    first listen to this artist, like it a lot. very dark and foreboding hip-hop.

    Excellent CD. Its been a long time i haven't seen such a good cd. its like a mix of Daft Punk, Chemical Brothers, and Mark Farina.

    You're just scared that he's right. 50 Cent couldn't buy these beats, not that he could understand them anyway.

    The best surprise of the year so far. Great beats with a political message. My favourite hip-hop "Supa Star". Check it out!

    Bangin' cd! Plus Ms. John Soda is featured on more than 1 track. You can't touch that. The beats sink in deep.

    Ranges from good to very good. The vinyl is worth seeking out, great sound for low price

    Today, yet another album filled with introverted hip-hop instrumentals--even one with occasional moments of beauty radiating from the murk--is doomed by comparison to the more innovative work the label has been offering lately. [Mar 2006, p.138]

    A production gem. [#19, p.91]
  3. Soft Money continues to blur the line between downtempo electronica and underground hip-hop in its own distinct, highly gratifying way.
