7/10 Andrew Customer review, 6th September 2014
Wow these dead hip hop legends sure can be productive, here is another Dilla record based on work he had started but polished up posthumously. Give them what they want is a decent, bumping hip hop beat, as is The Doe on the flip. It's recognisably Dilla, but releases like this can ruin the legacy of the deceased, this doesn't, but you hope that won't happen as there had to be a limit to what they can find that is worth putting out. You get a bonus beat / instumental track 'No Ones Home' plus Instrumentals of the previous two tracks, but in honesty its filler to make the record feel less lightweight. Its a nice package, clear vinyl, nice sleeve etc and there is clearly love behind a lot of the work being done to cement Dilla's place in music history, but you hope that doesn't get lost amidst the desire to simultaneously cash in too.
Dilla fans can buy this, its good, those unfamiliar with him but wishing to dip a toe in should head straight to Donuts though. That is his masterpiece.
