Rolling Stone (8/10/95, p.59) - 3.5 Stars out of 5 - Good - "...This self-produced album is not one long throbbing dance marathon; the group's unifying vision of emotive pop music pulls together a collection of actual songs. They're all emboldened by Heather Small's lustrous contralto, catchy melodies and a house-music undertow..."Spin (6/95, p.99) - 7 - Flawed Yet Worthy - "...Although the instrumentation...relies on traditional musicianship rather than samples, the riffs and tunes quote liberally from 30 years of American R&B. M People's consistently substantial songs generate much body heat..."Entertainment Weekly (5/19/95, p.63) - "...has more than its share of house-quaking grooves. Their secret? Delectable R&B-based arrangements layered on top of the beat and Heather Small's smoky, ecstasy-or-bust voice..." - Rating: A-Musician (5/95, pp.90-92) - "...a dream you can dance to....is no longer interested in charting the outer limits of clubland, but rather turning the underground sounds of yesterday--lush disco sweeps with butt-burning basslines, sway-your-arms choruses--into today's hits..."0.1824791

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..."0.1520659

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..."20.24826

The Wire (p.61) - "[T]he placement of sounds is particularly hallucinatory, with electronics occasionally devouring the rhythms section of drummer Chad Taylor and bassist Jason Ajemian."Down Beat (p.85) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "A live performance filled with atmospheric electro-acoustic transformations, CHRONICLE presents a trio with a range of textures, tonalities and approaches to group interaction."JazzTimes (p.94) - "Our preconceived expectations of what things might be are challenged, mocked and then reimagined, only to dissolve and reemerge yet again in new forms."16.88748

Spin (p.74) - "[T]his Swedish underground supergroup's debut suggests the dusty riches of some long-lost EP locked away in psychedelic folk-rock Valhalla."Q (Magazine) (p.117) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he key to The Amazing's appeal lies in the interplay between Gunrup's soft vocals and Fiske's expert, yet tastefully restrained, guitar work."Record Collector (magazine) (p.96) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "THE AMAZING is graceful and resolutely well thought out..."5.800076

CMJ (6/02, p.15) - "...A multi-layered road of reverb swept guitar and muted organ tones that waver and build with nods to the Velvet Underground....This terrain sounds familiar, but good, like an old love letter you can't stop reading."Mojo (Publisher) (10/03, p.111) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Secret Machines create a rare mix of spacious grandeur and quiet intimacy....Rarely short of spellbinding..."0.2195224

Spin (3/98, p.130) - 6 (out of 10) - "...Forget coherance: Unlike Tricky, Goldie is no formal genius. His transitions are sometimes merely unbrilliant, sometimes unintentionally comic, or just plain nonexistant....Elsewhere, Goldie more successfully infuses the genre with hip-hop hardness and R&B lace..."Vibe (2/98, p.117) - "...Rising to the challenge of expanding and raising the idiom of jungle beyond the borders of its underground-music confines, SATURNZRETURN, Goldie's intoxicating, authobiographical new double-disc, is simultaneously self-indulgent and brilliant..."Melody Maker (1/24/98, p.34) - "...SATURNZ RETURN challenges you like no other Nineties album has done....Goldie is already hearing the sounds of the 24th century in his head."NME (Magazine) (1/24/98, p.34) - 8 (out of 10) - "...SATURNZ RETURN is an astonishingly ambitious opus and, given its length and emotional breadth, also a remarkably consistent one....Ladies and gentlemen, Goldie is floating in space."0.1536657
