Two Sisters do it for themselves on 'B-Boys Beware,' a slice of Arabian Prince-style juddering electro...and poet Nikki Giovanni's 'Ego Tripping,' written in 1973 predates Ultramagnetic MCs' Kool Keith-led Ego 'Trippin'' by 15 years..."0.4356365

This is the real thing."Kerrang (Magazine) (p.66) - Ranked #16 in Kerrang's "20 Greatest Albums of 2006" -- "A pop-centric masterpiece, littered with star turns..."0.3734027

(Felt)'..."Spin (p.43) - Ranked #20 in Spin's 'The Top 40 Albums Of 2011' -- "They may invoke the fiery nationalism of the Last Poets, but they're savvy enough to welcome anyone who wants to join the dance."CMJ - "Butler drops sparse, fragmented beats beneath a web of reverb-dripping vocals and muffled synths, while also leaning on soul tropes and old-world melodies..."Q (Magazine) (p.116) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] the lava-like bass and shuddering beats suggesting a familiarity with dubstep's experimental margins."Mojo (Publisher) (p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]n the category of great rap reinventions, file it next to Daniel Dumile's post-KMD rebirth as MF Doom and Ultramagnetic's MC Kool Keith re-training as Dr Octagon."Pitchfork (Website) - "[I]f some of Butler's rhymes and sonics are breezier than before, his tracks still retain their moody, hard-thudding, and sometimes psychedelic atmospheres."Uncut (magazine) (p.98) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "There's an earworm-like lure in every track, but the hushed, frantically percussive 'Yeah You' is a highlight."0.3111689

HERE TO SAVE YOU ALL is solid, dynamic and refreshing..."Melody Maker (4/20/96, p.46) - "...pushes sonic frontiers while engaging in a one-man war on humankind....tours the darkside with a body-breaking bass on the underside..."Rap Pages (5/96, p.33) - 7 (out of 10) - "...a blend of rugged rhythms featuring dope punch lines and hooks. His rhymes run through warped rhythms, making for a nonstop head-nod....There's nothing Chino XL won't say to get his message across..."NME (Magazine) (5/11/96, p.46) - 6 (out of 10) - "...[Chino] is riveting precisely because he doesn't pull punches..."0.2750426
