""Double Or Nothing" has some of the deepest production sound of any hip hop album of the nineties. The beats are superb, "all killer no filler" as Sum 41 put it (a bad comparison).
I wonder why it never figures in any "Best Hip Hop Albums Of All Time" lists."
Erick sermons best

"I was chilling at home watching T.v. one day in '95 and saw the 'Bomdigi' video come on, I thought damn EPMD is over and I don't like this new style that Erick has come out with. After hearing it a few more times and seeing one of my uncles bought the album, I went out and bought it. I was listening to it on and on and on after that, there were a lot of lyrically better mc's that had came out then but this could hold its weight. The production was top class and all the beats were heavy and not one track was bad on the album. Its nice and chilled with good bass lines that bump nicely. Since then it's become like a part of my life and reminds me a lot of an era of my life where there was true skills and talent in hip hop that was gold. I got 3 copies thanks to my friend since It kept getting ruined in different ways. I also got a lot of my friends into this album late and they now know it as a true treasure like me and won't never let it go. Me and my friend even know the words on every track before E says them now which ain't the type of thing I normally do, thats how good this album is. If you are looking for the real hip hop, make sure you get this and don't forget it. It really is a classic album you will want for life. So I hope I helped you make the right decision in gettin it. for now, Peace!"

"Yeah I think this album is pretty tight. It has some nice layed back beats that make you get in that groove to bobb your head. I like just about every track on there.Move On feat. Redman and passion is one of the tightest joints of all time for me, Because back in 1995 Rap music was real tight and people was hungry and you know people had rapped better and beats was layed back. But back to the subject, Double Or Nothing is the best CD Erick had ever came out with besides No pressure and the other EPMD albums which was masterpieces. I don't really dig him no more because hes not in that vibe no more and he trying to change his style and that not good for him, it's only making him kinda wack. Only time I would listen to Erick if I had bought one of his old cds or if he was on somebody album and his verse was just some of that fire. I got respect for him but hes falling off and Keith murray is to and Redman (hate to say it) but their beats are not fitting there style and they need to go back to the way they was doing it like the Def Squad should do it. YEAH! This album is tight when Def Jam/RAL (rush associated labels) was on top and putting their artist on top and if I was anybody I would buy this album and Redman's Muddy waters and Keith Murrays 1996 hit Egnima album. Those are the CDs."
