    Actually this album is not that bad. Don't Approach Me with Eminem is timeless. There's some banger tracks on here. And his letter to his kid aka Sorry I'm Away So Much is real. Good album. I'd say 6 or 7 outta 10, a BIG dissapointment would be a 3 or 4 outta 10.

    Restless is a decade old today; this l.p. finally brought Xzibit in to the mainstream world and showed his true skill.

    LOL @ restless being a disappointment...

    that was xzibits PEAK!!!!!!!!

    the potential, was fully realized...

    when X to the Z, dropped restless!!!!!!!!!!

    one of the purest west coast albums ever..

    lyrical execution, over big budget productions, with dre laying the final touches, to the mix, and sequencing....

    xzibit had one of the best 3 album runs in history, niggas have short memories... his first 3 albums, all built on the previous release, he took no short cuts...

    xzibit was able to MAX his draw, without any artistic compromise!!!!!!!!!!

    the albums that followed?!!?!?!? yeah.... BIG DISAPPOINTMENTS!!!!!!!!

    but restless?!!?!?!!?!? one of the biggest/best albums to drop from the west coast.. if restless was a letdown, man vs machine wouldnt have ruined niggas years like it did, cuz theyd be expecting it!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I bought this album on day one and I was far from disapointed.

    Restless is his last good album. The albums he did after that suck because of bad beats. What a shame because he's a very good rapper.

    I wouldnt call it a dissapointment, but I didnt like it as much as his first 2, just a less Dark album then At The Speed Of Life, and Less Aggressive then 40 Dayz/40 Nightz, so if thats what you go in expecting then yeah you'll be left dissapointed, you just gotta look at the album for what it is: A West Coast Banger with Mainstream, Crossover appeal built into it

    I'd put it on the same level with Game's "Documentary" album, or even 50's "Get Rich Or Die Trying", no where near classic but it was a fun record full of great beats, great guest spots (That Song with Em for example, and the one with DJ Quik) and honestly I was surprised it didnt blow up bigger then it did

    peaking x ? lol

    at the speed of life was easily his best work but imo restless was better than 40 dayz

    who remembers when xzibit was smashed in the face with a jack daniels bottle ?
