p.72]
  2. 80
    The weirdest hip-hop album since OutKast's Stankonia. [Jun/Jul 2001, p.112]
  3. Their fourth album rarely disappoints...
  4. Yet while the familiar spirits-soaked verses of J-Ro and Tash will reassure old fans, it's the music here that should encourage them to set down their cans and bottles and listen.
  5. 60
    Sonically exhilarating, yet the lyrical content remains as alluring as vomit on a Sunday morning pavement. [Sep 2001, p.104]
  6. Occasional missteps keep X.O. Experience from being a bottle of the top-drawer stuff, though it'll still leave you with a good buzz. [Aug 2001, p.91]
  7. While the album stays true to the group's legacy of alcohol-themed, head-nodding party anthems, it falls short by schematically aping other artists' music.
