3.5 greatCrazyDrummer4562 | April 21st 11

such...fat...beats, absolutely love them on this record. The vocals are a bit all over the place which works sometimes, but definitely aren't up to black on both sides caliber.

4.5 superbcharles boyd | August 31st 09

On the Roots' title track of "Rising Down," Mos Def's verse evidenced that he was still, indeed, the same guy from blackstar and the author of the excellent "black on both sides," despite the mediocre solo albums that followed it. The Ecstatic is Mos Def back on form. The beats are excellent, weird, varied and his flows match perfectly. From the gritty fuzz on Supermagic with his mushmouthed delivery to the too-smart-for-the-club banger of Life in Marvelous Times, to the all-percussion poetry of Quiet Dog Bite Hard, the poetry and rhythm of Mos Def's verses that made him famous are back.

4.0 excellentDan Zhang | July 26th 09

This album was way overdue. Mos Def's releases over the last few years seemed to stagnate in a manner of recycled beats and hooks, probably due to his focus being redirected toward his acting career. The Ecstatic is truly a return to form with brilliant lyricism and beats hot n' fresh outta the oven.

3.5 greatIAmSupreme | June 19th 09

After further listening and a different state of mind/perspective on the album, the latter tracks became much more enjoyable and a nice break from the more "hardcore" first 7 tracks.
