  1. 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.
  2. It's powerful, clever, and you can dance to it.
  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]

    Solid album. Only complaint is that some songs sound extremely similar to one another. Nevertheless, one of the best in a while

    A solid album from a hip-hop band that is representing the undie game in MN proper. This album is not only filled with solid raps, lyrically A solid album from a hip-hop band that is representing the undie game in MN proper. This album is not only filled with solid raps, lyrically and stylistically, but is also a statement to the barriers that can be broken in hip-hop with a simple mix of keys, a bass and a trap set. The highlights are 5VES, A Tiger Dancing, and Heartsprings, which is the dopest love rap since the Pharcyde's Passing Me By. Shame on The Roots, this is the album they should have put out this year.
