AllMusic Review by Bret Love
It's no coincidence that this artist's name is Kwest: Like obvious stylistic influence A Tribe Called Quest, This Is My First Album features jazzy samples, respectable lyrical prowess, and a unique flavor that lends itself to the "alt-rap" tag. But that's where the similarities end, as this jokester is more interested in sex, spliffs, and serious silliness than progressive social consciousness. It's an approach that suits his style well, establishing Kwest as a consummate entertainer who'll go to almost any length to get attention. Though at times his earnest eagerness to win the listener's affections can grow mildly annoying, the rapper's charm, wit, and keen sense of the absurd makes his style ultimately ingratiating.
