    A group who haven’t made any music together since 1998 have actually managed to make one of the best albums this year

  2. 9.1 |   Consequence Of Sound

    By and large, We got it from Here… has the classic Tribe sound: a warm and crisp confluence of East Coast hip-hop, jazz, and more, all mixed and mastered impeccably.

  6. 9.0 |   FasterLouder

    Thank You 4 Your Service sees A Tribe Called Quest revive what they do best, and beyond – bridging the gap between carefree and critical, classic and contemporary, timeless and topical, return and departure

  7. 9.0 |   Paste Magazine

    Phife gets the last laugh: a finale more jamming than Bowie’s, Prince’s and Cohen’s combined

  8. 8.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Quest were all about beats, rhymes and life, and this album has that in spades. They may have grown older but their wit and skill with the mic have not eroded

  11. 8.3 |   Pretty Much Amazing

    With each of Tribe’s albums up until now, it’s pointless to dissect it track by track when really, it should be taken as one, singular groove

  12. 8.3 |   A.V. Club

    It’s hard not to feel a flood of gratitude for the mere existence of this record
    Read Review

  13. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    For those who value Tribe’s contribution to music, this is a record to be grateful for
    Read Review

  14. 8.0 |   The Independent

    Despite the hiatus, this guest-laden double-album finds the group still very much engaged, rattling out tongue-twisting, articulate verbal flows dealing more with social realities than self-aggrandising brags and outlaw fantasies

  15. 8.0 |   The Irish Times

    There are guests galore in the engine room but the real pleasure principles come with the Tribe come on strong with righteous, hard-hitting tones

  16. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Ultimately it’s the original, immersive Tribe vibes that conquer all

  17. 8.0 |   Crack

    Best of all, Tribe have as much to say as they have engaging ways of saying it

  18. 8.0 |   Clash

    Thank you for your service, Tribe

  19. 8.0 |   The Observer

    Wriggling in on a live-sounding drum kit and a buzzing hook, We the People covers similar territory, tackling the divisiveness brought about by gentrification
    Read Review

  20. 8.0 |   Rolling Stone

    One of the most timeless rap groups ever has returned with a record that doesn't sound like 1996, but doesn't sound like 2016 either. It's imbued with the same feeling of "Push It Along" that they've had from the beginning

    Three decades after forming, A Tribe Called Quest use collaboration to create another timeless record, backed by lyrical content that belongs in today’s troubled times
