Clipse Hell Hath No Fury
I kind of feel bad about rating this so low because while this album takes a sound to its qualitative extreme, it's just not a sound I'm interested in. Every song here could've been a radio hit, and any of those songs would've been the best thing on your local hip hop station circa-'06, but that's exactly the problem: this album is a collection of great singles pressed into a slightly monotonous whole. The production is always banging (save the closer Nightmares, which provided some much-needed variation), there are clever bars throughout ("get all of her twisting like Dickens"), but it never quite transcends the "guns, drugs and money" stere

Shad When This Is Over
There's no question that Shad is a talented MC. His flow hits a comfortable balance between relaxed and energetic, his rhyme schemes can be complex to the point of attention-grabbing, and his voice is generally easy on the ears. Only problem is that he doesn't do much to distinguish himself from other above-average "conscious" rappers. The production ranges from '90s throwback to more sleek and modern (at least for '06), and while none of the beats here are bad, few are exceptional. As a whole, this album doesn't have any sub-par tracks, but only 1 or 2 rise above the rest. Standout: I Get Down
