Montreal Gazette:
"[Boots Riley] is a consummately charismatic front man, establishing his as one of the best live rap acts going, after Philadelphia untouchables the Roots."

Austin American-Statesman:
"The Coup isn't a rock 'n' roll band. It's a hip-hop band. But they are a miracle of everyday life and proved it at Emo's on Saturday night. I have no idea when the Coup turned into one of the best bands on the planet, but here we are."

Salt Lake Tribune:
"The Coup now rules my world... possibly the best show I've seen this year... Riley is one magnetic frontman. If The Coup come back, don't miss the show."

Orange County Register:
"...after this tremendous breakthrough set [Coachella Festival], I can't imagine the Coup will remain hip-hop's best kept secret anymore."

SmokingSection.com:
"Every time I see them they rock progressively harder...the whole house [was] going buck, even the cranky-ass security guard...crazy stage presence."

San Jose Mercury/ Oakland Tribune:
"It's still early, but I'd be surprised if I see anything at Outside Lands that impresses me more than the Coup's set. It's always the same deal with this East Bay troupe, led by genius rapper Boots Riley. Whether they are playing Coachella or Rock the Bells or, now, Outside, they always seem to outshine the competition."

Pitchfork.com:
"Silk E sings and struts like Tina Turner raised on hip-hop."

Los Angeles Times:
"Considerable musical chops... The Coup throws one fine party."

Punknews.com:
"Incendiary... live instrumentation to challenge even the wildest rock music."


About The Coup's "Pick A Bigger Weapon":

"#1 Album of the Year"
-- Associated Press

"#2 Album of the Year"
-- Murder Dog

"#7 Album of the Year"
-- Chicago Tribune

"#8 Album of the Year"
-- The Onion AV Club

"#9 Album of the Year"
-- Washington Post

Billboard says, " The Coup is the best hip-hop act of the past decade."

XXL says, "... the bigger weapon referred to in the album's title is the increasingly sophisticated live funk that oozes out of these grooves."

Village Voice says, "Fact is, the brother's some writer... His lesser songs would be dookie gold on an ordinary undie-rap album Their low-slung rhythms imagine what might have happened if Reagan-era Prince had been less into getting some action and more into kicking up some activism, or if P-Funk had dabbled in politics, as well as psychedelics."

Rolling Stone says, "Riley's rhymes work so well because they're more about real life than rhetoric... it's
the rare record that makes revolution sound like hot fun on a Saturday night."

PopMatters.com says, "The weapons The Coup use are wit, frankness, storytelling, poetry, smooth soul music and raw funk... Musically this is the sexiest Coup album yet."
