    More than another coaster on the coffee-table circuit. [Mar 2005, p.108]
  2. Urb

    Builds upon the familiar grab bag with the addition of a trippier, more psychedelic vibe and high-profile, pop-minded guest vocalists. [Mar 2005, p.114]
  3. Mojo
    60
    It's a few tracks too long, but it's easy to get lost in its smoked-out haze. [Apr 2005, p.89]
  4. Paste Magazine
    60
    Like much of Thievery Corporation's work, it's enveloping if not terribly galvanizing. [#16, p.138]
  5. Entertainment Weekly
    50
    Hampered by lazy beats and an overabundance of world-music window dressing. [25 Feb 2005, p.102]

    My favorite album from a band who puts on one of the best live shows you'll ever see.

    I think it's ill. I feel like they turned the volume down a little and then put the speakers up against the window.
