As an avid fan of Three 6 Mafia, I must say When the Smoke Clears is quite the disappointment. A platinum album that was released in 2000. wedged between Chapter 2: World Domination (a 4/5) and Da Unbreakables (a 3.5/5), and contained the single "Sippin' On Some Syrup", I thought this would be excellent. But, it's just good. Overly bad Gangsta Boo appearances, astonishingly few Koopsta Knicca and Lord Infamous appearances, and multiple appearances from Project Pat who hadn't yet reached his peak confine this album to being just-good. Moreover, this isn't even Paul and Juiceman's best work on the boards. Very disappointing, but nevertheless, a good record.
