    Comment: This album is amazing. Kweli shows his diversity, throwing down dark grungy tracks, light-hearted positive songs, and everything in between. The production is top notch...i thought it sucked when I downloaded the torrent, but when I got the cd I completely changed my mind on that one. High Tech is a musical genius. ----------------------------------------------------------------------If you want an album with a wide variety of hip hop styles, high quality production, maximum replay value, and rhymes from a still-hungry, conscious, veteran MC, then get this album.

    Comment: Their first album is one of my favorites of all time so was looking forward to see how this came together, especially since the last couple of talib solo joints didnt agree with me fully. I would have to say the same applies here. While there are some tracks on here that are very nice, about half just dont appeal to me. Production seems a little to soft or radio freindly. Black gold, my life, lifting off, back again are the vibes that I wanted throughout this, but those sounds are just sprinkles mixed in with a unique salad of other tones. With the MP3 craze these days to actually buy a physical album you need it fresh from front to back, still luv u guys but maybe next time!

    Comment: Talib kweli and Hi Tek together on an lp???that's sounds great, and the expectation was high... Obviously this only could be a great disapointing...if you're a hip hop addict of course... you got songs here that are mix up with other styles. For finish, this one is not a bad lp, but if you're a hip hop junkie like myself, you can only ear 2 or 3 tracks. WORD

    Comment: Luvin this!!!! No where as good as 'Reflection Eternal' but remember De la Soul '3 feet high and rising' debut??? That was critically acclaimed and won a grammy but when 'De la soul is dead' was released b-boys and B-girls worldwide were initially dissapointed. Now most folks including myself feel 'De la Soul is Dead' is an absolute masterpiece with time. To paraphrase 'Will this release be seen to be more dope than the debut in years to come???

    Comment: Must admit this one let me down.. only a couple tracks have the feel of the 1st album (Strangers, In This World, My Life) other than that it sounds like Warner Bros. had more of a hand in the selection of songs than Talib or Tek did. in response to Lars, Drake is for the little kiddies. review his album on his own page

    Comment: That's true... If you like Talib in the 90's, you CAN'T be disappointed by the range of subject matter in RPM. Where he lacks "somewhat" in delivery, Hi-Tek makes up for with some smooth organic drums. It's positive music overall that the newer generations can look up to... And speaking of the new generation, PLEASE do keep an eye on the up-and-coming MC's in the game, particularly the ones on THIS album, J. Cole and Jay Elect. Wale and KiD CuDi too, who dropped their debuts in '09. You had the generation of cats like Little Brother, Kanye West, and Slum Village who passed the torch on, making upbeat music representin the "common man". And now Hip-Hop is startin to revive itself. I WILL lookout for Drake's release, but don't overhype him LARS, cuz right now, I would put B.o.B's official debut over his...

Its not Train Of Thought but not many albums come close either. I feared this was gonna be wack 'cuz of HiTek's last album (no worries when it comes to Talib) but they pulled of a nice one.

    Comment: This album ain't bad at all. Production could've been a little better but not bad. I listen to this album twice already and I like it. Kweli is still a dope MC and still sounds the same from their first album. The production just don't sound the same but Folks were in 2010. It should sound different from their first album. Bottom line this album is good and well worth the purchase.

I dont mean to hate oak, but damn give some credit, 1 star?

    Comment: What up DATn*ggaBEON! Long time, no see... Hey man, I could name PLENTY of classic potential on this joint. It depends on really what you looking for in a hit. "Strangers" with Bun-Beata!, "In This World", even "Midnight Hour" would be a classic club record if it got as much rotation as Talib's "Never Been In Love" did. (produced by Just Blaze, of course) But the one that I would say you couldn't deny is "Just Begun"... Everything from the sample choice in the beat to the high-lyrical lineup... What more could you possibly want on a record like that? 2 legendary NY heavyweights and 2 up-and-coming Southern BEASTS on the mic! All of that over fluid Hi-Tek production. Not one MC slacked on it either. I know my boy J. Cole ripped it apart... "n*ggas say they sick, but when they rock, they don't sneeze / Like the n*gga on the block wavin' his glock, but won't squeeze / ...PLEASE!!!"

    Comment: I second that... In fact, I would even say that Hi-Tek's production on this record SOMEWHAT outshines Talib's delivery. And I already know that's hard to say cuz that's like comparing apples to oranges, but... Simply put, with the creative & relevant substance laid out on these evolved & transcending sounds, I think this album is on par with Train of Thought, if not better...

I found the production to be pretty smooth, everything flows together nicely. Black Gold is DOPE. anyway, give it an uninterrupted listen and see what you think.

