    [This album] finds a glorious similitude between the two disciplines. [Jul 2010, p.92]

    Reggae-rap soundclash fails to catch fire. [July 2010, p. 136]
  3. The result is an exceptionally melodic reggae album that's intensified by rapping devoid of dancehall patois and a hard edge unknown to roots revivalism. The result is also an exceptionally political hip-hop album that's most convincing when it doesn't multiply Afrocentric distortion by Rastafarian reasoning.
