  1. 100
    A twisted funk masterpiece that simultaneously evokes bad pornography and an outer-space barrio. Yeah, Change Is Coming is that good. [#52, p.97]
  2. Showing his trademark deftness at every turn, Mark spins a remarkably cohesive experience out of a large and unique melange of player,s instruments and genres. [#32, p.55]
  3. A sweetass blaxploitation-film score in waiting. [Dec 2001, p.87]
  4. 70
    You get the impression that the sound is simply a synthesis of all the things he has listened to and enjoyed. [Nov 2001, p.76]
  5. A perfect party. A perfect soundtrack to your perfect party. You'll sleep like a baby, and inevitably wake to realize that Change Is Coming doesn't play so well by the light of day.
  6. When the formula works, the results are quite impressive, but at other times the songs simply fall flat, victims of their own overly simplistic and repetitive arrangements
  7. The downside is that, much like his earliest material, Change Is Coming has a light feel that's undeniably enjoyable but also a bit tossed-off.