    Comment: Just what I expected : lame and watered down album.Talib is soft with his style indeed.The main problem with artists today in hip hop is I think the more they try to get "artisticly" and "mature" the more they lose on their edge.where's that raw hip hop those two were known for ? The best production hi-tek ever did was on mood album.remember the high quality rhymes talib spit on that album ? and than they released the classic 12" single Fortified Live / 2000 Seasons,that was the time when those two were among my favorites.and than came reflection eternal self titled album ( or train of thought ),that album was "just" solid, no way it can be called classic in same rank with illmatic, stress:extinction agenda, four horsemen, boxcar sessions, the sun rises in the east, etc, etc.so people if something isn't good enough, please don't be afraid to say it.PEACE !

    Comment: I am not dissapointed. I mean let's be real, everybody that was a fan of train of thought new that this ablum would not live up to it's standards. They are a decade between each other and alot has changed between talib and hi-tek as individual artists. They are not hungry as they used to be so we have to just face that fact. Now to me, the album starts off very slow. The production in the begining seems weak and uninspired. In overall sound, talib still sounds the same, just not as hungry as ten years ago. IMO, the best beats are between Lifting off and Ends. Hopefully they will get the spirit back in them like they did in their earlier years.

The lyrics are good but these 2 didn't mesh together like they did on there first album...Just because you like an artists previous wk doesn't mean your going to like all there wk....

    Comment: Kweli and Hi-Tek have done it again. 5 stars for the instrumentals and 5 stars for kweli's flow. I think he's one of the best MC's making music right now. I've never been disappointed with any of his albums.

    Comment: Soft?? no disrespect Enalyst, but in which way? No, this isnt like or even better than the first reflection but it has great content and an overall great listen. yes, kweli changed up his flow over the years but his lyricism is still on point and is just trying to grow as an artist/label runner. your not going to get another train of thought and the same as your not gonna get another illmatic, but this album is still on point. I bet if people listen to it all the way through a few times it will be hot. hi-tek like 9th wonder always experiments with different sounds and with this album I can see the direction they wanted to go. before knocking this, actually listen to it first. peace and respect

    Comment: ** for actually releasing it after a long time. Think hi-tek's association wit snoop compromised his hard productions. Talib has been soft lately - dnt feel him like on train of though - he was a hungry emcee then. Respects

    Comment: Not as good as the 1st one they released, but this still brings that pure Hip-Hop to the game, which we need today. Lars needs to stay the f*ck in Europe and stop giving out bad reviews like he's the "God of rating albums".

    Comment: 12 Years ago this would have been and average album. Today, people will give it 5 stars. I personally found myself hitting the fast forward button too many times to give this more than 3 stars. It is actually a 3 1/2 to me. Jay Elect killed his verse...so that was a big plus...otherwise...I would say buy the album but don't expect to be blown away...But it is better than 90% of hip hop released nowadays.

    Comment: It's good to see veterans in the game still setting the STANDARD for innovation, as Reflection Eternal & Distant Relatives are runnin neck-and-neck. Hi-Tek slays all the beats, particularly on "In This World" with them 808's and the Jay-Z sample. Also, the beat on "Midnight Hour", very reminiscent of Quincy Jones. Talib kicks dat knowledge proper on "Ballad of the Black Gold", "Ends", and "In The Red". And always of course, I love the guest appearances from the South's new frontrunners - J. Cole & Jay Electronica. I would've liked to see a visit from Jean Grae & S.A.S. as well, but it's all good. Hats off to the legendary duo of Reflection Eternal...

    Comment: Classic. Kweli is always surprising me, I still cant believe hes still so effective and creative with his rhymes he doesnt miss a step. it nostalgic 2 think this is reflection eternal once again. thought provoking, makes u feel that life is much bigger than u as he address todays current events n issues. must own.

    Comment: Wow... I think Hi-Tek is outdoing himself on this production from what I've been hearing from the singles. The beats are very vibrant and organic. Talib comes correct as always. They've got a tracklist and official album cover. Not sure why is not up here yet...

    Comment: Yeah, "Just Begun" is one of the official singles from the album. They've got 3 other singles out too, a couple of videos as well. They might be pushing this release back though, cuz I haven't seen any cover art anywhere. This album is gonna be one of the top releases of 2010 next to LB's LeftBack and Lupe Fiasco's Lasers...

    Comment: Man oh man... one of the illest tracks coming out in 2010 is up here... "Just Begun"!!! It's got Jay Electronica, it's got North Carolina's new upcomer J. Cole (he rips the track, by the way! Carolina STAND UP!), AND it's got Mos Def on it. Now that's 2 veteran high-lyrical New York MC's PLUS 2 new and fresh high-lyrical Southern MC's, MULTIPLIED by Hi-Tek on the beats... C'mon son, you do the math... It equals SUPREME HOT FIRE!!!!!!
