Rebirth [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
The title makes it plain: coming quickly after 2003's muddled, unfocused Self Titled, Rebirth is AWOL One's hitting of the reset button.

Slanguage is still AWOL One's career high point, but Rebirth is an impressive bounce back.
