3 Stars (out of 5) - "...Even as garden-variety thug, 2Pac shows more skill than most. He deserves to have all eyes--and ears--on him."
Spin - 5/96, p.106
7 (out of 10) - "...As long as you don't expect philanthropy from him, you'll find honesty and some pleasurably twisted scenarios..."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/27/96-1/3/97, p.146
Ranked #3 on Entertainment Weekly's list of the 'Top 10 Albums And Singles Of 1996.'
Entertainment Weekly - 3/8/96, p.64
"...On ALL EYEZ ON ME, 2Pac is clearly thrilled to host his own bustin'-out party. But even on this booty-shaking album, he's watching his back throughout the entire bash."
Q - 12/99, p.90
Included in Q Magazine's "90 Best Albums Of The 1990s."
Q - 7/01, p.130
4 stars out of 5 - "...One of the few occasions where 2Pac's music matches his kinetic personality....he really was the peerless embodiment of gangsta rap, a strutting provocateur staking out turf, calling out enemies and consoling peers..."
Musician - 6/96, p.90
"...gangsta rappers pretty much share the values of their Republican detractors: the emphasis on making money, the righteousness of bearing arms, the wonderfulness of consumption, respect for hierarchy and loyalty to one's own as overriding principles..."
Rap Pages - 5/96, p.30
7 (out of 10) - "...Backed by 'everything we push goes platinum' Death Row Records and a new crew of comrades...the lyrical Jesse James is back to expound on his lengthy dogmas within the infrastructure of his music....[T]his album conveys sudden gleams of brilliance and thick and chunky hits, radio-friendly or not..."
NME (Magazine) - 3/2/96, p.47
9 (out of 10) - "...ALL EYEZ is his angry, end-of-tether, couldn't-give-a-shit meditation....an immense spewing of indignation and provocation, set to a brilliantly varied range of G-funk grooves....Tupac blasts out his non-PC opinions...with a competition-eliminating relentlessness..."
Pitchfork (Website) - "Pac's writing is inherently and inescapably political, and his feelings about prison, about race, and about America permeate nearly every verse."

The first double-CD of original material by a rap artist, ALL EYEZ ON ME marks 2Pac's return from incarceration to the recording grind. And though Tupac Shakur may have spent the better part of 1995 locked up and battling the system, the album makes it obvious that, rather than degenerating his artistic abilities, the struggles have only elevated his skills. Now, with the backing of West Coast hip-hop's first family, Death Row Records, 2Pac gathers together many of the rap ruling class to celebrate his comeback and give the finger to those who've scrutinized his music and aggravated his existence.
While California has always been his base of operations (he began his career as a member of Oakland's Digital Underground), 2Pac is one of the few '90s rappers to earn props on both coasts. ALL EYEZ ON ME reciprocates the respect by toasting the west ("California Love," a duet with Dr. Dre), the east ("Got My Mind Made Up" features NYC strong-men, Redman and Method Man), and the old-school funkateers (George Clinton shows up on "Can't C Me"). The consistently fierce production by a diverse army of beat-fiends keeps the album pumping, seemingly diverting the mainstream consumers' attention away from the rapper's volatile stance. But 2Pac does not shy away from speaking his mind; he's simply learning which confrontations are truly worth it ("Only God Can Judge Me"). Because peace is that much harder to find when so many eyez are on ya.
