Critical reception

Dominic Umile of Prefix gave the album a 7 out of 10, saying, "Coup de Theatre, the second course, parts the sea of mediocre major-label nonsense with refreshingly mixed backgrounds and introspective, melodious and often humorous verse."[3] Steve Juon of gave the album an 8 out of 10, saying: "With so many things going for Haiku D'Etat, it's almost hard to find fault with this album."[4]

Gabe Meline of Metro Silicon Valley named it one of the best hip hop albums of 2004.[5] Jeff Ryce of HipHopDX included it on the "Independent Albums of the Year" list.[6]
