    my first exposure to Talib Kweli, but I don't even want to listen to it that much now. Quality and RE are a lot, lot better...

    The mixtape version was better than the album. This could've been a great album if he didn't feel the need to throw in more wannabe soul/r&b hooks in it in order to appeal to the mainstream. John Legend and Anthony Hamilton ruined a lot of the album like that.
