Rolling Stone (3/5/98, p.65) - 3.5 Stars (out of 5) - "...It's a hardcore hip-hop album leavened by the party principle....It's whatever-works hip-hop, carried off in the same spirit that Puffy resurrects David Bowie or the Police for their bad bass lines..."

Entertainment Weekly (2/13/98, p.70) - "...There's plenty of infectious, party-ready hooks on this debut, along with the same kind of hard-edged rhyming and lyrically vivid images Biggie found in the hood." - Rating: A-

The Source (3/98, p.187) - 3.5 Mics (out of 5) - "...From underdogs to favorites, from rags to riches, The Lox have finally done their part to prove that all the premature acclaim was justified..."

Rap Pages (4/98, p.116) - 3 (out of 5) - "...The buzz surrounding them promised to bridge the chasm between underground and the commercial equation Bad Boy has capitalized..."
