  • Summary: A member of fellow anticon collective artist cLOUDDEAD, Odd Nosdam returns with his second solo LP, a two-part disc that combines instrumental tracks and beats with a found-sound collage approach.

    The record exudes a childlike exuberance in the early going, before descending into a Shadow-esque gloom. [Jul 2003, p.93]
  2. For the first time, it sounds like he sat down in a good studio and carefully assembled a record. That's good, in that Odd Nosdam's production rode out the lo-fi thing for exactly long enough before moving on; but it's also a disappointment, because the new work isn't far off from where he was before-- it recycles a lot of his ideas with none of his usual edginess.
  3. Those who find Anticon's selfconsciousness and self-flagellation a bit hard to stomach may be able to digest Odd Nosdam's maddening instrumental collages. [#230, p.71]
  4. Alternately maddening and enlightening. [Jun 2003, p.110]
  5. By the end of No Wig, it’s hard not to feel like it suffers from the level of simplicity inherent in much of Nosdam's production.
  6. The album is potentially valuable as a source for samples, but it fails as a listening experience.
