    An early study of California hip-hop, Überzone mixes twisted, bubbling Roland bass, big beats, and vocoder effects to make futuristic electro-anthems that manage to pop and lock like robots, but recall the organic '80s breaker heyday and never sound sterile and stiff.
  2. Überzone's constant changeups in style and tempo breathe fresh life into a stale genre.
  3. 70
    This well-engineered album's ideas have been gestating a little too long. You might just say it's the best album of 1998. [Sep 2001, p.152]
  4. It's the varying textures on Faith that prove Uberzone to be a true renegade of funk.
  5. 70
    It is good to see such experimentation by an artist in a field usually associated with being so genre-specific. [July 2001, p.82]
  6. The album awkwardly divides in two: the first half showcases Wiles' forward-looking tunes; the second takes a brief historical look at his dated earlier work.
  7. Lacking the hyperbole of, say, Chemical Brothers or the musicality of more band-like fare like Crystal Method, he finds a middle ground of giving-and-taking frequencies between his twos and fours, as if mixing it live. [Sep 2001, p.104]
