    10 is a return to form for LL, and the album finds him doing what he does best: Making relaxed, radio-friendly jams while giving the ladies a little something extra.

    LL's best album since 1987's Bigger and Deffer. [Jan 2003, p.122]
  3. It's a fun record, it's a frustrating record.

    Mostly, Ten is The LL Cool J Show -- a reliable sitcom, now in its tenth season, detailing the bachelorhood of a brawny loverman. [#12, p.146]
  5. Rolling Stone

    These songs emphasize edgy grooves while only occasionally pandering to R&B obviousness. [14 Nov 2002, p.86]

    10 unfortunately remains mired in irrelevance. [Jan 2003, p.120]
  7. Cool J has backed off from proclaiming himself the greatest rapper of all time at every possible opportunity, which is fortunate: His claim on that title has never been shakier.
