    The sample-based backing tracks, hard-hitting but plain, don't have much choice but to play second-best. [Jan 2002, p.74]
  2. The Wire

    What's lacking on Date Of Birth, though, is any sort of excitement. [#212, p.75]
  3. Date of Birth is packed with hard-driving, repetitive beats that are equal parts Wu-Tang Clan and Gang Starr, yet the music lacks either of those groups' charms.
  4. Urb
    50
    Much of the album fails to make sparks. [Nov/Dec 2001, p.142]

    Good album. Check out Freestyle's "Etched in Stone" and Q's "Vengeance is Mine" too.
