MJG's solo debut No More Glory is a harder, more political record than anything he made with his regular partner, Eightball. While it has a few rough patches and it runs a little long, No More Glory is nevertheless an impressive display from MJG, revealing that he has greater lyrical insight and deeper musical gifts than previously suspected. The music is still Southern hardcore, with deep bass and hard-hitting rhythms, but the production is more textured than before, illustrating that the genre isn't as mindless as many critics claim. The album could have used a little of the more of the light funk that makes the single "That Girl" so irresistable, but even so, No More Glory is a terrific first step forward from MJG.
