I really enjoyed Talib Kweli & Hi-Tek's "Reflection Eternal". This completes the trilogy of Black Star's "Mos Def And Talib Kweli Are Black Star", Mos Def's "Black on Both Sides", and "Reflection Eternal". I can only imagine what Black Star's second album will be like when Mos Def and Talib Kweli join again with the production skills of Hi-Tek. This is one of the few Hip Hop albums you can listen from track one to track twenty without fast forwarding, well, let's make the twenty-one because of the enlightening hidden track "For Women". After "Move Somethin" the album only get more poetic and visual. Talib drops lyrical science you have to almost swear he had to earn a Ph.d. to verbally express the knowledge he delievers. Talib cares more about his underground following rather than selling out and trying to be commerical.
This is not an album about the bling, bling, violence, disrespecting women, etc., this is an album enlightening and uplifting the mind while grooving to some hypnotic beats that helps keep the head noddin'. I love how the album relates at some many levels from Black pride and unity, love for women, and keeping the faith while believing in God, and keeping Him foremost at the front of one's life! Always keep God first in everything you do, and everything you need will soon follow!
There's hit after hit on this album, and when Talib's Black Star partner Mos Def joins him on "This Means You" it brings the power of Black Star, and let's not forget "Down For The Count" when Rah Digga and Xzibit help rock the mic. Cool G Rap, Vinia Mojica, Les Nubians and De La Soul also lend their voices to some powerful tracks that enlighten and entertain.

True hip hop heads have always known that Talib Kweli is a nice emcee. Still, for most of his career Kweli has been overshadowed by his long-time partner, Mos Def. On thier joint project, "Black Star", Mos Def came off nicer than Kweli, and Mos Def released his solo album a full year before Kweli did the same. However, after listening to "Train of Thought", any doubts about Kweli's ability will be eliminated.
The 21 tracks on this album (including skits) are diverse, ranging from up-tempo bangers to quiet and introspective. The album starts off with a bang with "Move Somethin'", a straight-up bumping horn-influenced track which Kweli absolutely kills. The momentum is kept up with the nice "Some Kind of Wonderful". Subsequently the album mellows out a bit, as Mos Def makes an appearance on the jumpy "This Means You," a feel good track with absolutely unforgettable violin chords. The album abruptly ends the mellow vibe with the funky "Down For The Count" in which Xzibit and Rah Diggah drop some of thier nicest verses to date. Highlights from the second half of the album include "Ghetto Afterlife," (featuring Kool G Rap), "Love Language," and the hidden track "For Women."
DJ Hi-Tek produces the entire album (a rarity in hip hop these days) and doesn't make one wack track. He chooses from a variety of instruments, and gives each track its own unique feel. For example, a tranquil saxaphone plays during the thoughtful "Love Language" whereas bold horns scream on the battle-track "Move Somethin.'" The fact that Hi-Tek is in on every track gives the album a continuity, as no track sounds out of place.

You may not think this review should even be considered when i tell you im a 13 year old white kid who usualy listens to classic rock, punk, and metal but if thats what u think, dont read it.

I got this CD becuase a freind suggested it. I was a little wary because i HATE basically all the rap/hip-hop thats on mtv.Lyrics about crunk,and bling are stupid and shallow as hell. But, after gettting this album i realized, not all rap is crap.

WOW-is all i can say, this album is amazing. Talib Kwali has the most amazing rhymes ive ever heard. His lyrics arent just about having bling or being crunk, there about his real life and topics that matter.Oh, and Hi Tek's beats are amazing. I love almost every song on here.

If u like hip jop or rap or are tired of todays rap music or what ever, u MUST get this!!!

Here's a funny story

I was in school today, and i was listening to this album. I was listening to the great last song, when my friend spots me and asks if he can see what i was listening to. I show him that it was Talib Kweli. His first words "who's that?"

I say, he's a really good rapper, u might like him. He asks to listen, and i let him. After 5-10 seconds he shrugs it off and chuckles. "thats not really good". Actually, you have no taste I tell him. "yeah i do" he assures me. "who's your favorite rapper?" "50 Cent and G-unit."

Point made.

That just shows you that people nowadays dont care about substance, or skill. Talib Kweli's music has a ton of substance to it. He also has amazing lyrics, and great metaphors that come so quickly and work so well with every beat. And Hi-Tek's beats are all amazing But i guess that kind of skill doesn't matter. He doesn't talk violently, and he doesnt have repetitive beats to go with his songs, or weak lyrics but catchy hooks made to sell albums. But then again, it seems that great hip hop is no longer appreciated. not many people are listening to old school rap, 90s rap like 2pac and biggie, or todays stuff, like nas and talib kweli. They only like 50, and he is the definition of good hip hop. Please, if you are fed up with 50's voice on the radio, buy this album, and support a really great modern rapper.
