AllMusic Review by David Jeffries

The sparse first-class riddim features a pause as one of its main attractors. The beat is chaotic but it's the stutter that really makes it happen. Elephant Man is clued in with his great "Pause" and T.O.K. give an infectious chant on their "Badmine." Riddim Rider, Vol. 16: First Class is infectious but simple enough to stay out of the way of the singer. Luckily, almost all of the toasting on the album is inspired, making this one of the better riddim albums out there.
