  1. The album moves the way you always hope jungle will, like a cross between a tiger and a snake, yet it's also a kind of mix record, with five showcases for Reprazent's serviceable MC Dynamite, who's as useful as the inevitable Method Man in the crucial matter of providing rap sounds. Size has his own Chaka, too. Her name is Onallee, and she takes the record out.

    Roni Size and Reprazent come back so fast and furious on In the Mode that their record sounds less like a jungle reinvention than a call to arms. [Nov. 2000, p.207]
  3. His latest returns a sense of urgency to a musical revolution-turned-boutique genre. The vibe's faster and gnarlier... [10/27/2000, p.120]
  4. 80
    Slimmer, leaner, more disciplined than its predecessor.
  5. Shot through with uncut techno and hip-hop, the grooves on this seventeen-track CD are hard, propulsive and irresistible.
  6. 60
    Roni Size has abandoned his grooves for a tougher hip-hop-oriented approach. The results are hit and miss... [Nov. 2000, p.122]
  7. Like its predecessor, In The Mode is a sprawling tour-de-force, and its 80 minutes contain much that is breathtaking alongside the pleasant if perfunctory. [Nov 2000, p. 112]
