AllMusic Review by

The turntablist occupation of beatboxing is the equivalent of sparring except with two turntables and an arsenal of scratching and spinbacks instead of jabs and fakes. The five-man Australian hip-hop group known as Metabass come on very similar to their comrades in the Northern Hemisphere, possessing a similar style to the Roots but with more emphasis on ragga and turntablist skills. Highlighted by the single "Possession," Life and Times of a Beatboxer is a solid album of left-field hip-hop and a positive departure for the increasingly turntablist Bomb Hip-Hop label.
