    A psychedelic journey quite unlike any other that could very well result in the creation of a completely new category of music simply known as Utopia Rap because musically it doesn't get much better than this.
  2. This brilliant, OutKast-like fusion of synthetic electro beats and surreal rhymes form a skewd tribute to the US state of Georgia. [Aug 2009, p.107]
  3. One of those albums where a couple of creative renegades flip out over every stylistic possibility available to them, overextend their ambition, and still come away from it making its missteps sound exciting.
  4. What’s so frustrating about this effort is its potential to be great, a possibility visible even through its painfully apparent flaws.

    Their debut shares Gnarls' yen for psychedelic weirdness and uncharacteristic (for hip-hop) emotional vulnerability, but with beats that are swampy, murky, and--when thumping below moaning guitars and spacey organ melodies--wholly disorienting.
  6. 60
    When he's not making party music, he stretches out and delivers deep fluid grooves. It's the naggingly simplistic melodies and dumb call-and-response choruses of tracks like 'U Want Some?' that spoil the fun. [Aug 2009, p.92]
