Wow!! I have been a huge Mobb Deep fan for years and was very pleased to hear them back to their best!!
After hearing the lead single 'Got it twisted' several months ago, I couldn't wait to hear what P & Havoc had to offer this time around. Therefore, I expected great things and wasn't left dissapointed. This is the Mobb's best album, without a doubt!! The opening five tracks set the standard which never slips, with examples being the amazing cuts such as the opener 'Americaz nightmare' and 'Dump' featuring the great Nate Dogg. This album has reinstated the Mobb as the definitive rap group around as unlike their last album, every track is real, grimey hip hop which the Mobb have made famous, no commercial trax what so ever (which is a rareity today). Mobb are on point throughout with some great cameo appearances from Jadakiss, Nate Dogg, Lil Jon, Twista and more!! Prodigy is still as dominant on the mic and Havoc's production is as tight as ever.
Standout traks are: 'Real N***az', 'Americaz Nighmare', 'Got it twisted'&'Real Gangstaz(producer/Lil Jon)' to name a few. But truthfully, every song is fantastic. Very rarely do you hear an album as consistent as this!
Production on this classic come from Havoc, Alchemist, Kanye West, Lil Jon and Red Spyda. !WoW!
One love to the Mobb for such a grimey comeback! LC

My God, what an excellent album! I absolutely love this album! This is the all round package when it comes to alums. The beats are crazy and the lyrics, as in Mobb Deep fashion, are immense and they lyrics work to the beat; there are no signs of disjointedness on this cd!
I love the whole album but my two favourite songs which for me stand out the most are; 'Got it Twisted' and 'Dump,' which features the ever present and amazing vocals from Nate Dogg. You also get to hear the, in my eyes, great voice and skills of Jadakiss and there is an appearance from Twista on the remix of 'Got it Twisted.' With no disrespect to the artists that did the collaborations, they, in a sense, weren't needed because of the immence vocals and lyrics from Havoc and Prodigy!
I love everything on this album and I don't see why others would disagree with me! I would strongly recommend you buying this album!

Mobb Deep return to form with a change of label and opening up to some new producers and direction. There's no point in saying its' up with 'Infamous' - they'll probably never reach those heights in thesam way that I'm certain now that Nas will never re-produce an 'Illmatic'. And it's not really right for us to expect them to. Having said thy are back on point with this album - the first 5 tracks are straight BANGERS. 'Win Or Lose' 'Flood The Block' and 'Get it Twisted' especially - it's amazing what you can do with a Thomas Dolby record. Someone on Amazon criticized the hook on 'Flood' but since when does simplicity not work in a record - it still sounds as hardcore an aggressive as anything the Mobb have previously put out. Their collabo with Lil' Jon is probably the best thing he's put out.
There still are a couple of tracks which are take-or-leave but no more than most hip-hop CDs today s I don't think anyone need be too harsh. A lot's been made of Prodigy's flow not being on point as much as it was - maybe that's down to the fact that Hav has come on so much as an MC. I noticed that on 'Infamy' - whereas P had always been the one guest featuring on no end of other artists' tracks, Hav was always the one in the background, the one thought primarily as the producer in the group. Now he's done some collabos himself, for example with Raekwon (King of Kings) where he truly shone on his own accord. I guess the solo project he was meant to put out never happened. Some have pointed out examples in this album of P's supposed wackness, but listening to them, I think it's just a rhyme style he adopts for parts of a track and then switches it up later (Track 7).

Format: Audio CD
from what ive heard of this album it sounds f*cking brilliant and ive heard 90% of this album. The album starts off where they left off with there last real album infamy, with the album title track amerikaz nightmare which is excellant and keeps with mobb deep's old style. Dump featuring Nate Dogg is everything u can expect from any song that nate dogg features on. Then theres Got It Twisted which is the hottest single ive heard this year and also the best track on the album. When You hear that, alchemist produced is a standout track also. Real Gangstaz is excellant too and you can tell its produced by lil jon. one of ours part 2 is the second part of the song one of ours which was featured on the barbershop 2 lp. Then you have throw your hands up which is produced by the one and only kanye west which is an awesome track, and then the got it twisted remix which is good but not as good as the original. BELIEVE ME YOU NEED THIS ALBUM IN YOUR LIFE!!!!

