    I felt like the weaker part of this album was it's production. It's not that the production was bad, but Ant doesn't help Slug in any way throughout this album. I believe if the Alchemist would have produced for Slug or if Eminem had rapped on Ant's beats this album would've been less dull. Also this is basically general hip-hop that the dull 00's had to offer. For Atmosphere altogether my favorite release was When Life Gives You Lemons in 08 Collapse

  1. This all could have been a drag in the hands of a rapper with less self-awareness or sense of humor, or without access to the deft production skills of Atmosphere beatmaster Ant.
  2. [Atmosphere] has never sounded as pointed and focused as it does here on its fifth album. [8 Oct 2005]
  3. Like Blackalicious' recent The Craft, it displays a real hard-earned competency, something a decade of recording together will get you. But the lyrics lack transcendence or resonance.
