    I really like it! It's a bit different than their last few albums, but in a good way. Also interesting that Malik B no longer seems to be in the band, and one of the songs (I think it was Water?) referenced him having a drug problem...

    supposedly malik "retired."


    i really really like this cd. lots of good beats, good rhymes, and "water" is about as close to brilliant as one can get.

    two thumbs up.

    Some songs are excellent and I can't stop playing them, but the rest cross over into cRAP and that's not too cool for my taste... Good thing it came with a DVD of some of their good ol' songs..

    The DVD is sweet too.
     
  10. damn, i like it. they just get more and more better evolved in the musical sense every album. THe "crossover" stuff iike alot, but I do recognize that that is just what it is and has to be taken for its worth