3-1/2 stars -- Slowly returning to form... 7 Dec 2004
By Anthony Rupert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Okay...so it's obvious that this album isn't as good as The Infamous or Hell On Earth. But all these people giving this album one star because of that reason really isn't fair. That's the same principle behind people giving a new Nas album one star because it's not Illmatic.

But it's true that the Mobb haven't had a really decent album in a while. Murda Muzik had mixed reviews, but Infamy was tacky, and Free Agents (or whatever that album was called) was so bad that stores stopped carrying it after a while. And while Amerikaz Nightmare isn't exactly their best album, it's quite an improvement.

There is still one problem, however. With the last few albums, while Havoc continues to impress, Prodigy's rhymes have been slumping. This can be shown on tracks like "Shorty Wop"; and sorry, but in "We Up", his entire verse is wack: "I'm havin' dreams of squeezin' a gun that don't work/And some n with a tek come and wet my shirt/I catch bullets in my stomach and them ish's burn/I wake up sweatin' holdin' my stomach cause it hurt..." But actually, the chorus is pretty lame too.

Don't think there aren't any gems to be found on this album, though. As I'm sure everyone's heard by now, Alchemist slowed down the music from Thomas Dolby's hit "She Blinded Me With Science" to provide the great backdrop for "Got It Twisted". But even better than that is the remix, where Twista stops in to rip up the mic. Another good one is "Get Me", where Noyd shines as usual while Littles also impresses (too bad he had to resort to trying to start a feud within the group later on).

Other good songs are "Win Or Lose" and the title track. And guest stars Nate Dogg and Jadakiss make good performances on "Dump" and "One of Ours Part II", respectively. But there are still a few more songs that are lame and made even lamer by their choruses, like "Flood the Block" and "Neva Change". There's also the obligatory Kanye West-produced track, "Throw Your Hands (In the Air)", which lazily samples the classic Cypress Hill song.

I still think Hav and P have a ways to go before they get back to their old status, but I was just about to give up on them until I heard this album. Amerikaz Nightmare might not be as good as the classics, but it's still a step in the right direction.

The Comeback Album!!! 7 Sep 2005
By Kunal Vaghela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After the struggle for Mobb to get back on top, they came back with a solid effort with Amerikaz Nightmare where they have decided to bring back terror in your stereo. With superb production mostly delt with Havoc, along with the Alchemist with many other guests. Blazing back on the charts with their first single "Got It Twisted" which got Mobb Deep back on the scene, it's going to be a long road but many can say they've half way reached there.

buy it...hot for '04... but it's no classic 14 Aug 2004
By A. Steinberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First off, i'm only giving 4 stars cuz it's '04...it's honestly more a 3. anyway, it's pretty tight. there aren't a lot of colabos, and the ones that they kept are decent to pretty good. nate dogg's hook on "dump" is sick, jada's verse is nice, littles and noyd actually outshine p and hav on their cut...twista sucked, but hey, it's just a bonus remix.

