Reception

The album received generally favorable reviews from music critics. XXL magazine gave it an "XL" rating (4 out of 5), praising Polo's decision to feature "some of the East Coast's finest vets and samples." RapReviews.com gave the album an 8/10 rating, and called him "a one man band, creating instead of compiling." Stylus magazine gave it a B+ rating, noting that he pays "homage to the latter Golden Age through scratched hooks, graveyard strings, and breakbeats redolent of worn vinyl and dust." The album was nominated for Rap Recording of the Year at the 2008 Juno Awards.
