    Strap on your seatbelt, 'cause you never been on a ride like this befo.' [Jan/Feb 2006, p.78]
  2. Busdriver gives his best performance thus far.
  3. His choruses are instantly memorable and his word-soup lyricism easily places him in the upper echelon of intelligent emcees, somewhere between MF Doom and Dose One.
  4. Roadkill Overcoat is a thorny album, one that doesn't give itself over easy, and definitely not on first listen.
  5. Maybe some thought Busdriver sounded self-satisfied before, but he used to sound one step ahead of the listener instead of running to catch up.
  6. RoadKillOvercoat will certainly win him some fans who have previously avoided hip-hop, but for those same reasons, it might also cost him some, too.

    RoadKillOvercoat fattens his usual oblique rhymes into even more demanding, bombastic forms. [Apr 2007, p.93]
