'Things Change is The Square Egg's third and best album -- in fact, the crew's third album in the stretch of a single year -- a more stridently social and political effort with a wildly adventurous sound! The Square Egg is just about the most individualistic projects you'll find in the Nusoul underground -- featuring spoken, rhymed, and word jazz vocals by Lee -- with laid back support by a revolving cast on beat programming, Fender Rhodes, soul jazz guitar, bass and drums, horns, and occasional cuts and scratches. It's a tough sound to pin down, with the spoken word interludes, jazzy vocal numbers and righteous rhymes -- but one that's cleverly steeped in disparate influences that still manage to sit well together. So many ambitious underground artists try to meld influences from De La Soul to Herbie Hancock, from the Last Poets to the Black Rock Coalition, together in the same stylistic frappe and fail miserably. The Square Egg pulls it off, and richly deserve a little bit of attention for the effort!' - Dusty Groove America (April 2005)
