"After getting the 1st 2 albums by LOTUG when they came out i was dying to get this a.s.a.p. To be honest i wasnt sure how they would come back (a point that Mr.Funkee talks about in the intro) and was actually surprised, but pleased for the most part. 2 things made this album different from the jump, (1)theres alot of interludes which they never really did before and i think they just waste time and (2)Lord Jazz handles the production instead of Marley Marl, with K-Def only doing the one track, Govna-matic doing one and A kid called Roots doing 2. Other than that its the same recipe as before, funky beats and party rhymes galore. Both Doitall and Mr.Funkee sound sharp as nails like the time away only wetted their appetites for more while Jazz' production is excellent and diverse throughout. Although in my humble opinion there were afew weak tracks such as "Earth, Wind & Fire", "One Day" and possibly "Hennessey-pt.1" (compared to pt.2 its inferior) overall it doesnt take too much away from the album's quality. The remaining joints are brilliant with such standouts as "Retaliate" (brilliant comeback), "If you..." (classic Lords), "Take dat" (2nd best track here), "Blow your mind" (best track, simply outstanding), "Excuse me" (like pt.2 of "lord jazz hit me one time" from their debut album) and "Exodus" (a perfect ending to the album). We wait with bated breath for the 4th installment. God knows hiphop needs it at the moment."
