    Comment: huge fan of al's production but this lp is really lacking. quite a few promising emcees on the tracks but this commercial approach is really not his thing. its funny I was bumping the collab mixtape with prodigy (return of the mac) on my way to work this morning and almost EVERY track on it is a BANGER.

    Comment: whaddup hip hop dan. I usually underestimate european fans. I am too quick to judge as euro-trash but looking past that... fucking right where the whooliganz shit at??? have to be held over with that gangrene shit for this year though. hopefully it comes out. just got pushed back we'll see.. best tracks I like 2, 3, 4, 7, 9, 10, 11, 13 & 15 the best. the rest thump too though. I like better than 1st infantry

    Comment: The ONLY reason I gave this album 3.5 stars is cause if I gave it 5 there would be no room to grow... Alchemist is the truth, has been for a while, slept on like many truths in the game... I can appreciate this album, it has a lot of aspects from all over the nation.. no one sound...

    Comment: Just to add something on here, I hold my artist to a higher standard because of all the garbage that you hear.... I'm also not afraid to call an artist out if his shit don't bang....I've been a head since 79 & I know good, bad & classic album when I hear it.... UGHH is an underground site for cats that did the culture of hip hop.....This site is not for the commercial catz it's for the B-Boy & the headz... I do respect all the cats comments that bring something to the table, but don't just say an album is good because you like the artist... Al fell off on this one

    Comment: ya'll stupid ass n*ggas talkin this commerical bullshit. first of all, they won't play none of these tracks on mainstream radio. Not even "smile", and that is a radio friendly track. When the last time you heard juvi or three6 on the radio?? muthafuckas act like they neva played a kweli song on rotation. just because ya'll don't like and artist. don't dis the song and the style of the artist on that track. On compilation albums gotta pick n*ggas for the beat being played. I'm the most hatinest n*gga out there when it comes to music, but its an all around good album. If anything Fabulous should have been switch for evidence or a better slow flow rapper. Also, take out three6 for stat quo on that south shit.

    Comment: This album is really boring & it has no classic alchemist tracks.... This was a cat that kept your ride bumpin & his beats don't bang on this joint... I'm not feeling his choice in Mc's either,Dog Pound, Juvenile, twister & 3six mafia, snoop & Eminem???Heads don't want to hear them on a record... You can turn your local radio station on for that..... Step it up Al for the real hip hop cats....

    Comment: Props to Alchemist. This may not be his best work but it is a masterpiece for those who have a real ear for music. Not the ears of someone who's stuck "Underground" or "Mainstream". Whateva happen to Dope beats and Dope Lyrics and nobody givin' a fuck what you looked like or where you from or how many units you sold? Huh? Back in the real Hip Hop era (yeah I'm old as hell)you didn't need a video or radio play 'cause' if your shit was good you could find it in the streets. Thank you UGHH! for keepin' real shit available. Peace!!!

    Comment: I am the biggest alc fan going,but this Smile joint he got wit twista and maxwell pretty much isnt what im lookin for on an alc release. not after waiting this long.Maybe Al will see this stuff somehow.push it back again,go back in the studio,and come back with what I expect when I see"produced by alchemist". Nothing wrong wit mainstream but having maxwell,wayne and twista isnt gonna be the thing that gives u a gold or plat plaque.

    Comment: Listen man, everybody needs to stop hating on mainstream artists just because they're mainstream. Tha Carter and parts of Tha Carter II and III were dope...don't hate on an MC just because he makes money. Twista is a pretty lyrically skilled rapper, last time I checked. All the real producers like 9th and Al and Premo have worked with mainstream artists (Luda, Wayne, Christina Aguilera). Appreciate the music regardless of whether it sells or not. ALC is still dope and will always be regardless of who he works with...that's precisely why he's great, he can make all different kinds of people sound good. Too many underground heads spend all their time hating on the mainstream and don't even give anything with a mainstream name on it a second listen. Man PLEASE!

    Comment: Lil Wayne?? Twista?? Who's next? T-Pain?? Plies?? Yung Joc?? What's up with all the wack MC's? Alc has never disappointed me because he has kept his game real & bling free. With Lil Wayne & Twista on the roster, I sense the struggle is over for Alc & he'll be all over the airwaves sounding and looking like everyone else. Nice knowing ya Alc, I'll just keep bumping your old school stuff, thanks for the production though.
