"Don't like drum & bass? I challenge anyone to listen to this album and say the same. The one time when I've ever heard a d+b DJ & MC working in perfect harmony save for some of Reprazent's best tunes."

Marquee Moon
Marquee Moon
"Not your typical no sleep album but the ten minute title track is one of the most perfect pieces of sonic brilliance ever to be labelled a 'song'."
