AllMusic/Stephen Thomas Erlewine: “Musically, it’s a lively affair,
breaking free of the signature approximated-Prince beats, as they
borrow heavily from classic soul, breakbeat aesthetics, and post-
modern alt-culture, tying it together with live beats… a pretty terrific
listen and one of the most adventurous, intriguing hip-hop albums
in a long, long time.”
Full review here. Score: 4/5.

Turn Up The Volume: The Sly and Family Stone
