The No Music is the second studio album by American hip hop duo Themselves. It was released on Anticon in 2002.

Reception[edit]

The No Music received mixed reviews from critics. Thomas Quinlan of Exclaim! felt that "it turns out to be another Anticon disappointment, although it's still better than the last few".[3] Ed Howard of Stylus Magazine gave the album a B+ rating, saying: "It's far from perfect, and there are still moments where the experiments fall short, but overall this represents the fulfillment of the substantial promise made by Circle and cLOUDDEAD".[5] Daniel Thomas-Glass of Dusted Magazine called it "a masterful piece of work".[2]
