Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Spin (1/01, p.73) - Ranked #17 in Spin's "Top 20 Albums of the Year [2000]".

Spin (10/00, pp.175-6) - 7 out of 10 - "...A giddily disorienting pastiche of warped snaps, resin-caked jazz, and crusty comedy record samples....he puts unpredictable spins on mundane subject matter..."

Alternative Press (10/00, p.107) - 3 out of 5 - "...A monotonous jazzy gray, and it's definitely an acquired taste."

The Wire (5/00, p.65) - "...He sounds perfect....the production is a fazed, dubby take on A Tribe Called Quest styled jazz beats....representing just about everything that makes HipHop great in the two triple zero."

CMJ (1/08/01, p.27) - Included in CMJ's "Best Hip-Hop Albums" of 2000.

CMJ (5/22/00, p.35) - "...Lootpack guru Madlib drops some serious and oddball heat on this side project...loosely based on Melvin Van Peebles' 'Sweet Sweetback's Baadassss Song'..."

Melody Maker (8/26/00, p.59) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...If comedy football manager Alan Ball turned his 'unique' vocal sound (think baby Spice with a sore throat) to hip-hop, it might sound like this..."

Mojo (Publisher) (3/01, p.22) - "...Witty sonic cut-ups and a homespun attention to detial make THE UNSEEN a treat..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 - "Madlib has dreamt-up a hip hop anti-hero who will endure."

NME (Magazine) (9/4/00, p.35) - 8 out of 10 - "...One more inspired step into, quite literally, THE UNSEEN....the most addictive record you'll spend your entire summer trying to decipher..."
