“If there was ever an overlooked classic from the 90's hip-hop albums, Breaking Atoms takes the cake. Main Source comprised of Toronto's Sir Scratch and K-Cut, and New York's very own Large Professor. Keen hip-hop fans would know the Professor as being one of the most essential producers during the golden age of hip-hop, co-producing legendary records such as Nas' "Illmatic" and Pete Rock and CL Smooth's "Mecca and the Soul Brother". But on this record, he's only 18 and at his best, giving an excellent lyrical performance throughout the album and, of course, contributing stellar production.

Breaking Atoms was produced mostly using the E-mu SP-1200, a sampling machine used widely during the golden era of hip-hop, and its presence is felt throughout the record, with the many fat, gritty beats, funky bass melodies and ambient jazz and soul samples. The Professor thought deeply about each song's structure, focusing not solely on each track's loop, break, and hook, but juggled each idea in unison, resulting in an album dripping with sonic richness and grandeur.” – Sputnik Music
