    Beautiful, seamless, articulate.... Rarely does such a work of art grace the current release section these days, don't hesitate to swoop on this,one of the few albums I have not regretted purchasing in a very long time.

    Nothing to Fear is sicknastygood. The oldies are real slick, too. This music makes me smile with glee.

    This will be in the hip hop hall of fame its classic sample based hip hop which birthed the golden age of hip hop.

    This is absolutely amazing. Like a trip down mix-ology lane. Very Kid-Koalaish although obviously Steinski did it first.

    Great, nerdy fun. Plenty of hooks and ingenius samples. Amazing value and songs.

  1. Rap music has rarely gotten more virtuosic and creative than it does here.

    '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]

    Not all connect, but a bonus disc, the soon-vanished 2002 full-length Nothing to Fear, compensates. Buy this before it vanishes, too.
