    Black Star was the shit closing the main stage in 2005 after Nails. Surprise guest apearance from Common during the set. Reflection Eternal (Train of Thought) is one of my top 10 hip hop albums for sure, maybe even top 5. I hated seeing Kweli do Coke Commercials, but I understand people don't really buy cds anymore and we all need to make a living. Those beats on Train of Thought are amazing and Kweli really gets inside of them well. Talib's follow up solo record sucked dick. Ironicaly it was called Quality. Black Star/Mos Def/Kweli fan here for sure. I miss the days when hip hop was still evolving. Everyone has platoed or declined except for Aesop who is lightyears ahead of the game and maybe a couple other MCs.

    Quality is a good album. There are some meh tunes, but you can't deny the genius of some of the other tracks (like shock body, for ex).
