  1. It's funnier and more pointed than Handsome Boy Modeling School.

    The Majesticons highlight commercial hip-hop's yawning credibility gap by amping up the bourgeois posturing to the point of absurdity. [Jun 2003, p.105]

    Laced with bitter irony so thick it drips out of your speakers.

    While conscious rap often comes off as dour, this is a thoroughly enjoyable record, dignified and jiggy all at once. [Mar 2003, p.94]
  5. Magnet

    Inhabit[s] some weird middle ground between The Teaches of Peaches and Prince's 1999. [#58, p.98]
  6. An album that so faithfully conveys the obsessions, sound, and tone of jiggy hip-hop that, out of context, it would be easy to mistake it for the music it parodies.
  7. A few tracks delve a little too far into ditzy R&B territory and thus come off sounding a little too similar to the songs they mimic.
