    Strong album from begining to end. Reaggae tracks stand strong. I don't want to comment more. It's Bad Brains, powerfull hardcore pionners, no match. You know em ?!

    Very good. I particularly like the low-fi production quality. It's a really nice contrast to today's millisecond-timed, glossy, overproduced digital products.

    It's surprisingly decent. [Jul 2007, p.174]
  2. It lacks the messiness that made them so beautiful in the first place, but be glad they're still punching.
  3. It doesn't stray too far from their original template but it is focused and involving.
