CD Inner City Griots
Entertainment Weekly (7/23/93, p.61) - "...Here's some L.A. rap that doesn't reek of post-riot jargon or empty gangsta threats. These four L.A. bohos use fluid rhymes and funky jazz jams to create some of the best hip-hop vibes since Boogie Down Productions' `Criminal Minded'..." - Rating: A-Q (7/93, p.88) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Griot tradition involves a bush-troubadour allowed free rein to criticize...The application of the term here to a South Central LA rap crew is appropriate...[the album falls] outside the genre's attitudinal poles of gangstas and New Age black hippies..."The Source (3/93, p.79) - 3.5 Stars - Very Good - "...an innovative step in the `next' direction...The best thing about this group is that they dare to be different. They provide rap with a new perspective..."
CD Let's Get Free [PA]
Rolling Stone (5/11/00, p.132) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...A statement of sedition wrapped in a synergistic blend of urgent noise, angry rhythm and rhymes that display black skill in the hour of chaos..."Entertainment Weekly (3/17/00, p.71) - "...edgy, political...Hip-hop for the underground 'and' undergrads, backed by the latest high-tech beats....a welcome break..." - Rating: BCMJ (1/08/01, p.10) - Included in CMJ's "Best of the Year" for 2000.CMJ (3/6/00, p.3) - "...an intensely charged collection of songs that aims to shake up its audience and educate it to the varying degrees of injustice inflicted by the American institution....a confrontational masterpiece..."Vibe (3/00, p.216) - "...harks back to the heyday of Public Enemy and Boogie Down Productions' enlightenment over wall-busting beats....an awesome debut....with rugged production laced with electric guitar, pig grunts, and a 2-man narrative technique..."The Source (3/00, p.246) - 3.5 mics out of 5 - "...[they] have the mentality of N.W.A. and the cultural and historical awareness of Public Enemy....conveys an almost Gothic feel [with]...the combination of smooth tracks and cleverly laid vocals....[a] conscious, Afrocentric gem."NME (Magazine) (3/4/00, p.36) - 7 out of 10 - "...an unfashionably political album that screams for change and a return to Afro-centric values in rap....a refreshing change to the current glut of buddy-boy, backslapping rap records. 'Vive la revolution' - fight the power."
CD Absence [Dlek (Group)]
Spin (p.91) - "[T]hey use industrial squall to reflect and recycle the noise of everyday life....[T]heir second album betrays a loving faith in the Rorschach realism of decaying skronk." - Grade: B+Uncut (p.92) - 4 stars out of 5 - "Beats roll deep and low like New Kingdom, guitars blaze like My Bloody Valentine, and turntablist Still spins pertinent spoken-word bites into the morass."Alternative Press (p.162) - "Dalek view hip-hop as edutainment, a vital weapon to uplift the downtrodden - and then blow their minds." - 5 out of 5The Wire (p.57) - "[Their] backing rhythms demand attention....Revealing themes such as distrust of organized religion and anger at urban oppression."Mojo (Publisher) (p.102) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[C]hronicling America's end-of-days intemperance in a densely-layered text of corpse-rotten beats, raspy soothsaying and nuclear-winter feedback."Paste (magazine) - "The social awareness and righteous anger here recall Public Enemy, Boogie Down Productions and Company Flow."
