New York Observer
Robert Glasper’s Irresistible AppealWill there be a Black Radio 3? I’m not sure. I’m not trying to be like Rocky. […]

Clashmusic
Overall though, this sequel falls just short of the original. ‘Black Radio 2’ is more triumphant sounding than its predecessor, but these songs aren’t as dynamic. The Experiment shines best when they’re ambitiousand when singer Casey Benjamin has a prominent vocal role. […]

allmusic
Taken as a whole, however, it serves and fulfills the role of a sequel: the album deepens the band’s music-making aestheticand further establishes their sound not only as a signature, but even, perhaps, as its own genre. […]
