    'In Search Of' throbs with an innovation hewn from the patchwork of the past yet anxious to transcend it and head for undiscovered planets. The real revolution is here: support future music, reject imitation - 'In Search Of' really is one of the best albums you'll hear this year. [Review of UK version]
  3. Having created the noise to which great hip and ace hop is made, they are now infusing the genre with new blood, vibe, and funk. The future just happened. [Review of UK version]
  4. A roducer's album in the best sense, showcasing the personal and lyrical over flashy technique. [Review of UK version]
  5. They retained their best ideas for themselves though, since their debut album is striking escape from mere genre. [Review of UK version]
