Reception[edit]

  • Entertainment Weekly (No. 848, p. 77) - "[I]t's refreshing to hear Public Enemy frontman Chuck D's stentorian voice hectoring, indicting, and pontificating on New Whirl Odor like it was 1989 all over again." - Grade: B[4]
  • Mojo (p. 120) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Anyone needing passionate music that's both socially and politically engaged need look no further."
  • Mojo (p. 60) - Ranked #2 in Mojo's "Top Ten Urban Albums of 2005."
