Customer Reviews

So far from beginning to end the entire album has been great.
Matt J. Rose
The album is most definitely the best rap album of the year and in my opinion the best of his career.
Charles Favors
I like Akon and T-Pain, but aren't these guys on too many records now?

Twista returns with his latest album "Category F5" and I must say, it exceeded my expectations. Then again, I didn't really have high expectations after I purchased his last album (the much hyped AR 2007).
This album is definitely a step up from the previous effort, but not as big of an improvement as the Chicago native needed. There isn't anything really memorable about this album, besides the I-Tunes bonus track "Alright" feat. Kanye West and the cut/leaked "Problems" with Tech N9ne.
Collaborations are weak too, as it seems Twista looks to find artists who won't out shine him on his own LP. The most notable collaboration comes from Akon, on the record "On Top." The beat is catchy, the lyrics are boring and he needed a song with Akon like he needs a whole in the head. I like Akon and T-Pain, but aren't these guys on too many records now? A song with Akon would have been cool on "The Day After," but these days Akon and T-Pain are a little tiring.
Overall, a Twista fan will appreciate this album. It isn't bad by any means, but it isn't a record you'll spin often. The album lacks lyrical content (I expect better from Twista), beats and just about everything. And it's disappointing, because I believe Twista is capable of making a solid album, but he's running out of time...

I've listened to this album many times now and I can't really bring myself to recommend it as a whole. There are parts of it that serve as glimmers of hope that the Adrenaline Rush era Twista has made a return, but then those are squashed by too many filler tracks. There's the token Akon feature (vomit), which I'm sure will be the next single released, and a few others that just seem phoned in.

The first track on the album, Misunderstood, is awesome. Great production, fire from Twista, and a good feature from Buk of Psychodrama make this the highlight song on the album. However, just as you think the album is going to make up for some of Twista's recent stumbles, he sucks himself back into his habit of churning out poppy, radio-friendly (i.e. uninteresting, uncreative) tracks. A potentially superb collaboration with Do or Die is unfortunately dragged down by a complete garbage chorus, which is a shame because at first this song harkens back to the days of 'Legit Ballers' and other Speedknot Mobstaz tracks. And in another collaboration that could have been excellent, but wasn't, Lil Boosie is misused in a token weed song. The R. Kelly collaboration, Yellow Light, should have been renamed Red Light, because this forgettable song should have been left on the cutting room floor from the beginning.

It's not all bad..although quite a bit of it is. Some of the tracks that are promising or somewhat enjoyable include Talk To Me, Jump Off, and American Gangster. Interestingly enough, the tracks that are the most worthwhile are the ones where Twista isn't collaborating with other rappers (Misunderstood being the one exception).

Overall, I give this a 2.

AR97 was by far Twista's best album followed by Kamikaze and The Day After which commercially was his best album. Expecting this trend to continue, AR07 was a huge disapointment and this is coming from a career long Twista fan. Being from Detroit, we have a music style like no other (Bone THUGS, C.C., Da Brat, etc) so we expect certain sounds from our artist and Twista stepped far beyond that style on AR07, it felt very southern and overdone, nothing close to AR97. Well hes come a lot closer to AR97 with this offering in Cat F5. OK so the truth is he does too much with southern rappers that have no business being on his albums (Lil Boosie, Gucci Mane!?) Im not hating on the south but if hes going to go bar for bar with them, he needs someone on his level, maybe Andre 3000, Lil Wayne. "Wetter" is what I think Twista fans look for, "Misunderstood" for example when hes by himself or someone that compliments him, not just for the radio appeal. I hope Twista sticks to this formula for future CD's and I realize artist have to expand but AR07 was not it.

I'm not exaggerating. Auto-tune sucks the life out of hip-hop. If I was king for a day, we would destroy whatever device creates the auto-tune effect and we would shoot the producers who are using it. Auto-tune sucks! I cannot say that enough.

I've been a Twista fan since he released "Kamikaze" back in 2004. I would rather play "The Day After" or even "Adrenaline Rush 2007" than this album - not because Twista sucks or is without talent, but because auto-tune is s---. I hate it, hate it, hate it.

The auto-tune effects RUIN every song. Hopefully, Twista will never, ever, under any circumstances, use said effect again.

Keep hip-hop PURE, not computerized!

If the Wu-Tang Clansmen start using this effect, I'm gonna kill myself...but not until I've taken the rest of the auto-tuners with me.

Peace.

I downloaded the MP3 album as I could not wait for Best Buy to open plus Amazon's price is always a nice savings compared to retail, but as usual, I am hooked on another Twista album. I just love his style, everything from the beats, to his lyrics & sound affects, just flows as cool as the other side of the pilow. If you are a fan of his, get it, especially if you have a nice sound system, the songs hit really hard.
