Talib has finally stepped right up to the plate and delivered something special. Each song has a totally different flow, attitude and style, yet they all blend together to take you on a journey. With many stand out tracks the album delivers on many different levels and serves as a delight to the ears, improving with each listen. To those who are still saying Talib isn't quite producing the goods yet - if this album isn't amazing, then i don't know what is. A must buy for any fan of true rap and hiphop who wants to listen to a poet flowing and rhyming about the truth. 5 out of 5 any day of the week.

Review 2 of 2
"Reflection Eternal" will be reflected eternally. "Quality" was quality throughout. "Beautiful Struggle" was a struggle between the underground and the radio; the struggle was not altogether too beautiful. After numerous delays, mixtapes, and release date evasions, "Eardrum" is upon us. It shines uniquely to each of his previous efforts: in comparison to "Beautiful Struggle," Kweli took two steps forward; in comparison to "Reflection Eternal," well, there is no comparison. No matter what, Kweli is an amazing lyricist, penning an incredibly captivating disc in "Eardrum." It was well worth the wait.
