  • Summary: The San Francisco Bay Area native releases his third album, his first on Epitaph Records.

  1. Positive: 8 out of 17

  1. The album truly is everywhere at once, and for that it at least deserves a taste.
  2. Like Big Boi and Andre 3000, Lyrics Born is on a mission to expand the boundaries of the genre. He doesn't always succeed, and the result is an album that is a little inconsistent, but it is damn good more often than not.
  3. For his second solo studio record, the Quannum Projects godfather veers left from his sample-centric background and into something that should be highly pleasing to anyone who enjoyed hip-hop in 1988.

    While the record does nothing to offend listeners, it's excessively broad and does little to dramatically impress. [Winter 2008, p.94]
  5. 60
    Everywhere At Once, LB's Anti-debut, is also a practice in nostalgia--but it's decidedly more me-centric in execution. [Mar/Apr 2008, p.109]
  6. 60
    The result is less an uncommonly danceable indie-rap disc than it is an uncommonly thoughtful groove album. [May 2008, p.100]
  7. Truly hyph-lite, LP four, Everywhere at Once, drops more fizzle than pop over a rote canvas of 1980s B-boy stance and 'Hott 2 Deff' breaks.
