  1. There isn't a weak track on "Father Divine," and though some of Ladd's lyrical styling can be uninspired... the album is packed with solid material.
  2. It's a record played in the red, and it's not afraid to have a good time there.
  3. An invigorating mix of spacey dub, seventies funk, eighties big-beat electro, old school hip-hop and even early Prince, Father Divine is Ladd's most lyrically accessible and sonically enjoyable album to date.
  4. Father Divine ranks among the best of Ladd’s efforts, and is easily one of his most adventurous.
  5. Father Divine is that rare album that's conscious of its diversity without being pretentious about it
  6. Overall Ladd has made a divine album indeed.
  7. Uncut
    Although Father Divine ultimately feels more like a sketchbook than a coherent work, Ladd's doodles contain more fertile ideas than most artists' finished albums. [Mar 2006, p.91]
