Comment: I thought this was a pretty good album when it dropped but I'll admit after a couple listens it was put on the backburner for some more important releases around that time (Kendrick GKMC, Apollo/Guilty, Sean Price, Roc Marc, Action/ALC, etc). I've always have been a huge Skyzoo fan since Corner Store Classics and Salvation is one of my personal favorite albums...perhaps at first couple listens I though it was under-whelming….let's fast forward a few years. Recently, I've been playing back all of Sky's discography to get me ready for Music For My Friends and I have been bumping this album a lot lately; it‘s really grown on me the past couple months. I love the more ambient production on this album and the messages through out. "Realization" became one of my fav Skyzoo songs almost overnight and always had “Hysteria" and “RR Rhythm" on repeat at the gym tho. Can't wait to hear what next from dude--a solid 4.

Comment: This album is dope, I loved the production. It was a nice change of pace. It wasn't typical boom bap but it wasn't main stream either. The lyrics/content was also on point.

Comment: Horrible album. The salvation was fantastic. Live from the tape deck was decent. This was just appallingly awful. I would give it zero stars if I could.

Comment: First off Skyzoo has the potential for a classic album. His first joint was good, but not classic. Unfortunately, as much as it pains me to say, this one is worse. Not horrible by any means. But, like Oddisee's new album which is also still okay, didn't live up to the expectation and hype. Too much R&B on the hooks. Okay maybe one or two songs at the most, otherwise leave it out. Beats are watered down. However, I love Skyzoo and his potential, but I don't see this album getting long-term heavy rotation. His best project to date is The Great Debater mixtape. There's always next time I guess. Damn I was looking forward to this too!

Comment: Solid album, clean, original, fresh and soft. Skyzoo is one of the rare artist who really focus on the flow and prod quality. He got all my respect for that, he is already a hip hop reference. Never Stop Skyzoo, we love what do and I feel ya! Nuth respect from France and Guadeloupe!

Comment: Given the title, that explains the cover to say the least, but you know old saying, "Don't judge a book by it's cover." Skyzoo is dope. Best covers though, Sean Price, and Craig G. Simple and plain.

Comment: Skyzoo is dope, but that has to be the gayest album cover in the history of mankind. Seriously, all its missing is him riding a unicorn on a rainbow shooting skittles out of his butthole. Seriously, is the alternate cover him shooting a watergun full of Jesus Juice at a group of men dressed as shirtless sailors???
