  1. Exquisite Corpse is a near perfect blend of the densely packed, sample heavy, nearly symphonic electronica and off-kilter hip-hop that the last three albums have featured.
  2. 70
    It drifts like trade winds, which is good for followers and merely intriguing to the casual listener. [May 2005, p.84]
  3. Exquisite Corpse does little to expand upon Daedelus’ aesthetic; it does, however, explore the hip-hop direction that he’s been moving towards in his collaborative work more thoroughly than any of his previous efforts.
  4. 70
    Reveals another eclectic, kaleidoscopic world. [May 2005, p.106]
  5. Exquisite Corpse's saving grace is that there is enough variety to its ensemble of guest performers to keep the listener somewhat interested.
  6. Where Corpse works, it's merely a repeat of past successes. The few tentative steps into unfamiliar territory are marked failures.
  7. 40
    Too often his cluttered samples and constant fidgeting shatter [the] fragile spells. [Apr 2005, p.98]
