Fantastic album. An absolute classic, and a record every true hip hop fan should own.

Easily the best LB album. It works so well. It's the sound of a team on top of their game and working together to make a first class product. Shame they could never better it. one of the greatest albums post 2000

Too bad 9th Wonder couldn't get along with Pooh and Phonte in the end because we should have been blessed with efforts like this one for years. Bangers like "Lovin' it," "Beautiful Morning" and "Watch me" make you wonder why this group was never a household name, even by many of those that should know who they were, collectively. Phonte is one of the illest lyricist in rap music but....

Thematically speaking, this album is unlike anything I have ever heard. From start to finish, Little Brother and their production crew (near) flawlessly execute their Minstrel Show satire. The "Fifth and Fashion" skit is in my personal skit hall of fame. If you are a young, (halfway) educated black person in 'merica--like myself--this skit especially will make you smile.
