8/10. Great album, not really 3 Feet High/Stakes is High standard but easily on par with their other work.

I voted a 9....Their best work since "Stakes is High".

All in all I'd rank it as above the two AOI albums but not better than Stakes, 3 feet, Buhloone, or dead....One of the best records of the new millenium though, and Rock Ko. Kane flow is the best song I've heard in years.
