HipHopDX

Although it feels druggy and improvisational at times, the outcome is soberingly great.

Consequence of Sound

Despite the big names (he invited a veritable indie hip-hop A-list), Maman’s vision shines without overpowering.

70
PopMatters

Russian Roulette turns out to be less about stepping out from behind the velvet curtain, and more about the magic he can weave from behind it.

68
Pitchfork

It's a producer's album, and that means it predicts the creeping conservatism of an artist who has decided that creating songs is less interesting than creating sonic collages.
