  • Summary: Amon Tobin and Joe "Doubleclick" Chapman join together to release their debut album together featuring Sway, Ms. Jade, and Ce'Cile as guests.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 9
  2. Negative: 0 out of 9
  1. A few rhythmically awkward moments detract from the album’s overall flow, particularly on 'High Life,' but chalk that up to two competing staccato production styles.
  2. The real relevation, though, is guest rapper Sway, who ditches his cheeky pop persona in favour of a prowling delivery perfectly suited to the title track's rolling bass and Eastern-tinged 'Jewels And Gems.' [May 2009, p.113]
  3. 80
    The only aspect that prevents this album from achieving flawless cohesion is the fact that each track sounds so distinctly different, so much that it’s almost a chore to readjust to the new sounds one is bombarded with from track to track.
  4. The whole record is a smart little left-turn for everyone involved. And if it's not quite an unalloyed triumph, I would totally play a video game with this soundtrack.
  5. Modern cityscapes, dilapidated by neglect, spring to mind when listening to police-dissing banger, 'What You Know.' Its police-siren chorus is the one moment of levity on a somewhat harsh release. [Spring 2009, p.77]
  6. 60
    Sway, however, doesn't command proceedings quite like Chuck D and the prosaic narratives of tracks like 'That Girl' are no substitute for verbal fireworks. Nearly though. [May 2009, p.101]
  7. Amon Tobin and Joe "Doubleclick" Chapman have created some truly interesting sounds, but the end result is sadly just another trip-hop excursion with lame rapping over the top. [May 2009, p.123]
