AllMusic Review by

Canibus is always doing something different. It seems like most of the better rappers and groups nowadays don't do many albums the same as one another, but adapt their style to keep people intrigued. Canibus does this here, with an almost mellow, laid-back offering. This album is really relaxed; the MC from "100 Bars" or "Poet Laureate" isn't found here. The beginning of the LP starts with a few intros and some tracks where Canibus takes on the form of Stan from the Eminem song. It's interesting, but not necessarily effective. The video game samples used throughout are a really weird thing about this album. Some of them are just plain annoying, but still Canibus proves that he can rock over anything. This is a long album, something that Canibus obviously worked pretty hard on. If you're a die-hard fan, don't expect the MC murderer listeners have grown used to, but don't completely write it off either. An introspective effort.