the beats are pretty hot. you've all heard get it twisted, there are 2 other great alchemist beats, the kanye beat on "throw your hands" is arguably his best since his tracks on blueprint (!), lil jon's beat...well, some will knock it for (a) being on a mobb deep album in the first place and (b) not being too good, but i thought it worked surprisingly well. and havoc's beats are good, not infamous quality, but good. none as good as his beat on "why" for jada, but some come close. now for the rapping...it's solid, that's the best you can really say. hav continues to step up his game from where he started, and he delivers a few really hot verses. p's a whole other story. sometimes his flow is really lazy, and you can even catch 3 seconds of beat between lines, and trust, it sounds awful when he does it. his lyrics just aren't what they used to be either. there's no one verse where he really comes correct, the best he gives you is six or seven lines of fire before he slips into some "my tecs are bigger than yours, you're no thug" ish. so, coming from a guy with so many gems under his belt, it's really sad. at this point i might prefer a hav and nore joint to hav and p, that's where it is almost. and my last complaint is very little storytelling. you don't get any joints like "trife life" or "temperature's rising," it's really all "the mobb is the clique, all you other guys are biters" over 15 tracks. still, hav is strong, the beats are some of the best you'll hear all year long, no filler, no r&b, and "win or lose" is one of the best songs i've heard in a long while. so definitely buy it, you'll enjoy it.

Mobb Deep- Amerikaz Nightmare 10 Aug 2004
By Done - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Mobb Deep return with their sixth album "Amerikaz Nightmare" (2004). Having followed the duo of Prodigy and Havoc for over ten years I have to say I am really happy to see another release from them. It has been three years since they have released a full-length group album (not including Murda Mixtape) and they are now with a new label Jive Records. I am still bumping their previous albums on a regular basis, and consider "The Infamous" & "Hell on Earth" to be Classic albums. Mobb Deep has always excelled at delivering reality street Rap and continue to do so with this long awaited release.

The albums opener, which shares its name, has a hungry Mobb Deep providing a grimy track showing that they're still holding their spot down. Mobb Deep then deliver an excellent track with "Win or Lose", feeling the lyrics and background chorus to this cut. Havoc leads the way on the hardcore "Flood the Block". The first guest appearance comes from Nate Dogg on "Dump Dump", feeling this collaboration. By now most people have heard the hit single "Got It Twisted" which has been getting a lot of play in the clubs and surprisingly the radio. I find that I am not feeling a lot of lead singles these days because artists change their formats to get that commercial appeal, Mobb Deep does not do that at all on this joint and end up providing an outstanding track. Long time Mobb beat provider Alchemist laces "When you Hear the" with a sick beat which P and Hav kill. Mobb then breaks things down on thugged out tracks "Real N***az" and "Shorty Wop". Not a Lil' Jon fan and not feeling his trademark yeah's which are featured on "Real Gangstaz". Jadakiss on the other hand is an MC I appreciate so it's nice to see him on "One of Ours Part II". Not to forget it was Havoc who provided the addictive beat for Jada's hit lead single. Mobb come hard with "On the Run" and follow it up with the banging "Throw Your Hands" (In the Air), which is my favourite track on this album. Kayne West provides an insane beat for this cut, Prodigy shines lyrically while Havoc provides a memorable chorus. Fellow QB MC's Littles and Noyd hook up with Mobb on the decent "Get Me". Mobb Deep then supply two more impressive tracks with the dangerous "We Up" and sick "Neva Change". Twista has finally gotten the credit he deserves this year so its good to see him hook with P and Hav on the remix of "Got it Twisted".

Nothing can surpass the original Mobb Deep albums for me, all the same this one easily gets five stars as it's a complete album with a number of outstanding tracks. Mobb follow their winning formula and provide the hardcore tracks Rap fans have come to love them for. Although both Mobb Deep MC's impress on this release, I really feel Havoc shines, and I hope he follows this up with the solo album many of us have been waiting for. Mobb Deep has succeeded in creating a first class album with "Amerikaz Nightmare". This is easily one of my favourite releases of the year and I highly recommend checking it out.

Mobb Deep - Amerikaz Nightmare 3 Jan 2006
By Wu-Tang_Assassin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
3.75 stars for this album. Its alright, seems like they went way mainstream with it though, comparing this album to recent releases. Still got some good tracks though, the ones that dont sound mainstream, thats why I gave this a 3.75 stars, because there IS tracks on here that dont sound mainstream, but theres some that DO, so its half and half. This album gots really good production, and the lyrics are pretty good. But you want a GOOD Mobb album, check out "Infamous". That ones the best.
