Source Rating
Allmusic 4/5 stars[3]
Pitchfork Media 7.0/10[1]
Tiny Mix Tapes 3/5 stars [4]

Pitchfork gave the album a seven out of ten rating, stating that the album "offers a gimmick that just can't be beat." and praised songs such as "MP3 Killed the Radio Star", "Never Underestimate the Value of a Holler (Vipee-pee mix)"[1] Pitchfork went on to mention that other songs such as "Kiddy Needs a New Pair of Laptops" "barely touches any of its source material...I suppose it's entertaining, but I doubt it took more than a few hours to throw together." and "Smack My Glitch Up" barely manipulates Kylie Minogue-- after a minute or so of DSP-garbled synthlines, there's little more than a few extra beats to distinguish it from straight-up Kylie."[1] Allmusic awarded the album four stars out of five, opining that it was "a fun album, though it seems rushed, perhaps because Kid606 wanted to stake his claim in the genre."[3]
