    Hurries from one strangely unsatisfying sparkle to the next. [5 Jun 2005]
  3. You'll keep looking for songs with more depth than "Ba Bump," only to find that they're basically all at that level.
  4. So safe and sanitised it makes The Fugees sound like NWA.
  5. Spin

    The Peas give fun a bad name. [Jul 2005, p.104]
  6. There's nary an original note on the entire album.
  7. They are to hip-hop what No Doubt was to ska.

    Unique and fresh album consisting of a great variety of styles including Pilipino, Jamaican, Rap, Hip-hop, and an intriguing Beach-sound. Unique and fresh album consisting of a great variety of styles including Pilipino, Jamaican, Rap, Hip-hop, and an intriguing Beach-sound. Different from the Elephunk record, but the new tracks are phunky and fresh. You can't resist from bobbin' your head and wanting to get down to this album. The Peas were not affraid of change and they got down to "Business." Love the album!!! Expand

It has the ability to make you feel as if you've just been dumbed down Goodness, the stupidity of this album cannot be underestimated. It has the ability to make you feel as if you've just been dumbed down several hundred IQ points. Really, just pathetic, horrific and unlistenable. Expand
