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. If you're a lover of Hip Hop that enlightens, educates and motivates while leaving the head noddin' to those beats, rhymes and rhythms, then check out "Reflection Eternal". It'll cause you to reflect on life, love and yourself!
