Adding the third and final notch to his "Volume" series, I think Hov returns to playing to his lyrical strengths and is a lot more wiser with beat selections- the highs on this album nearly put the last two project's best efforts to shame.

This album isn't fantastic, but I'm still incredibly proud of Jay and what he's assembled here. For me, and even a lot of die-hard JAY-Z fans, there has been a certain level of quality he set on "Reasonable Doubt" that ... read more
