  1. Atlantis is a shining example of pop music in the 21st century should be.
  2. An inspired, genre-breaking album from beginning to end. [#16, p.92]
  3. The music on this album glows and shines, and while it certainly isn’t consumed by grime and dirt, it has a degree of edge to it.
  4. He stuffs "Atlantis" to the core with ambition, wicked grooves and more hooks than you might expect. [24 Feb 2007]
  5. This ambitious use of resources and influences could very easily end up creating an album that sounded severely disjointed, even incoherent, but k-os is able to make something that, despite the diversity between tracks, works very much as a whole.
  6. It’s still too lightweight to win any hip-hop race, but at least you’ll want to add K-OS’s name to your mental checklist as you peruse those small-rock-club listings.
  7. 40
    While his lyricism is as sharp and searching as ever, inventive musical moments are scarce. [Feb 2007, p.125]
