If a certain artist/producer pairing generates a hit, then why not revisit the same well? Mystikal does just that by reteaming with the Neptunes ("Shake Ya Ass") and the Medicine Men on this follow-up to Let's Get Ready. Also on board are fellow production players Rockwilder and Scott Storch. The Neptunes-produced lead single, the "Shake Ya Ass"-veined "Bouncin' Back (Bumpin' Me Against the Wall)," prominently showcases Mystikal's signature rasp and is already climbing the R&B chart. But this album—heavy on sexual prowess and sporting guest stints by Butch Cassidy, Juvenile, and Redman and Method Man—doesn't build on the multifaceted promise evoked by Let's Get Ready. In fact, two new tunes, "Smoke One" and "Big Truck Driver," carry similar titles to two tracks on the previous album ("Smoked Out," "Big Truck Boys"). And it's not a strong creative sign when another track, "The Return," contains a sample of "Shake Ya Ass."—GM
