  1. Underscores that the band still has more vitality and ideas than most other artists associated with that [electroclash] trend ever did.
  2. One big loud glam rock electro-pop explosion of an album.
  3. 78
    Their funk-electro-industrial-art-pop-noise is so tight, you might forget that they began life as a Munich art school project. [#13, p.97]
  4. The Chicks on Speed brand of girl power won't scare a Geri Halliwell fan, but their chatty cynicism might make them question their ideals.
  5. 60
    Picture a protest of the World Trade Organization led by Bananarama. [Nov 2004, p.131]
  6. It's funny and smart and a little annoying in large doses.
  7. 40
    The whole act is a gimmick, for sure, and one that wears itself thin awfully quick. [Nov 2004, p.98]

    While the album may be abrasive at first, further listening becomes addictive.
