    In general, Federline enunciates well. [11 Nov 2006]

    His constipated, region-nonspecific flow overwhelms even the most flamboyant beats. [Jan 2007, p.119]
  3. This disc is just as disposable and dumb as you'd expect.
  4. His flow is generic and instantly forgettable and his lyrics are trite, inconsequential and full of self-importance.
  5. The worst thing about Playing with Fire is that it's too stale and inept to inspire laughter: it can only elicit weary groans.
  6. Federline's rhyme flow is the opposite of tight.
  7. Other rappers might hesitate to brag about marrying into bling, but Federline isn't self-conscious about it.

    I don't own this album or anything, but once I save up enough of my allowance it'll be the first thing I buy. I heard a few cuts I don't own this album or anything, but once I save up enough of my allowance it'll be the first thing I buy. I heard a few cuts from it the other night at my friend's house and it knocked my socks off, damaging my shoes. This is the perfect stoner album, the beats are so crisp and the rhymes are so ill you'll think you've got ebola. In other words, this album will induce involuntarily roof-raising. I should have enough money by next week to own this, and once I do, I promise an in-depth track-by-track review. Expand

    Fed-ex (as he is now appropriately being called), is a waste of everyone's time. Please people, make him flop, stop talking about him, Fed-ex (as he is now appropriately being called), is a waste of everyone's time. Please people, make him flop, stop talking about him, and perhaps, just maybe, he'll go away. This isn't even intriguingly bad; it's not even laughable. I think the worst part of an album like this is how he casually utters blasphemy in the lines of "Like Jesus in every way/I'm crucified every day" in a way that he seems so oblivious to the importance of Jesus as anything more than simply being crucified at some point. Horrible, I wish I could put it into the negative. Expand
