    It reads like a compendium of retro cool that leans on the cinematic, instrumental style of DJ shadow and Peanut Butter Wolf. [Dec 2012, p.67]

    Like other effective instrumental LPs, The Most Beautiful Ugly compiles a series of vignettes into one coherent stream.

    Free from over-use of effects and without resorting to trendy bass warping, this album is 15 original tracks of straight-ahead hip-hop and R&B influenced electronica with a moody twist.

    If you lock The Flaming Lips, Kanye West and Rustie in a studio together, they might well emerge with something sounding like this. [Dec 2012, p.112]
