  1. Ultimately, No! is one of the group's most creative albums in years, and undoubtedly one of 2002's best children's releases, because it says yes to fun and individuality.
  2. This is pure unadulterated fun, masterfully executed.
  3. The disc is enhanced with gleefully absurd, marginally interactive cartoons, and packed with that Eisenhower-era zip-twinkle.
  4. Blender
    It may not hold the attention of anyone who's been out of diapers more than five years. [#8, p.124]
  5. 17 tracks of "edutainment" that are as enjoyable for adults as they are for kids.
  6. Kids, parents and nerdy long-time fans alike can take something out of this.
  7. 80
    It's great for kids and parents, because TMBG, like former Del Fuego Dan Zanes, are among the only children's musicians who recognize that real rock and roll has always been goofy and childlike.
  8. The whole album is as musically stirring and creative as anything TMBG have ever done, and that’s saying a lot.

    Good album, but it does get a little repetitive. Some of them are catchy, however most are just weird (not the good "Flood" and "Dial a Song" weird).
