It's the most appropriate possible tribute to a man none of us really understood. In life MF DOOM was enigmatic, ridiculous and often deeply frustrating, and Super What? allows him the same attributes in death, without overtly sentimentalising his legacy.

Exclaim!

Super What? is hardly DOOM's definitive work, but it gives us one last snapshot of a solitary mind that spurted in wonderfully volatile ways.

AllMusic
The album is more or less par for the course as a Czarface release, which means that it's perfectly fun and enjoyable, especially if you geek out on comics and Saturday morning cartoons as much as they do.

Dip into ‘Super What?’ with expectations low and a good time is likely.

DOOM and Czarface's chemistry and creativity is still present on Super What, though with slightly diminishing returns.

DOOM really out here dropping fire from the grave, huh?
This slapped. There were a few things that had me worried for this record, like the fact that last time we got a CZAR + DOOM album, it wasn't that good.

Just picked up this album on vinyl and figured I’d give it a review after my first listen. I have listened to some (not a lot) MF DOOM and really enjoyed his music so I figured I would enjoy this.
