Said Rolling Stone of the album:
If you made a hipster-rap bonus baby in a laboratory, you couldn't do much better than Theophilus London. The 23-year-old Trinidad-born Brooklyn MC's neo-retro hip-hop mashes up TV on the Radio's vocal cadences, old-school break-dance beats and the forlorn melodic tug of a Smiths fan (he dropped This Charming Mixtape in 2009). "Why Even Try" recalls Tom Tom Club's electro-bubblegum classic "Genius of Love," but place-holder lyrics—“ "Back on the road again/Hitting Paris on a 10," from "All Around the World"—show that even in hipster rap, you need to rock the words, too.
Said Sara on TeganandSara.com, the band's official website:
It’s been a secret dream of mine to sing on a hip hop track, something where i could use a different voice, different spirit. i was so delighted/excited/freaked out when i got an opportunity to do exactly that with the phenomenal Theophilus London! -skq
