Album Reviews:

Rolling Stone (p.64) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Sparrow the social commentator is in force, sometimes in a time-capsule way. And rap-battle fans should hear the uproarious head-to-head with Lord Melody, `Picong Duel'..."

CMJ - "As a folk musician for an era of sea-change, being prolific without succumbing to droll navel-gazing is where, as always, Mighty Sparrow shines."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Over brass-blasted rhythmic cauldrons, Sparrow's lyrics can veer from topical to lusty in the course of a song..."

Uncut (magazine) (p.92) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Sparrow, ever the mercurial lyricist, offers sharp commentary....SPARROWMANIA rocks."
