Spin (12/95, p.82) - 8 (out of 10) - "...Today's rappers aren't interested in sharing any knowledge with outsiders.

Rolling Stone (6/13/96, pp.85-86) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...a hair away from being flawless....The aural jaggedness of contemporary clubland not only perfectly complements EBTG's piercing words and aching vocals but it also burns away any residual preciousness.
