the guy that gave this 2 stars must have some serious problems with his ears,
i cant remember the last time ive listened to an album without being the slightest bit tempted to hit the skip button, this album is damn near perfect in every way. we had some gems last years with phontes 'charity starts at home', Reks' self titled album, evidence 'cats & dogs' and pharoahe monchs W.A.R. and 2012 is looking even better. its so hard to name standout tracks but ima go with 'prove me wrong' 'signs' 'nautica' 'anotha one' 'just walk' 'caught up'. Do yourself a favor and buy this album u wont regret it. i'm literally addicted to this album, mad respect to apollo brown and OC for putting this masterpiece together.
p.s that 2 star review is a JOKE dont let it affect your decision.

Man what a return for OC. After dropping 2, in my book classic albums, Word..life and Jewels in the 90s and a couple of more strong, but not classic worthy efforts, OC is back with one of the finest albums of 2012. Apollo Browns beats creates the perfect carpet for OC too flow effortlessly over and thats what makes this album standout from his last couple of joints. He always come correct with the lyrics but here once again he can flow over beats that suits him just perfect. It's a coherent listen and with 16 tracks and no fillers. Personally, i hold this album as a true back too form album for OC. Definitely worth every penny!

This is a highly enjoyable effort. Apollo's beats are true to Hip Hop's gold standard, providing a backdrop over which OC excels, with cerebral, thought-provoking lyricism, in marked contrast to the faux Hip Hop that is saturating today's society.
