AllMusic Review by

Released in conjunction with the straight-to-video film of the same name, Choices isn't a soundtrack but rather another in a long line of spun-off Three 6 Mafia albums. Like most post-'90s releases by the group, Choices features remarkable production from beginning to end by Juicy J and DJ Paul, and it also features a couple of standout tracks, in this case the opening few: "2-Way Freak," "Mafia," and "Baby Mama." From there the songwriting unwinds a bit as the tracks remain well produced but function more as features for the many guests (most of the Hypnotize Camp Posse, especially La' Chat, who is heavily featured) than they do as well-written tracks in league with the aforementioned standouts. Even so, Choices is one of the better Three 6 Mafia releases of the early 2000s -- certainly on a par with the preceding When the Smoke Clears, if not a notch above that album -- so fans should take note even if the album is a bit uneven and has very little at all to do with the film beyond a few skits and the title.
