    More approachable than some of his earlier solo work, the dark melodies and distorted beats make this album at once catchy and apocalyptic.

    Dope dark beats from alternative rap's greatest producers!
    That album should be pure fire if this instrumental disc is this good!
    Only fools with crappy taste in rap music would give this a low rating!
    Definitive Jux is in the spot!

    Awesome dark melodic album that solidifies El p as one of the best modern producers. Even though most of these are his recycled beats it really shows how talented he is.

  1. Under The Radar
    As always, his found sounds and tense beats combine to form intricate patterns and anxiety-laced music, but nothing on Weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixxx3 reaches out and grabs you. [Summer 2010, p.89]
  2. For any bootlegging rappers with cerebral ambitions, this could represent the greatest thinking man's beat tape of all time. To mere listeners, it's an enveloping temporary distraction, more than fulfilling its purpose of whetting anticipation for El-P's mic-wielding return.
  3. He over-thought most of the tracks, failing to maintain focus on or fully develop any particular theme. Various elements drop in and out at terse intervals, presenting an idea for just enough time to intern it before moving on. But El-P has always had a theatrical flair, creating music that transports you to another place and time, and several tracks here do suck you into his demonic hip-hop underworld.
