  1. Balancing a DIY mentality with a good ear for catch hooks, the Cool Kids have the ability to please both sides of the fence--which is exactly what the hip-hop world needs. [Aug 2008, p.174]
  2. Prejudices be damned, this is the best hip-hop record this year, and if that doesn’t satiate your hype-riddled appetite, then you would be well-served to shut off your computer, removing yourself from the power of the web, and throw this in your car stereo.
  3. Chicago duo ride to the rescue of hip-hop--on pimped up BMXs.
  4. The Cool Kids remember when hip-hop was a party. [Summer 2008]
  5. The Bake Sale is the first commercially available product from a group that's built its rep via MySpace and live shows, and most of these tracks have been floating around the internet for a long minute. But it makes for a great little introduction to two guys who know exactly what they're doing and who do it well.
  6. The witty anti-gangster taunts of A Little Bit Cooler and pretty much everything else on the album, makes for a fun, but still quality, Hip-Hop record.
  7. If nothing here exactly bursts with the shock of the new, then there's still something impressive about the way he turns minimal ingredients into undeniable party music.
