    good album, on a par with NAD as their best since marchin already. Gods world and have you got the right are up there with their best work.

    Great album if only more people bothered to buy it rather then asking wether they were still around.

  1. While they offer few surprises on Hyperactive, they also offer no embarassments, and it's likely that any fan still faithfully buying records nearly a decade after Moseley Shoals will enjoy this record.

    Sound[s] pretty much the same as they did a decade ago. [19 Mar 2005, p.59]
  3. I've rooted for these guys because they nearly achieve that fine mix between tackiness and genius perfected by bands like T. Rex and the Darkness. Unfortunately, I can only give them points for effort.
