Uppers and downers

Some of J's best tunes on here, but there are some hip hop travesties mixed in as well, unfortunately. The theme of rapping over jazz works nicely in most cases, though it drifts into slightly embarrassing cheesiness on a few tracks (e.g. Nights Like These, Travelling Music). Best tracks for me are Satisfied, MCee, Stir of Echoes, Do That Shit, 3 Out of 7.

Lyrical perfection

Hip hop heads rejoice. This album is classic. I especially dig the first 5 tracks. Forgot how bad the Bush years were? Check out "Satified?" (from back in '02 nonetheless) It still gives me goosebumps.

They Say All Music Guide

East Coast underground rap at its finest, All of the Above showcases why J-Live is so beloved by fans of literate, well-mannered hip-hop. The focus here is on lyrics, through and through, and J-Live indeed serves up a linguistic feast for astute listeners. The pretensions of All of the Above — from its Coltrane-esque cover art, to J-Live’s disdain for commercial-minded rappers, to his thoughtful liner notes — might turn off some listeners, particularly those less discerning ones who don’t share his high-mindedness. But that’s why All of the Above is an underground release: it’s an album for a select audience that prefers intellect and understated beats over bombast, boasting, booty, and bluntedness. – Jason Birchmeier
