    Quasimoto is Madlib at his most creative and compelling. [May 2005, p.83]
  2. What's beyond doubt is the magical blend of the surreal and the fantastical that made 'The Unseen' so memorable is once again in the fullest effect on this showcase of fearlessly skewed production, dense organic vibes and hemp & helium-fuelled raps that make up this smoked-out saunter through the back streets of the cosmo-according-to-Lord Quas.
  3. If Madlib were somehow to commandeer a time machine, kidnap Sly & The Family Stone, Prince Paul, The Firesign Theater, Melvin Van Peebles, Redd Foxx, Negativland, and The Last Poets, lock them in a studio together on Haight Ashbury during the Summer Of Love with Hunter S. Thompson's drug supply, then force them to record an album together, the result might sound a little like The Further Adventures of Lord Quas.
  4. Further Adventures of Lord Quas is a record that can satisfy the cult fan just as it will sate anyone who has an open mind to music that creates its own barriers.
  5. Heavy, like delirious laughter looped ad infinitum, Lord Quas quivers with psychedelic rhythm.
  6. Seventy minutes of mind-bending, head-spinning hip hop is a lot to take in one sitting, but this is nevertheless hugely inventive stuff if taken in smaller doses. [Jun 2005, p.116]
  7. About as funny as pouring weedkiller on your genitals and then setting fire to them. [7 May 2005, p.66]

    I expected a weaker safer album following the unseen, but instead found a bolder more risky album that's simply fantastic.

    This is the best hip hop album in years. Madlib is the most creative man on earth right now and anything he touches just seems to turn to This is the best hip hop album in years. Madlib is the most creative man on earth right now and anything he touches just seems to turn to gold. On this album he uses soft fusion music from bands such as Weather Report and turns the into this incredible groove like you've never heard before. Bartender talk just blows your mind, as do so many other tracks on this album. Expand

    The greatest album I've ever heard. NME is clearly lamer than I could imagine. Madlib is the MAN!!!

    Takes a couple of listens to get into it but well worth the little effort to do so. BRILLIANT

    Initially it seems overproduced and too layered. Reveals itself after repeated listenings. I had to go back to it a month after I initially Initially it seems overproduced and too layered.

    Just because he produced Madvillainy and Shades of Blue doesn't mean he can make a convoluted, disjointed, and wholly unfunny album and Just because he produced Madvillainy and Shades of Blue doesn't mean he can make a convoluted, disjointed, and wholly unfunny album and maintain cred...Madlib may be the man, but this CD sucks.
