Before I get into this review, Beanie Sigel said this to Mtv and I quote "I was probably only like 80 percent of really getting into my zone on this project, but at 50 percent, my 50 percent is better than people's 100 percent". Beans basically had to rush the album.

Now on the review,

1. Intro (feat. Oliver Laing)
The album starts off with a solo track from Oliver Laing singing about Sigels life. Beans should of most definitely rapped on the intro, this is a R&B song that should not start off a Hip Hop album. I wasn't feeling this track

2. This Time (feat. Oliver Laing)
Beans speaks on some some things people said about him as he spits "Some say I still got it/ some say I dont/ but I say what I got to prove to you chumps",and he also talks about his struggles "I went from caviar dreams to champagne sippin'/Back to Four Lokos, four wings fried crispy". This song should of set the album off, dope song and a good hook from Oliver Laing.

3. That's All I Know (feat. Akon)
This song is basically talking about the streets is all he knows, just talking about what goes down in the hood. Akon on the hook, doing his thing as usual.song is ok.

4. Expensive Taste (feat. Corey Latif Williams)
The song title explains the songs perfect, Beans likes the more luxury things in life. Hes enjoying life, having fun this time around, Latif did a nice job on the hook. The beat is laid back, I can see this being a single. At the end of the song Beans said hes two stepping in the booth, which is kinda funny cause I can picture him doing that Lol.

5. Kush Dreaming
Sig is rapping in some type of weird way in the first two verses.

Following the dope Broad Street Empire mixtape that was released earlier this year, Beans is back with his sixth studio album. Sadly, this album doesn't live up to the standards Sigel has set on his previous albums and it sure as hell isn't a proper follow up to 2009's The Broad Street Bully. There's a couple of dope songs scattered around on here, but they're surrounded by a bunch of mediocre ones.

I honestly feel like this album was doomed from the start. Beanie knew he was going to get locked up so he wanted to push an album out to hold his fans over. While it was a nice thought, I would have been happier if he left us with the Broad Street Empire mixtape. That mixtape wasn't perfect, but it was definitely more consistent than the content on here.

The album starts off with an intro that is supposed to be dark, but it just comes off as boring. After that the album's title song comes on and it sounds like this album has a chance at being pretty good, but once you reach track four, "Expensive Taste," it starts spiraling out of control. Majority of these tracks lack any real energy or substance. There's a few songs like track six, "Bang Bang Youth," that are actually discussing something important, but most of these songs hold no real value.

Then on track nine, "The Reunion," we have a State Property track where someone made the stupid decision to censor it. Why? None of the other songs on here are censored, so why do it on the song that had the potential to be the best on the album? It just makes no sense to me.

Standout Songs: "This Time," "Bang Bang Youth," & "No Hook"

Overall Score: 4/10 - I wanted to like this album, and Sigel had the right idea, but the end result is a very mediocre record. Hopefully Beans can do his time, get released, and create another dope album. This just didn't do it for me.

The man is officially back now. no more playing around. if i could tell this man that state prop was needed, here it is. never mind the dash guy who gave up, never mind the west guy that is still relavent but steals beats, never mind the z guy who promoted a dynasty but ripped it apart in our face and said take it or leave it. if you keep it up i will support you in tjhese hard times and im pretty sure nine hundred thousand other guys will too.

The whole gangsta rap thing is a bit played out but this album is enjoyable. It's nothing that I'd have in heavy rotation.

This Time is a bit of a mess, sounding like an uninspired group of tracks concluded with an abrupt ending. Realistically, I did not expect much from this album so nothing is a surprise. The production is uninspired and rather lame sounding. There is a variety of unknown producers (or at least I do not recognize them), delivering an unpolished sound with weak samples, a lack of solid melodies, and raw-sounding drums. Moving on to the lyrics, there is not much of an improvement here either. The quality of lyrics and flow has changed over the years and Sigel remains in the past. He delivers a decent performance with an average flow and a lack of complexity, keeping a street appeal. This one definitely falls below the mark.
