I don't know whats with the haters who reviewed this, but ignore them. If you liked any of his previous 3 albums, you will like this. Personally I feel this is contender for his best album. Kane is sharper than hes ever been, his flows are flawless. Rest assured, Kane spits some fire on this album. This album marks his further acsension on the mic, with some instances of his rhyme spitting reaching blinding speed. The beats I was also very impressed with. They are definantly more experimental and straight hip hop than what some people here gave him credit for. Kane proved he didn't really need Marley Marl or Prince Paul, he could handle the beats himself. The only time on the album where he went real R&B was the chorus on track 2 and track seven. Track 7 is more of a talking skit/song like the one with Barry White from Taste of Chocolate. These are easily overlooked, and I think it holds no bearing on the rest of the album. This is also one of Kane's longest albums, and I think its solid all the way through. There are also classic guest spots from Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes. Don't sleep on this, your hip hop collection isn't complete without it.
