  1. 8.3 |   A.V. Club

    Moosebumps won’t replace anyone’s copy of Dr. Octagonecologyst, but it’s a worthy addendum to the story

  2. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Dr. Octagon is still one of a kind. Print edition only

  3. 7.2 |   Earbuddy

    He still possesses the same skill as in his youth. It makes for a performance that’s more about the rapper’s voice as an instrument than putting worth in what he’s saying

  4. 7.0 |   All Music

    It's an impressive effort, and worth checking out if you're already a fan, but newcomers absolutely need to hear the original first

  5. 6.7 |   Pitchfork

    With some modern flourishes, Kool Keith, Dan the Automator, and DJ QBert reconvene mostly for a boom-bap throwback to the ill and the grotesque style of their first 1996 outing

  6. 6.4 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    Maybe hip-hop is a young man’s game, but Octagon is a nice change of pace from the trap beats and MCs too young to buy alcohol that is dominating the mainstream right now

  9. 6.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    A new Dr. Octagon album in 2018 can be read as an artistic defeat

  10. 6.0 |   The Skinny

    Give it a little bit of time though, and Moosebumps is often a worthy and vivid expansion of the Dr. Octagon mythos

  11. 3.0 |   The Music

    Is the quality of the music good enough to ignore the distasteful other stuff?
