    A breakthrough for Slum Village. [Jul 2004, p.138]
  2. A surprisingly solid disc characterized by the top-notch production that has always been the group's saving grace.
  3. A parade of digital R&B jams that skillfully navigate the divide between cutting-edge headphone productions and bumping club tracks.

    T3's iconistic delivery and Elzhi's endearing and logistically strong raps hold it down, and collaborations shine brilliantly. [Jul/Aug 2004, p.126]
  5. If only rappers T3 and Elzhi had the personality to match the enticing soundscapes. [16 Jul 2004, p.76]
  6. Long on verbosity but short on personality. [19 Aug 2004, p.123]

    I rate it a 7 b/c its average. Slum is better than this. Ergo the problem. Slum is not featrured on the album. T-3 and Elzhi are great I rate it a 7 b/c its average. Slum is better than this. Ergo the problem. Slum is not featrured on the album. T-3 and Elzhi are great MC's but the entire album is sorely missing Baatin and JayDee(production and lyrics). Fantastic Vol 2... Detroit Deli is NOT!!! Vol was a CLASSIC...Hopefully the will ALL reassemble and make another CLASSIC!!!! Expand
