Spin (p.80) - "With Wiley's vocal attack as sharply acerbic as ever, 100% PUBLISHING is a boldly independent declaration."The Wire (p.55) - "[T]he beats on 100% PUBLISHING are often great, a set of slick variations on ravey, laser-guided halfstep."CMJ - "Wiley uses an array of sounds to sculpt his beats, drawing from the grinding whine of a dubstep-y bass, hollow industrial drums, the zap of a laser, the trill of a synth, a few keys on a piano."Q (Magazine) (p.112) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he album's obvious sense of purpose -- Wiley handling all the production and MC duties -- makes a refreshing change..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[Wiley switches] from underground sounds to Top 10 hits by way of diversions like the skittering avant-garde oddness of 'I Just Woke Up.'"Pitchfork (Website) - "The title track reasserts Wiley's original DIY success story, and 'Your Intuition' makes admitting past diversions and future changes into a sign of strength..."Clash (magazine) - "[S]olidly written, produced, vocalled and recorded entirely by Wiley himself....The highlights on this album can easily stand proud alongside any previous output."Uncut (magazine) (p.104) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "He's still his own muse, his raps reflecting on everything from his legacy to the minutiae of daily life..."0.15407

Magnet (1-2/98, p.74) - "...plucks pop from every conceivable outlet. The record's 23 tracks are like vectors that shoot off in varied directions and benefit from the aesthetic of innovation through improvisation, while more than half of the tunes boast four-track production touches..."Option (11-12/97, p.106) - "Just when you're ready to stick a fork in the lo-fi movement and consider it done, along comes Magoo to reaffirm your faith in half-baked ideas recorded on four glorious tracks....Magoo keeps things short and sweet, rarely allowing a motif to continue more than three minutes..."31.0983
