Critical reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 3.5/5 stars[3]

Allmusic - "...The New Season is a cross-California collaboration between the Sacramento-based rapper and Compton's MC Eiht that's refreshingly free of the usual territory-marking: this is a true collaboration between two gifted MCs, both of whom are working at their respective peaks throughout..."[3]

Tower Records - "...Lynch Hung's tracks have a whiff of old tales retold, relating the various codes of the 'hood and the inevitability of thug life and death. The production is spacious and airy, the beats have a slow West Coast measure and precision..."[4]
