Please take into consideration when reading this review that HipHopHotSpot.Com put together this release.
“The neck snapping beat on “Ridiculous Junk” ushers in the entrance of Red Cloud, Braille, Mr Tru, Man Of War, and Gibraan for a frenzied posse cut. This is straight up illness – each emcee blazes the mic, and the beat is just bananas. Special props to Gibraan who comes through with an early contender for verse of the year.
“Urban Camper” by Vandal caught my attention due to the “Rakim-ness” of the emcee. The beat is a simple but effective composition that serves only to highlight the skills of Vandal on the mic, and I was definitely feeling the cuts on the chorus. Elsewhere, Coleon’s “Squanderin'” with its cinematic feel, and the lively closing instrumental cut “Relaxed” by DJ Earl-E and Tack-Fu also had me reaching for the back button to check ’em out again.
Standout cut on the whole compilation? That award goes to Storm The Unpredictable’s “Darker The Berry”. I don’t even need to say any more, the words speak for themselves…
Go and pick this up.”” – AltRap.Com
“Whew… I’m exhausted. Good underground hip-hop does that to me. 80 minutes of the best shit you’ve never heard.” – AddReviews.Com
“80 minutes, 22 tracks, no filler -unreal!” – Audionet.CC
“AberFoyle Springs is just what the cover says, “Refreshing Underground Flavor.””
“Swindle Entertainment’s Rok 1 opens the album up with fresh, hard-hitting battle lyrics over a beat made by none other than DJ Swindle on Clear The Building. Dutchmassive, Celph Titled, and Walkmen tear up shop on Fallout which sports Illmatic style production by the Rubix Cuban himself, and each MC slam ill lyrics down. The track is truly enjoyable.”
“don’t get the impression that any of the songs are second-rate, because you won’t find any filler tracks. Check out HipHopHotSpot.com and find out how to get your hands on this. It’s worth the low price.”

“This compilation is everything you expect from a hip hop disc and more. There is 80 minutes of music, with no filler material. I’m talking no stupid skits, no MC’s phoning a rhyme in, and no beat loops that get you sick of the beat before the song even starts”
“What I think AberFoyle Springs does best is demonstrate the power Hip Hop can have unified. Artists are weighing in from New York to Iowa to Canada”
