  • Summary: This Minnesota hip-hop outfit finds MCs Felix and Muad'Dib backed by a live three-piece band instead of the industry-standard assortment of DJs and producers.

  1. It's powerful, clever, and you can dance to it.
  2. A well-rounded record that shows their maturation from an underground rap collective to a matured group who have found their voice in a crowded and commercial genre.
  3. The best thing about listening to the Heiruspecs is that they sound like a rap group on the beginning of a long journey, as opposed to one who finally "made it" and feel content now that they're signed and distributed nationally.

    These B-boys are as forward-thinking as they get. [Oct 2004, p.122]
  5. At no point are they longwinded, and they keep the variations on their sound rolling throughout the closing track.
  6. 60
    [Heiruspecs] prove that they are definitely more than just Atmosphere's occasional back-up band. [Oct 2004, p.103]
