  1. They're trapped by this, their one-trick shtick; it the same old song, played again, Sam, for all those girls in white belts who won't stop 'til they get enough.
  2. For all its impressive competency, Anxiety Always remains a bit too oppressively literal in its electro resurrection.

    Adult. deserve respect if only for making an almost overwhelmingly vicious album that succeeds on its own unreasonable terms. [May 2003, p.102]

    It's almost as much fun as 1981! [May 2003, p.114]

    Lies and Elegance walking arm in arm! Feverish vocals laced with the divine decadence of an original sound.
