Overview

"I think I've grown spiritually, mentally and artistically, and you can hear that on Eve-olution," Eve told a women's magazine prior to her third disc's release. And with production by Swizz Beatz, Dr. Dre, and Irv Gotti, and star-studded guest appearances by Snoop and Nate Dogg, Truth Hurts, and Jadakiss and Styles from The L.O.X., this Ruff Ryders first lady ups the ante for her female rap competition. The catchy first single, "Gangsta Lovin'," features R&B star Alicia Keys.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
Having proved herself with 2001's rough and tough Scorpion, Eve changed direction slightly for Eve-Olution. The focus here is less hip-hop and more contemporary R&B, with fewer rappers invited as guests -- only appear on only two tracks, "Hey Y'All" features Snoop Dogg and Nate Dogg and the Scorpion sequel "Double R What" features Jadakiss and Styles. After the intro, Eve focuses squarely on neo-soul. The productions keep the groove going coutresy of the beatheads behind the boards Irv Gotti, Dr. Dre, Swizz Beatz, and Poke & Tone. ("Irresistible Chick" features a smooth Irv Gotti production that's moving almost as fast as Eve's fluid raps. There are a few tough-love tracks along the lines of Scorpion's "You Had Me, You Lost Me" and "You Ain't Gettin' None," and a nod to her Ruff Ryders past with "Ryde Away."
The Source - Brett Johnson
On her latest effort, Eve-olution, female solidarity and womanly claims for independence are a venomous, complimentary tandem. No longer weighed down by a glut of guest appearances, the disc shoves Eve's rhymes to the fore with just a few friendly voices added for emphasis. 1/2
Billboard - Rashaun Hall
For her third set, Eve-olution, the Philadelphia native returns with a lyrical bravado that surpasses many of her female and male counterparts.

I love the tracks on this record. The lyrics are unbeatable. I just wish I knew what it sounded like because this guy stabbed me in my ears with a pair of scissors and I can't hear anything now.

Hot not only describes Eve but it also describes her latest cd Eve-olution. This is her best work to date. You can listen to this cd from start to finish with blazing beats and super producers like Dre working on her album with guest apperarences by Snoop, Jadakis, Truth Hurts, Alicia keys just to name a few this is one of the best albums of the year and a must for any real cd collectors.

My Philly GURL has done it again! You can hear the maturity in her voice and in her words. I would definitly reccomend this to anyone, she is a women that many could never compare too! Th beats are hot, the words are real, and the cameo's are true
