    It's a decent but underwhelming album, and one that inspires apathy more than adoration or disgust.

    when he gets it right, he's one of the best.... Let's be honest though, the hit rate isn't great.

    While it may not hit the heights of Madvillainy (to be fair, what could?), there are some strong verses and some equally strong production.

    Rap paradise is paved with bad intentions and Key to the Kuffs disappoints by shying away from greatness where we've come to expect nothing less.

    He's given us a lot to unpick, even if the record isn't as cohesive as it ought to be.

    Another slapdash cash-in from masked rap's last bastion. [Sep 2012, p.60]
