    Overall this is never less than an engaging listen. [Dec 2012, p.112]

    Vadim manages to mix hip-hop, dancehall, dubstep, soul, and electronic dance music into a concoction that works.

    There's also plenty of dubstep and neo-soul (note the very fine vocal cameo from Greg Blackman on "I'm Feeling U"), and unfortunately, there are also some de rigueur sketches and waste-of-time spoken word interludes, but not too many of them.

    The mixed bag nature of Don't Be Scared that is its downfall: a lack of consistency leads to the album sounding more like a DJ set than a cohesive record.
