As far as Eric B. & Rakim albums go, I probably enjoy this one the most from beginning to end. That is largely due to '92 production being so great when compared to E&R's previous albums. Apart from a few songs in the middle that I don't feel a lot ('Rest Assured' - 'Relax With Pep') it starts and finishes well. A consistent listen throughout the twelve tracks.

Best Tracks: What's on Your Mind, Pass the Hand Grenade, Keep the Beat, Know the Ledge
Of the 4 Eric B & Rakim albums, their last one probably is the most underappreciated. Sonically slightly different yet again from the previous albums, we see a Rakim who lyrically still has no peer and even drops some socially conscious rhymes this time around, along with his usual skill-flexing.
