  1. Entertainment Weekly
    Quaye's thoroughly urbanized, half-mad brand of African roots music is alive, well, and wonderfully prickly. [3/2/01, p.70]
  2. On Vanguard, the same basic formula is employed, only the emphasis is much more on reggae influences, and the experimentation with genre boundaries is considerably toned down. There’s still much that shines, however.
  3. It's made up of some songs you think you shouldn't like, some you weren't ready for, and some you'll have to rewind to make sure you heard correctly. It is an album with no peers. And that, my friends, is a recommendation.
