If you are a true fan go pick this up!

There are more solid bangers from the new album, and a wider range and variety of sound as well.
B. Hines
The rest of the album is basically the same as far as quality is concerned.

One of the enduring mysteries of music is how commercial success has eluded Clipse, a group that appeals to every demographic from hipsters to gangsters to suburban teen girls. After two (now three) acclaimed albums, four anthem-filled mixtapes and one staggeringly successful clothing line, Clipse are no longer waiting to be legitimized by the RIAA and have unapologetically assumed their roles as the "best duo ever." Alongside this swagger, Til The Casket Drops showcases a new repertoire that goes beyond the crack rap that has pigeonholed Clipse for so long and instead offers a deeper appreciation for life.

The confidence exuded on this album is exemplified by Pusha's parting words on the album's opening cut (Freedom), "I own you all." The journey through the rest of the record includes the catchy conceit of "Kinda Like a Big Deal" ("Lights, camera, action/ The chain itself's a dang distraction/We claim the belt/ The glory I bask in,") and the simple satisfaction of "I'm Good" ("I'm lookin' good, and I'm feelin' good/ Try and stop my shine/ I wish a brotha would.") On "Doorman" Clipse rap "Big charms, hanging from my big chain/ Swinging side to side, feelin' like I'm T-Pain." While on "Champion" they offer, "Overcame the odds/ So we overdo them cars/ We done balled around the world/ Now we reaching for them stars." The lyrical skill that gave them the swagger in the first place is intact and in full effect.

Til the Casket Drops is also defined by a maturation in mindset that moves beyond the girls, cash, cars mantra of some of the singles. The deep-album cuts offer poignant, insightful rhymes that reveal a duo who've had their fill of materialism and are seeking something more meaningful.

For Virginia Beach rap duo Clipse, what more fitting time to release their third album than when the weather starts to turn white? Brothers Malice and Pusha T have long made their name on critically-acclaimed, popularly-ignored hardcore rap that largely focused on one thing and one thing only: cocaine, and all the business ventures and death threats that go along with it. From their brutal lyrics, relentless flow, and minimalist Neptunes-provided beats, they've always seemed darker than their contemporaries, more real and, most importantly, more believable. But after yet another long layoff and another sub-standard mixtape to whet their fans' appetites, Clipse have found themselves in a weird place: successful, and with nothing to prove.

Perhaps then they can be forgiven for making their first so-so record, one that on the surface seems to have all the necessary ingredients for another celebrated release. The brothers Thornton have retained their sharp tongues and smooth but distinctive flows, rapping out lyrics like "I keep that dirty money / I'm talkin' fast cash / I'm talkin' razor shaving / I'm talkin' duffle bags" with the same equal amounts of nonchalance and subtle vigor that they use to spit lines like "hell, even my garage a ménage / like my hoes exotic, same as my cars" or "they think it's cute / while they're giving me dome" so viciously. They're still obsessed with coke, although here they focus more on the money and fame it's brought them than the actual travails of drug dealing. And the Neptunes are still on board, providing low-key beats with the focus on the brothers' storytelling.

The Clipse showed their undeniable talent on this album. I respect Malice for revealing what his real life is like and stating although he raps about certain things in his music his life is totally different from that. First artist I've heard admit that.

Mixtapes are a good way to keep your name circulating in between albums. The Clipse dropped two very good mixtapes since their last album "Hell Hath No Fury". The problem with mixtapes is nothing about it is original. Its nice to hear your favorite rapper rhyming over someone else's hit. But albums are where you make you money. Nobody else to blame but yourself. Their last album was critically acclaimed but that did not reflect in record sales. They haven't had a hit single since "Grindin". Now, the Thorton brothers are back to prove a point with "Til' The Casket Drops".

The Clipse are known for two things: "coke rap" and metaphors that would make Phife Dawg proud. The first thing you might notice is that The Neptunes are not responsible for the entire production on the album. That can be good and bad. Good because it shows the ability to step away from their comfort zone. Bad because it gets away from the sound they are known for. Veteran producers The Hitmen lend a hand on the lead off single "Freedom". "Kinda Like A Big Deal" is classic Clipse flow over a Neptunes beat featuring a weak 16 from Kanye West. "Popular Demand (Popeyes)" is what you would expect from a song featuring Cam'Ron. It makes no sense but the beat and hook is hot. "I'm Good" Ft. Pharrell is obviously a song for the club. But its catchy and grows on you. Other standouts include the reggae-themed "There Was A Murder", "Door Man" & the reflective songs "Footsteps" & "Life changes. This album is not without its flaws. "All Eyes On Me" ft. Keri Hilson is horrible. As well as "Counseling", "Champion" & "Showing Out" ft. Yo Gotti. What stands out is that all of the bad songs on this album are beats done by the Neptunes. (I always thought they were hit or miss). Overall this is a solid album.
