    Profound? Hardly. Fun? Indubitably. [Jan 2013, p.93]

    If the album never quite reaches the tune-packed heights of 808s, the overall listen is utterly melting.

    Bossalinis & Fooliyones is a taut, humble and profoundly aware medley of late afternoon joy--the best time to listen to it.

    Many of the tracks on Bossalinis & Fooliyones focus on typical hip-hop fodder, like struggles with women, weed, money, and success, but--when successful--avoid feeling contrived due to their heavy sense of apathy.

    On their proper full-length debut, a sound in danger of stagnation has been brightened and reconfigured in appealing ways.

    The beats are straighter and more polished, and a degree of shine has replaced bedroom-engineered grit. [Dec 2012, p.75]

    Bossalinis & Fooliyones, while not exactly what you'd call a mainstream rap album, is consistently accessible, and in thrall to a tangle of overground production styles.

    Like a lot of young artists who've been flash-fried by the Internet, these guys also aren't so much great as they are getting better, using public interest to spur themselves on. Bossalinis is cleaner and more varied than their mixtapes, but this album is also long.

    Bossalinis & Fooliyones is, at worst, an amiable enough diversion, at best it's very entertaining.

    When they do keep it 'cloud'--with the dissolving beauty of 'Cloud Body' and the fairytale-like 'Love Is Life'--the results are remarkable. But elsewhere, romance and originality suffer.

    Bossalinis & Fooliyones is a perfectly plain little rap album, one that's 70 minutes long for no real good reason and comes and goes with little remarkable occurring either good or bad.
