"It's like ODB and Busta Rhymes had a baby and fed it too much morphene.....The result was the future sound of Hip Hop. This album probably should've come out in the year 2020. A fusion of Jazz, Blues, Soul, and Hip Hop. You can't label this album with a genre, cuz it's in a class of it's own.
Dudley sings way off key but has an amazing flow that's never been heard before. Listen twice and you'll be captivated. There is something unearthly yet so earthly about his voice, lyrics, and of course the beats, produced by none other than Madlib. This album is essential to anyone who Puffs the Magic Dragon.....Yes It's that Stoney. It's amazing, nothing less, It'll make you beleive in time travelWe should all thank Dudly Perkins for coming back from the future to save music

"Madlib lays down some extraordinarily grimey beats for this blessed-out brotha from anotha motha. There is NOTHING else that sounds like this, and it might be too experimental for some folks. Nevertheles, anyone who likes hip hop that dares to be different and true at the same time needs to check this ish out. Think Outkast mixed with ODB, Sun Ra, Gil-Scott H. and a dash of Primo thrown in and you peep the crazy steelo here. If you tire of Dudley P's nasal flow (which I haven't) seek out the instrumentals on vinyl."

"There is something beautifully deranged about this work, like the acid dreams of our Jazz forefathers. It ebbs and flows between reality and some alternate universe, which produces the effect of a warped, time signature. These wave variances have subtle effects on the body causing the brain to produce a chemical response. These chemicals do one of two things; they help you to see the doorway to this alternate audile dimension in all its wonders and potential. OR these chemicals initiate a rapid shut-down of your alternate awareness, anchoring you to the most common version of reality shared by the people of this small world; denying the very existence of this doorway. To put it briefly, people who take themselves too seriously aren't going to get this CD!! Dudley and M@dl:b do to hip-hop what George Clinton did to funk. Redefinition, redirection, the boldness, arrogance even) to play around with it mix it up (FUN is the KeY). Like those kids that take things apart to see how they work, Dudley and M@dl:b dismantle some of the rules and the structure and put them back together again off kilter and slightly askew. In that imperfection is where the strength of their music lies. It produces an organic warmth that illuminates the dark crevices of your mind, with a lil' light."
