“Train of Thought is the debut album of American hip hop duo Reflection Eternal, released in 2000 on Rawkus Records. Collaborating as a duo, rapper Talib Kweli and DJ and hip hop producer Hi-Tek recorded the album during 1999 to 2000, following their individual musical work that gained notice in New York's underground scene during the late 1990s. Kweli had previously worked with rapper Mos Def as the duo Black Star, and Hi-Tek had served as producer on the duo's debut album.

Produced primarily by Hi-Tek, the album is characterized by dynamic, high-tempo tracks and a Soulquarians-type neo soul sound. It showcases Kweli's rapping and features themes of revolutionary mentality, love, the state of hip hop, and modern African-American culture. Upon its release, Train of Thought achieved moderate sales success and received critical acclaim from music critics. Train of Thought is now considered a classic album, and one of Kweli's best works.” - Wiki

“Representing New York, Talib brings the same spiritual essence he displayed on the BlackStarr album. To say Talib is a wordsmith is an understatement, as he bends and blends rhymes better than anybody in the game. The lead single Move Something is as commercial as this album gets as horns blare over top of a thumping bass line combined with Kweli's smooth but aggressive flow.

The beats on Train of Thought are all done by Hitek. To simply put it, they are all banging. Dj Hitek brings it back to the days where an old sample and a deep bass line were all it took to make a hit. To quote one line from Kweli would not do him any justice as the whole album should be a quote.” - HipHopDX
