“‘Mutations’ is outstanding, emanating a persuasive hip hop melody, stellar rapping and a pulsating rhythm thick on the bottom end. In short, “Mutations” is yazum! If it’s indicative of what’s coming from Grand Analog on Survival, then I can’t wait for January 26.” – Huffington Post
“The combination of Grand Analog’s Odario Williams and De La Soul’s Posdnuos over this spacey beat is enough to entice anyone with a knowledge of Hip Hop’s history…Both rappers dance over the beat, spitting bars about the changing world they find themselves in, and do so with a style that any fan of the genre can bump.” – Earmilk
“Grand Analog has refined the fusion of their live band aesthetic and straight up hip-hop approach into a satisfying, cohesive synthesis.” – Exclaim!
