    Starts with elegant Congolese rumba then transforms into something angrier and more powerful... What lets it down, however, is an unfocused mid-section. [Jan 2012, p.101]

    It's an entertainingly varied set – thanks to the Congolese musicians rather than Baloji himself.

    Kinshasa Succursale is bursting with ideas, not all of which hit their mark. It's refreshing however to see an approach to recording and production which doesn't strive for polish and perfection.

    Baloji is interested in an involved fusion that is at once nostalgic and innovative, quickly establishing its own musical identity.
  5. Feb 17, 2012
    The [resulting album] is an engaging collision of styles.
  6. The most vibrant, organic and energy infused African hip-hop debut since K'naan's The Dusty Foot Philosopher.

    Beautifully nuanced collage of soulfully rocking flavours.
