    The sad thing is that if this concept had been presented as a one-off concert, it could have been amazing; a fitting tribute from the brightest stars of the 21st century to the man who taught them everything they know. But on record, it simply fails to take off. Quite frankly Quincy Jones, and his legacy, deserve better.

    Beaus$Eros seems to re-hash the sonic aesthetic of Busdriver's earlier releases, but this time with less impressive beats, weak vocals, and little to no live instrumentation.
