Allmusic4/5 stars[4]
Pitchfork(8.2/10)[2]
  • The Allmusic (4/5) review by Andy Kellman awarded the album 4 stars stating "what also sets Dâm apart from his contemporaries is a total reliance on, and mastery of, old gear; that's how some of these tracks swing like the best of Mtume's '80s albums while bouncing, kicking, and squirming like Zapp and early Prince."[4]
  • The Pitchfork Media (8.2/10) review by Nate Patrin states that "Toeachizown is a deep, astute collection that feels like a natural resuscitation and progression of funk as it stood just before hip hop usurped it."[2]
  • The Guardian (unrated) review by Alex Macpherson states that "Though DâM-FunK's brilliant debut album, Toeachizown, is unmistakably funk in lineage, it somehow sounds unlike anything else."[1]
