    I'm a Ross fan and I say it was easily his worst work with the least replay value. I believe he can come back tho, but I dont think his sales will ever be as solid seeing how finicky hip hop is and how long the average rapper's prime is. Ross has been above average with his six five year peak..

    I was dissapointed initially because I have high expectations for Ross but I ***** with the album even though it's one of his weaker efforts.
