    The Chiddy Bang are young and full of talent, this album is the proof. Ray Charles is certainly the best track on the album with soul and alternative entries that make it one of the best songs of 2012. From this we can say that Breakfast is the best way to start the day.

    Breakfast is ultimately a great way to start the day. Its catchy pop hooks and chilled rhymes make this a great listen for any listener. This young duo started 2012 with such a happy, skilled, and fun album. The production side is on its top game making some really great different tracks like Ray Charles a soul alternative sounding track, then to Mind your Manners with a pop-hip hopBreakfast is ultimately a great way to start the day. Its catchy pop hooks and chilled rhymes make this a great listen for any listener. This young duo started 2012 with such a happy, skilled, and fun album. The production side is on its top game making some really great different tracks like Ray Charles a soul alternative sounding track, then to Mind your Manners with a pop-hip hop brilliance, and to finish it off with 4th Quarter a harder hip hop song. The rapping side is riveting, smart and gripping you just want to hear more quick rhymes from Chidera the record breaker rapper. Breakfast is a very impressive debut from these 2 and is not to be missed. Expand

    The tracks in this album have a "happy" feeling to them. Overall, this album has a good vibe to it. It isn't dark or depressing. I always listen to this album while driving to school.

    I don't know why most people don't like his songs, because I find them to be great. If you don't like hard rap but you like rap, he is great for you, their music is quality.

    I personally like the later songs more than the album's earlier songs. "Happening" and "Talking to Myself" are both great songs that were greatly overlooked in my opinion.

    Overall Breakfast effectively blends alternative and hip-hop elements into an eclectic montage of fresh lyricism and bursting musical backdrops.

    Fizzes with poppy yet streetwise energy. [April 2012, p.94]

    Where Asher Roth left house-party hip hop (or just got a little high and wandered off) Chiddy Bang pick it up but bring a whole new focus, a pop-sensibility and a very nuanced delivery.
