    I'd rather listen to Aesop Rock. This album is good front start to finish, but it only has one stand out track, and that is not enough for me.

    Its no Fantastic Damage. A lot of the edge has dulled. The production is fun to listen to in a masterbratory, way to fret over, kind of way. I dunno. Its El-P and all but I was kinda disappointed.

    There was a lot going on, but it's not until now... that El-P's music could actually be called full. So full that even silence weighs a ton. [Mar 2007, p.95]
  3. Already the best hip-hop release of 2007, and it ain't even close. [Mar 2007, p.68]
