Timbaland was known as an innovative producer before deciding to make a name for himself; on his second album, he shows that he keeps his best tracks stockpiled for the home team. When he raps, "He said 'Timbaland can't rap' / But I don't care / Because I make dope tracks / I make you bounce and wiggle / And do this and that," it's no idle boast; it hasn't been this much fun to strap yourself into a pair of headphones in years. --Randy Silver

Top Notch Production Is The Focus (4 Stars)

"When cats like Timbaland drop an album, you pretty much know already that the focus is on the beats instead of the rhymes. And I have to say that the beats on this album were some of the tightest out at the time. I want to say that Tim is the best producer to ever come out of Virginia, but The Neptunes are running neck and neck with Mr. Mosley (with Nottz holding down 3rd place). The guest appearances are even tight. There are a lot of no names on this album along with the usual suspects like Jay Z, Missy, Magoo, Nas, Aaliyah, Skillz (aka Mad Skillz)Ginuwine, and Ludacris (this was actually my first time ever hearing of Ludacris). Even Twista comes through and tears a Timbaland beat to shreds. There really aren't any negative things to be said about this album. Even the no name artists hold down their positions very well.
Basically, this album is a showcase for Tim's beats. We all know this. And the beats on this album don't disappoint. It's a great addition to your collection and still bumps even today. Tim has changed up his production schemes since this release, but this is still some of his best stuff. I'd suggest getting this album if you haven't heard it already.
Standout Tracks: Lobster & Scrimp feat. Jay Z, Fat Rabbit feat. Ludacris, Here We Come feat. Missy & Magoo, Who Am I feat. Twista (My Favorite), To My feat. Nas & Mad Skillz, and Bringin' It"

"The only weakness on this CD is that Timbaland can't rap, which he rarly does does on this disc. It's more of a mix tape and an album combined. He uses some newer artists on here which is suprising, but NAS and Jay-Z do represent on here along with the usuals Missy and Maggo. Maybe he wanted his beats to be the focus of this album, as well they should be. Songs like Here we Go, Wathca Talkin' Bout, and Who Am I (with Twista goin' off) hook you in immediatly, while song like What You Know About this and To My reel you in slowly with thier cachy choruses and infectious beats. You won't be able to get these songs out of your head. The R&B part of the tape is not as strong (with Keep it Real starring) but is solid. A good buy for any music fan, and a must have collection from the best producer in hip-hop for any fan of the genre."
