    This album stands on its own, with... an emphasis on beats rather than technical tricks. [#27, p.149]
  2. Solidly entertaining. [Aug 2004, p.122]
  3. Revolutions is pretty breathtaking.
  4. These songs are accented by the X-ecutioners' deft scratching and energetic beats, resulting in a regularly exciting and inventive album.
  5. The X-ecutioners force the ire on their third album, Revolutions, with mixed results.
  6. 70
    In a case of not fixing what isn't broken, they return with a veritable cornucopia of crossover-ready collaborators eager to see if lightning can indeed strike twice. [Jul/Aug 2004, p.127]
  7. The just fair pop tracks keep it from being classic, but this is the best the talented team has sounded on record yet.
  8. I find myself pleasantly surprised by just how catchy and accessible the album is.
  9. Amidst all this, the trio's scratching feels peripheral, and when it does take centre stage, is underwhelming. [Jul 2004, p.127]
  10. Too many forgettable concoctions make this just another so-so DJ mix. [10 Jun 2004, p.91]
  11. Revolutions is an extremely boring affair, never building any momentum from the start to finish.
  12. All too often finds X-Ecutioners playing second fiddle to an outsized roster of uninspired guests.
