  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (11/11/99, p.136) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...ULTRA-OBSCENE dodges convention: Its jerky polyrhythms retain the dense complexity of [Roni] Size's bittersweet jams....suggests a punky android Liza Minnelli let loose in a virtual cabaret."
    Q (12/99, p.128) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...skittery, slippery beats with other familiar Bristolian influences....make for an album that promises to broaden the parameters of this ailing genre."
    Alternative Press (11/99, pp.88-9) - 4 out of 5 - "...signals a new era for jungle and beyond....as good as it is important."
    Muzik (9/99, p.76) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Welcome the first true vocal star of jungle....This is more like having your ass kicked by Tank Girl to the tune of 180bpm breakbeats..."
    CMJ (1/10/00, p.21) - Included in CMJ's "RPM '99 Top 5" - "...the most progressive d'n'b album of the year....dangerous shuffling breakbeats and Leonie Laws' seductive spine-tingling vocals proves to be a potent combo..."
    Vibe (10/99, p.191) - "...plays it straight, sticking [Roni] Size's detailed rhythms in the background in favor of [Lennie] Law's raw, streetwise rants....The most compelling parts of ULTRA OBSCENE remain just beneath the surface, where Size and [DJ] Die spin out their dark, venomous instrumental scores..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (11/99, p.110) - "...[Roni Size's] strong vocals dominate...riding over hectic, noisy rhythms and firece live instrumentation....a thrilling, strangely rock-influenced album..."
