Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Give Eve credit for not succumbing to hip-hop's fickle feminine fetishization. While Foxy Brown and Lil' Kim have degenerated into scantily clad clichés, Eve (the self-described "pitbull in a skirt") has maintained her rougher edge without sacrificing a whit of her sexy energy. "Pretty with the heels on, or shitty with the Timbos," is how she puts it on "Gangsta Bitches," one of the standout tracks from this, her second, album. Eve's clearly progressed as a lyricist, though her flow is occasionally on-the-beat clunky. That aside, she switches easily from anti-hater anthems ("Cowboy") to bitter revenge fantasies (the power-guitar-driven "You Had Me, You Lost Me") to straight-up bragging ("Got What You Need"). Throughout, she's assured and poised, matching Teena Marie's manic torch-song energy on "Life Is So Hard" and outshining most of her Ruff Ryder partners elsewhere. But, secure as she may be, Eve realizes that the game doesn't always last: "I'm trying to make a quick flip, nigga. Can you dig this?" she asks on "Cowboy." Sexy and smart. What's not to dig? --Jon Caramanica

4.0 out of 5 stars Eve goes for the Killer sting on this one! March 6, 2001
By I.B.
Format:Audio CD
This new one from Eve is far from a sophomore jinx. Overall I like this album better than the first. The only reason I didnt give it 5 stars is because some of the beats could have been better. She gives us a lot more lyrically this time around with tracks like "Be Me", "Life is so hard" and "Let me blow ya mind". The best duets on the album are with Dmx and Gwen Stefani of No doubt. These 2 tracks should be released. Dr. Dre hooked up the track with gwen with a tight beat that will probably be a big hit for eve. After hearing this you imagine what her album would be like if dre produced the whole thing. Dmx and Eve run through it on Double R. It sounds like it could be another ruff ryders anthem. There is a lot of different kinds of music on this. Soul, reggae, calypso, hip-hop, R+B, and some down south music. I think she was going for a cross-over album with this one. The songs I like the most are: 2,3,4,16,14,13,11,10, and 11. This album grows on you so the more you listen I think the more you will like it. Dont sleep on this album any longer...get it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Italian Ice May 11, 2001
Format:Audio CD
If there is one thing to say about most follow up albums is that they [stink]. Eve's doesn't [stink], but contrary to what I have read other places, it is not the best I have heard. I am starting to get sick of every Ruff Ryders album having lame skits, lame guest appearances, and the same beat, for the most part. What keeps this album alive is tracks like "You Had Me, You Lost Me", "Let Me Blow Ya Mind", and the song that she does with Damian & Steven Marley called "No, No, No". Weak appearances from The Lox, Drag-On, Da Brat, and Trina dilute this album and make it only three stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars December 18, 2006
Format:Audio CD
With most rappers, after having a double platinum debut they lose their hunger and become way too cocky. This is not the case with Eve. On her sophomore album, she is more hungry than ever before. She is confident, not cocky, and delivers some of the best rhymes ever to come out of the mouth of a female emcee. (And she even does some singing on here! And she can actually carry a tune.) The beats on here, once again, are top notch on every song. There are a few too many guest appearances, but that really proves to be this album's only flaw. This album is a huge improvement from her okay first, Let There Be Eve... In my eyes, this is a hip hop classic and everyone should at least give it a listen. I bump this one start to finish. I highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars More Eve May 25, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Eve, a tough uncompomising rapper combinating female anthems and non-nonsense uptempos, had great success with her debut album "Ruff Ryders First Lady" that was produced mostly by Swizz Beats from just the Ryff Ryders group, hence the name. The album was one of the best Hip Hop albums of that year, and was also critically acclaimed, but she didn't get alot of hits from that one. 2 years later in 2001, comes her sophmore album that is quite simular acually. But Swizz Beats had less impact on the songs this time, producing only 5 and letting other Ruff Ryder Protegés (Teflon & Dj Shock) and then Dr. Dre and his crew shining on some songs. Like other reviewers already mentioned, If you liked Eve's debut you'll like this one too, It's an equally strong effort with great songs combinating both street credability/commercial appeal and great lyrics that sometimes are quite deep aswell. First song "Cowboy" is a decent starter, but it's song number 2 and 3 that made Eve a hit-machine. The first one being the Latin inspired Swizz Beats song "Who's That Girl" (bigger hit in Europe then in Usa) and then "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" a commercial beat orineted song that reached a fantastic #2 position on the Bilboard charts. That song feautured Gwen Stefani and production from Dr. Dre and his protegés Mike Elizondo and Scott Storch (both of them are today top producers on their own). The album moves on with a rendez-vu from her last album called "You Had Me, You Lost Me" a female anthem about leaving a man that can't behave. A super catchy Swizz Beats song called "Got What You Need" with Drag-On, why wasn't it a single?. Two other female rappers Da Brat and Trina joins in on "Gangsta B__ch" a decent song aswell while Dre's crew shines again on "That's What It Is" where Styles P appears. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good album June 4, 2005
By Sox Fan
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album back in 2001 and it was pretty good. I was really into commercial hip-hop at the time and Let Me Blow Ya Mind is why I chose to buy it. I hadn't listened to Scorpion for probably two years and after listening to it again I like it even more. Even though I'm into old school hip-hop now I really think this is a good album. I still like some of today's rap but for the most part it's garbage to me. I don't turn away from commercial hip-hop but I just dont enjoy a lot of it as much. Eve really did a good job of making Scorpion appeal to a mainstream audience without going too commercial. It's not a classic but all in all it's a very good effort from Eve. She has good lyrics and at time really has great flow.

Overall-8.5/10

1. Intro- N/A

2. Cowboy-9/10

3. Who's That Girl-9.5/10(great song when it came out and it still sounds fresh today. Teflon's production was amazing on this song.

4. Let Me Blow Ya Mind-9.5/10(Great production by Dre and Storch. With the exception of G-Unit I like everything Aftermath has been putting out the past 5 years.)

5. 3 Way(Skit)-N/A

6. You Had Me,You Lost Me-9.5/10(I love the sample from Eric B. is President during the chorus. Good lyrics from Eve.)

7. Got What You Need-8/10(Chorus get's extremely annoying. Everything else is good too even though nothing important is said)

8. Frontin(skit)

9. Gangsta Bitch-9/10(funny thing is that I hated it when i bought the cd. i love the beat but lyrics arn't anything special.)

10. That's What It Is-10/10(amazing production by Dre. What more do I need to say.)

11. Scream Double R-8.5/10(nice guest appearence by DMX.)

12. Thug In the Street-7/10(ok)

13. No,No,No-7.5/10

14. You Aint Gettin None-7/10

15. Life Is So Hard-9.5/10

16. Be Me-8.5/10

I purchased this cd used for the song "Who's that Girl," only. The rest of the cd does nothing for me. To each his own, I guess.
