Montreal Gazette: "Boots Riley is a consummately charismatic front man, establishing his as one of the best live rap acts going, after Philadelphia untouchables the Roots."
Austin American-Statesman: "The Coup isn't a rock 'n' roll band. It's a hip-hop band. But they are a miracle of everyday life and proved it at Emo's on Saturday night. I have no idea when the Coup turned into one of the best bands on the planet, but here we are."
