Professional ratings

Source Rating
Allmusic 4.5/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review awarded the album 4½ stars stating "No Agreement follows the Afro-beat template to a masterful level: amazingly catchy guitar lines that replicate a bass guitar in their construction, a second guitarist to add some JB's funk power, driving horn section proclamations, intricate saxophone, trumpet and organ improv solos, and then Fela Anikulopo Kuti's wit and message for the people... the solos are magically inspired and the rhythm section rolls on with the power of a steamroller".[2]
