Entertainment Weekly (10/29/99, p.115) - "...an innovative spirit sorely missed in today's hip-hop. Mixing jazzy vibes with, say, Lou Reed, samples and witty rhymes, Tribe eschewed trends in favor of making them. Even as they engaged the mind, [Their] anthems endured as party classics..." - Rating: AQ (12/99, p.168) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...The sparse, jazzy cuts still marvel, as do the whimsical raps of quacky Q-Tip and 'ruffneck' sidekick Phife tag-teaming over thrumming bass, scratchy breaks and insistent, head-nodding beats....we'll not likely hear [a group like this] again."CMJ (11/15/99, p.26) - "...makes for a damn fine 'Cliff's Notes' on A Tribe Called Quest's decade-long reign, complete with the hits, the anthems and even a few slept-on gems..."The Source (12/99, p.260) - "...remnants of what made Tribe so great...are collectively showcased in such a fine manner that the need for wet hankies may be dire....a testament to what kind of playing field these guys were once on, and, how much their original flavor will be missed."Mojo (Publisher) (12/99, pp.128-9) - "...an eminently ownable collection."0.2924855

Certainly, the most common point of reference is the Velvets of `Jesus' and `I'm Set Free' melancholia rather than violence..."Record Collector (magazine) (p.87) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] benefits from a 'proper' band sound and some beautifully constructed songs..."Uncut (magazine) (p.103) - "For STONED & DETHRONED they finally found their very own Nancy in the form of Hope Sandoval..."0.2437379

Rolling Stone (3/21/96, p.96) - 3 Stars - Good - "...there are elements of originality to be found in the way Afghan Whigs fuse alternative rock's victim mentality with funk and soul to find a moment of transcendence..."Spin (4/96, pp.111-112) - 8 - Very Good - "...wisely emphasizes the band's exceptional qualities and de-emphasizes the alt-rock overlays....when a couple of songs, like the magnificent `Going To Town' and `Faded,' use dance beats or gospel straight-up, Afghan Whigs never quite offer the mere soul recital..."Q (4/96, p.107) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...its mature aspirations and stylish gait stand tall amongst the sorry, derivative imports that constitute this year's `American Invasion'..."Melody Maker (12/21-28/96, pp.66-67) - Ranked #8 on Melody Maker's list of 1996's `Albums Of The Year.'Melody Maker (3/2/96, p.36) - Bloody Essential - "...reeks of suspicion, doubt, paranoia, double-dealing and retribution....The Whigs' brand of rock has a kind of rich meatiness which not only marks them as quintessentially male...but also gives their slabby, prime-steak sound a suffocating darkness and density..."Musician (5/96, p.93) - "...seeking new and inventive ways to depict a soul on fire...BLACK LOVE...portrays lust, revenge, anger and other juicy stuff with [Dulli's] usual impressive fervor..."RIP (5/96, p.16) - 3 - Meat & Potatoes - "...the band excels, approaching genuine rock intrigue and mystery.
