AllMusic Review by

The Athens, GA-based hip-hop quartet Deaf Judges (rappers Rorshak, Produceman, and Louie Larceny, plus turntablist Cubenza) have a relaxed rapport on their debut album, All Rise. Cubenza provides a dense background of beats and spoken clips (some making reference to the group's name, as typical lines heard in court are repeated), over which the rappers declaim their singsong doggerel in tag-team fashion. There are no choruses and little structure, and none of it adds up to very much. So far, the Beastie Boys have nothing to fear from Deaf Judges.
