  1. The music won't knock you on your ass, but the overall delivery is a real treat, if you go in for this sort of thing.
  2. Caught somewhere between the big yucks and the thoughtful overview are moments of genuine strangeness that are both captivating and unsettling. [#255, p.59]
  3. As opposed to the didactic nature of the booklet, the audio portion of No Business tends more toward arch satire of the ongoing debate over fair use in digital media, creating a précis of its contradictions and ideological schisms rather than advancing a particular thesis.
  4. No Business is one of the least surprising albums Negativland has yet done, but one entity's repetition is another's source of continuing inspiration, and the end results are familiarly entertaining.
  5. As "art", the album is fine. It's quirky, it's humorous, it makes its point.
  6. Like most of Negativland's oeuvre, No Business makes valid points via sometimes-annoying sounds.
