CRITIC REVIEWS

85
The 405

A surprising - if unsurprisingly accomplished - entry into the pantheon of modern, intelligent underground hip-hop.

80
NME

The result is excellence as usual, with DOOM rumbling along between sinister and silly while JJ slings in off-kilter operatics. 

76
Beats Per Minute

Some genuinely innovative production multiplied by DOOM’s erratic, yet smooth lyricism makes for a solid experience, albeit an experience made somewhat difficult by some filler tracks. 

73
Pitchfork

Key to the Kuffs hits all of DOOM's angles, from the well-documented (wise-ass shit-talker) to the underrated (political agitator) to the overlooked (sentimental romantic). 

70
musicOMH

Key To The Kuffs is a ballsy and hyperactive, yet frustratingly inconsistent, album. 

60
Drowned in Sound

Key to the Kuffs disappoints by shying away from greatness where we’ve come to expect nothing less.

60
Consequence of Sound

While it may not hit the heights of Madvillainy (to be fair, what could?), there are some strong verses and some equally strong production.

60
No Ripcord

Keys to the Kuffs has a few too many stop-starts and ripped seams, and DOOM’s flow often seems deliberate rather than intuitive, which results in a dearth of quotable lines.
