    He's at the peak of his game
    Read Review

  7. 7.5 |   Pitchfork

    Wiley wasn't always the slickest-flowing rapper, but if there's one part of his game that's really stepped up, it's his relationship with his own beats
    Read Review

  8. 7.0 |   DIY

    First single ‘Numbers in Action’ is a masterclass in rhythmic delivery over irrepressibly bouncing beats
    Read Review

    Wiley remains one of the UK’s compelling showmen
    Read Review

  13. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    Cowie’s astute wordplay and knack for a strong, hooky beat continue to be blanked by the masses despite the fun to be had on Your Intuition and To Be Continued
    Read Review

  14. 6.0 |   The Skinny

    The highlights are equal to his best tracks from his 2004 debut and 2007's Playtime Is Over, but some of the more commercial experiments fail to pay off
    Read Review

  15. 6.0 |   AU Review

    Whilst part-timers like Dizzee Rascal and Chipmunk bask in the hollow glow of showbiz, Wiley – illuminated only by the sodium vapour glare of the streets – is keeping it real
    Read Review

  16. 6.0 |   PopMatters

    Going boldly independent to make a record that sounds suspiciously like his label-affiliated albums
    Read Review

    Isn’t anything like the masterpiece it has the potential to be
    Read Review
