Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If you like the music, you will appreciate Mr. Kell's attention to it, and relish the on-camera presence of legends like Kool Herc and Afrika Bambaataa. But '5 Sides of a Coin' will make your head nod more than it makes your eyes widen or your ears pop."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"Kell doesn't stay on any of these subjects long enough to score more than a tasty, semi-obscure factoid or two from each."
‑ Steve Schneider, Orlando Weekly
"This survey is a well-meaning Nickelodeon pep rally."
‑ Laura Sinagra, Village Voice
"A decent enough intro to the music many of us spend our time avoiding."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
