This is LL's 12th album. What an album!
This album is absolutley ouzzing with class. It is rare these days to get an album where you like every song but this album is just like that and that includes the bonus tracks.
The So Sick remix with Ne-Yo is pure class. I was expecting LL to start running out of steam with this album but he is back and BETTER than ever. In my opoinion this is his BEST album and is a must for any LL Cool J fan. This album has amazing tunes and beats with typical smooth and clever lyrics from LL.
This deserves No1, i find it hard to explain how good this is because what i say just doesn't do this album justice, just try it for yourself. Album of the Year.

This is an album to have in your collection, especially if you are a LL Cool J fan! As I say in the title this really is a great album, however I have to disagree with the statement of LL Cool J being the 'G.O.A.T' (greatest of all time) because quite simply Tupac, Nas and a couple of others are better! But don't get it twisted I am a LL Cool J fan and in fact i would recommend this album to anyone! Ultimately LL Cool J has now done 12 albums and he hasn't slumped, in fact he's upped his game on this album!
With tracks such as the massive 'Control Myself feat. J-Lo' you can entertain at a party or some lady friends to discuss pleasantries! Otherwise LL Cool J represents on tracks such as 'What you Want feat. Freeway,' which has to be my personal favourite, it's excellent, and 'Ooh Wee feat. Ginuwine' slowing it down to show off LL Cool J's romantic side like he did with classics like 'I need Love' and 'Love you Better,' yes some of the tracks on this album compete with some of the better stuff he has done! Finally I just want to mention 'Down the Aisle feat. 112' which is a great slow song and shows off the amazing voices of 112, which is a feature in this album...the great collaborations! LL Cool J still has the pulling power to get the likes of Ginuwine, 112, Freeway, Jermaine Dupri, Juelz Santana and of course J-Lo!
So to summarise this album...it has a lot to offer even if you're not the biggest LL Cool J fan and I would most definately recommend it! Out of all the albums I've bought this year, this is up there! So buy and enjoy it!

Good No! This is better than good, if you a LL fan this is a must buy, if your a hip hop fan buy this, where his last 2 albums contained 1-2 hits this is packed with them, 12 albums experience and L is on point, i don't normal recommend things because everybody's tastes are different but this is worth a Carlos recommendation packed with guest stars from the hot juelz santana 2 the sexy j'lo, to the remixing of so sick of love songs,this album is hot! parental advisory i don't think so when your this good you don't need 2 swear 2 sell records! buy it now it can only do your record collection good!
