    A lot of cool smooth sampling from the 60's 70's that transform good songs into a great classic album. I give 10 for less than 1 out of 100 records that I own. Nothing else from Nakamura or Patton come close to this IMO.

    The only other "sampling" album that I give at 10 is The Avalanches "Since I left You"

  1. While Nakamura is quite possibly one of the most accomplished beat processors in the realm of art hip-hop/electronica, his strict-composer approach on this project is occasionally inaccessible and at times unlistenable.

    Lovage's schtick wears pretty thin by album's end--but if it works like it's supposed to, you won't need to play it that long. [Feb 2002, p.108]
  3. Superficially, Lovage is a continuation of the Handsome Boy Modeling School aesthetic that collides HipHop, rock and electronica into an ironic hipster epic. [#213, p. 59]
