"Too many people have focused on the beautiful simplicity of the lyrics that make up the masterpiece No Agreement. And they would not be wrong. When Fela moans, 'My Mama talk, Your Papa talk', you know Baba 70 is feeling the pain for his people. Our ignorance...our ignorance. Yet it is Dog Eat Dog that even more of us have casually ignored simply because it is an instrumental. Dog Eat is an absolute masterpiece. Playing this track for the first time in 10 odd years was like the feeling you get when you unwrap delicious smelling moin-moin from its fresh green leaves. It is pure class. It is Baba at his band-leader best. It was recorded back in the days when he still had to vocally instruct Africa 70 but that notwithstanding it's still all about very tight musical arrangement. Improve the quality of your life and listen with intent. It would have got five stars but then what would you give Palava, Yellow Fever, BONN, Shuffering & Smiling, Unknown Soldier? You have to understand..."
Average Fela Is Still Way Better Than The Best Of Britney Sp

"This is Fela at less than full strength. The 'perpetrators' of this CD have, and there are many examples of this, mislabelled the material: The first track is actually 'Dog Eat Dog', and the second track is 'No Agreement'. The clowns that put this CD together obviously didn't even bother to listen to what Fela was singing about. I'd look elsewhere frankly."
