Spin (8/96, pp.98-100) - Reasonably Good - "...Recording for the first time without Prince Paul....De La Soul have settled for a series of serviceable, mid-tempo grooves. There's a not-unpleasing nimbleness about STAKES, but toying with a groove, not merely establishing it, has always been the appeal of a De La record..."Entertainment Weekly (7/12/96, p.58) - "...Musically, they've traded in their gorgeously weird jazz-based soundscapes for sparser, straight-ahead beats....Still, De La Soul prove they can snap on new-jack poseurs as effectively as they did on the old ones..." - Rating: BUncut (6/03, p.133) - "...It was on 1996's STAKES IS HIGH that they found their true mature voice..."The Source (7/96, p.87) - 4 Mics - Slammin' - "...Unlike trend chameleons whose personalities flow to the ebbs of ringing cash registers, da Soul spits into the winds of the reigning orthodoxy, targeting gangsta poseurs and microwave Mafioso..."Rap Pages (7/96, p.29) - 8 (out of 10) - "...With each album...De La Soul invariably shoulder the burden placed on them by fans to once again save Hip-Hop from the throes of commercialism....De La Soul's mission this time is to serve as a counterpoint to the `players' who have simply dominated Hip-Hop over the last few years with images and slogans centering on violence..."New York Times (Publisher) (7/28/96, Sec.2, p.30) - "...[STAKES IS HIGH] sounds deceptively relaxed and bouyant as De La Soul pulls off some complex maneuvers simultaneously....De La Soul has found its balance again. Its vamps are calm but determined, dipping into jazz and old soul. And the raps...are more straightforward..."NME (Magazine) (6/29/96, p.53) - 6 (out of 10) - "...no, they're NOT going to be hippy-rap clowns any more for anyone....at least they'll get respect from the hip-hop community by making another no-frills, monochrome rap record that is, well, alright..."0.4832205
