Uncut (11/02, p.141) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...Their landmark blend of pop, rage and skilful self-marketing conitnues to reverberate...."

Alternative Press (7/95, p.88) - Ranked #45 in AP's list of the 'Top 99 Of '85-'95' - "...Recorded in a garage, this record integrate[s] sensational violence and sexist bravado with cheesy house-party music, staying charming all the way....this record eventually sent rap to the gallows as imitators took the gospel to heart: 'Life ain't nothing but bitches and money'..."

Q (Magazine) (p.118) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ith Dr. DRe pulling the strings and ramping up the beats, its significance remains undeniable."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.118) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t still sounds magnificent. Made before using samples became too expensive, there's a riot of them here, selected with funk-aware good taste."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.93) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[E]ssential. It is, after all, a hip-hop foundation block from the sampledelic days, pointing the way to gangsta rap's 90s rule."
