AllMusic

A mind-bending, low-key triumph, the kind of magnetic album that takes around a dozen spins to completely unpack.

Yes, I do like this album more than BOBS. It has such a huge replay value, the production is amazing and Mos Def's energy on here is just brilliant.

Slating 'The Ecstatic' above 'Black on Both Sides' is probably heresy in most hip-hop head circles, but I can't deny my gut, and my gut tells me that this thing is all the lyricism and slippery flows of BoBS with even better production (much courtesy to the one and only Madlib -- and his brother), more immediate political themes, and much more energy for much of the record.

I can't shake it, and I don't want to. This thing is fucking great.
