Lightning Strikes is a studio album by American rapper Aceyalone.[4] It was released on Decon in 2007.[4] The production is handled by Bionik.[4]

Critical reception[edit]

Nate Patrin of Pitchfork gave the album a 5.5 out of 10, saying, "The problem is that, even with Aceyalone's lyrical style toned down a little, the attempted merging of underground rap and pop-reggae makes Lightning Strikes sort of a mess, even if it's the kind of mess where half the tracks are fairly likable."[4] Scott Thill of XLR8R gave the album a 7 out of 10, saying, "Yes, anything from Acey is worth your cash, but I can't wait until he goes retro with analog drums on reel-to-reel."[6]
