The WireWhile Steinski's work with DeFranco aka Double Dee, is the most dazzling--precisely because it avoids the pitfalls of run of the mill culture jamming and guerrilla media tactics--Steinski's solo tracks certainly have their own pleasures, even if they are more straightforwardly textural than his collabotation with Double Dee. [June 2008, p.57]
Alternative Press'The Motorcade Sped On,' a track that chops up funky beats with verteran newscaster Walter Cronkite reporting the death of President John F. Kennedy, is worth the price of admission alone. [July 2008, p.170]
UncutCD2 is a quirky new mixtape which proves he's still up to his old tricks. [Dec 2008, p.116]

PauleyS.Aug 3, 2008Nothing to Fear is sicknastygood. The oldies are real slick, too. This music makes me smile with glee.
MycroftW.Sep 20, 2008Worth your dollar for the Lessons alone. Grab it!
SinclairS.Sep 1, 2008This is absolutely amazing. Like a trip down mix-ology lane. Very Kid-Koalaish although obviously Steinski did it first.
CM.Sep 7, 2008I don't understand how this is the top rated record of the year. To me this sounds like a very average Cut Chemist mixtape. The record I don't understand how this is the top rated record of the year. To me this sounds like a very average Cut Chemist mixtape. The record suffers greatly from all the mix-ins and random clips of dialogue. At almost no point does Steinski allow the melody to stand alone and take the listener anywhere. Good technical mixing and cutting,but the beats are so-so and the melodies suffer from constant and incredibly annoying interruption. By no means should this collection be considered the best album to emerge from 2008.… Expand
