  1. It's Broder's careful balancing act between the traditional and the abnormal that makes his music so interesting.
  2. Mojo
    80
    Challenging and sometimes extraordinarily beautiful. [Mar 2002, p.108]
  3. The Wire
    80
    This isn't really the future of HipHop, but as a fleeting reverie on its conflicted present, it makes for a fantastic detour. [#217, p.55]
  4. Uncut
    80
    At its most ascetic, Fog sees Broder kicking down the same fence post of convention as Tortoise, the Beta Band and latter-day Radiohead. [Mar 2002, p.111]
  5. Broder gently provokes your senses with curious combinations of divergent instruments, creating a collection of progressive musical oddities that is entertaining as well as musically fascinating.
  6. The restless Broder can’t see the problem with shredding flavours as disparate as folk, rock, post-rock, the avant-garde, hip hop, electronica into a powerful, sometimes jarring, sometimes bewitching pulp, and neither should any music fan. Listen and free your mind from convention.
  7. Magnet
    70
    It isn't always pleasant, but it's always surprisingly pretty. [#54, p.88]
  8. Surprises are around every turn.
  9. Mixer
    60
    The tracks are often tuneful, but they're too downtempo for anything but the chill room. [May 2002, p.74]
  10. Like Beck before he developed the Prince fixation, Fog's anti-puritanism makes this a constantly startling, wholly addictive joy.
  11. Alternative Press
    60
    This disc contains some intriguing moments. [Apr 2002, p.74]
