AllMusic writer Steve Huey called it "a slight improvement" over her debut record Funkdafied, praising Dupri's beats for going into an "early-'80s urban funk direction" and Da Brat's lyricism being bereft of any "old-school quotes and obvious Snoop Dogg bites" and having more of a focused identity, concluding that, "[I]t's another brief album, but Anuthatantrum does show Da Brat making subtle progress, and Dupri's production is inviting once again."[1] J. D. Considine, writing for Entertainment Weekly, gave credit to the "funky foundation of [Jermaine] Dupri's tuneful, efficient backing tracks" for making Da Brat's "bluster than menace" gangster boasts come across as more tolerable.[3] Martin Johnson of the Chicago Tribune wrote that: "On her debut recording, her flow worked solely with basic George Clinton samples, but on the follow-up she rhymes in a variety of styles and her vocabulary has improved. Sadly, these skills are wasted on narrow and cliched subject matter, such as people who don't like her and people who don't respect her."[2]
