Summary: Chill Vibe
Comment: With Asheru and Talib on a track together there can be no wrong. The beat has a jazzy vibe to it, which is definitely nice to chill out and listen to. This song gets much love from me.

Comment: Asheru brings the beat and the lyrics, add Talib to the mix and you can't go wrong.

Comment: I heard this joint on Friday Night Flavas about a month ago and fell in love with it. The beat is nice but a lil’ to repetitive for me. If it weren’t for the horn coming in on the hook I would've dropped a point. Overall a dope song though.

Summary: Oh My God!!!!
Comment: This is the type stuff that makes me love hip-hop again. Asheru, you go god!
And Talib, on it too. “Sh*t man” is my only reaction!

Comment: So I won’t repeat what everyone else has said about this track. Dope production, nice flows, etc. Kweli comes off much better than on his new album, by far.

Summary: Classic Material
Comment: In my opinion, it’s about time somebody sampled the classic Duke Ellington and John Coltrane "In a Sentimental Mood" track off Coltrane's “Giant Steps” album (one of the top 5 jazz albums of all time, a revolutionary moment in Jazz). I am happy that Asheru has done this jazz classic justice as it deserves it.
The lyrics are again Asheru type lyrics, conscious and thought provoking.
This instrumental samples a classic and indisputable jazz track that changed jazz forever.

Summary: Tight Beat, And Flow...from Talib
Comment: Ash should stick more to producing cuz I didn't like the sax in there. It kinda killed the piano in there, but yet I rated good. I agree with the fact that Talib is just a way better lyricist than Asheru, but Ash still did a decent job.

Summary: Nicely Done
Comment: Okay, so this cat can produce too. It’s a nice drum loop but could use a break down. Nicely laid instruments, both chill and relaxed, while the sax is nice in the hook. Lyrically Talib outshines Asheru, of course, but Ash does a nice job here. I agree that the hook is wack.

Comment: Darn, didn’t know that Asheru could produce too, but holmes in righteous where most aren’t. Sticking to the recipe that has made Seven Heads and Asheru and Blue Black successful is “Mood Swing” featuring Talib Kweli. “Mood Swing” is one of those summertime-chocolate wrapped-freezy popped beats that words can’t explain. Sickening sax loops with a special piano sauce make this a debonair track. Talib touches on love and loss, some of the things that would explain the mood swings that everybody has with careful syntax. Although I like most of this, the rap and bullsh*t hook has to go.

Comment: Beat is both very smooth and jazzy. The MCs who are, in my opinion, some of the best around now- won’t disappoint!
