"Scotland is not a prominent presence in the hip hop world, but after several listens to this record I am starting to think that might change"
- Rhyme Junkie
"Asthmatic Astronaut has assembled an absolute beast of an album; 19 MCs bring their A-game and a range of styles, while G proves that he is an absolutely virtuosic producer. From sun-drenched head-nodders to bass lines that would give Milanese nightmares, G holds the whole thing together beautifully; each track is individual and unique but flow together as a coherent whole"
- AL Maloney
"This Is Not Pop' is probably the most coherent collection of Scottish hip hop released in the last year. Due to the sheer number of emcees and styles on show, it's a project that could have easily gone pear-shaped. Credit is due to Asthmatic Astronaut for bringing together so many artists and making them work under the same umbrella. Is it a tad long? Perhaps, but there aren't any glaring skippers, which for an album of this type is remarkably impressive"
- Jonathan Rimmer
Listening to this and have to say its FUCKING awesome.
Not just one of the best hip hop albums to come out of Scotland but one of the best overall albums out of Scotland ever!
- SJ MELLIA
"It's a true crafted album that, in the age of digital format, seems rare and like a carefully curated mixtape it plays best from start to finish"
