- Pitchfork (8.5 out of 10) - "Only two things matter here: the production, which is masterful, and Beanie himself, a virtuoso of lonely, bitter desperation. "
- Entertainment Weekly [15 Apr 2005, p. 78] (83% out of 100%)-Finds him at his most vulnerable—and his best.
- Stylus Magazine (B+) - "One of the strongest albums of 2005, Beanie Sigel stands among the greatest of the Roc-A-Fella catalogue with technical ability and an emotional severity worth experiencing."
- New Musical Express [23 Apr 2005, p. 51](NME)- "As defiant as ever."
- All Music Guide - "Those looking for a direct story of how Beanie earned three years in the clink will be somewhat disappointed, but these chunks of insight into the man's turmoil -- and the couple party tunes that go with them - add up to one hell of an album."
- Top 50 albums of 2005 by pitchfork media: number 32.
