  1. Ultimately, I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead displays a type of artistic growth almost alien to the genre.
  2. I'll Sleep When You're Dead is too smart, too relevant, and too dangerous.
  3. I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead is a triumph that will, like its predecessor, take years to unpeel.
  4. It seems - for the first time, perhaps - he's made one out of love for the artform alone rather than with the added motive of letting off a little barely-suppressed rage or feeling he has scores to settle, either with the industry or himself.
  5. One of the most powerful hip-hop albums of 2007.
  6. The Impressionistic sound painting El-P has long threatened - and finally delivered.
  7. He flirts with melody here... and relaxes his delivery, allowing us to take a breath before heading back into the chaos. [23 Mar 2007, p.59]
