  1. Raw beats, sick rhymes, nothing obvious or tired.
  2. There’s a remarkable continuity from track to track, and its obvious those contributing to Venomous Villain are long-time fans of Dumile’s work.
  3. While it is simply impossible to duplicate the raw power and energy of [Vaudeville Villian], the newly resurrected Viktor proffers a tolerable continuation of his street hustle and ice-cold thuggery.
  4. Too much roam and wander for some, but Doom-heads looking for the perfect downer couldn't ask for much more.
  5. The tracks highlighting Vik are showstoppers as usual, and his dominate wordplay only reiterates why others should drop the mic when any of DOOM’s personas enter the booth.

    He sounds darker and more menacing than ever. [Oct 2004, p.105]
