The 405

Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color is a breath of fresh air within the politically parched genre where swag rules over substance 

79
Pitchfork

Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color is more of a refinement than a deviation for Brother Ali

70
Consequence of Sound

He raps not like a hard-ass with a chip on his shoulder, but like a prophet on a soapbox.

70
PopMatters

Ali knows that with this album, he’s supplying something that infighting anarchists never could: a sense of unity, a sense of purpose, a sense that you’ll be putting on this repeat for more than a year.

85
Brother Ali, as always, delivers a humble and ubiquitously relatable message through his art - something that he consistently does at a superior level. Thoughtful, personal, and genuine, the album shines in a genre filled with decreasingly intellectual content and perspectives.
