  1. Q Magazine

    [Falls] between the arch electronic vistas of later Magazine and skewed, Giorgio Moroder-esque avant-pop. [Feb 2002, p.114]
  2. ShelleyDevoto is obviously having a blast, and while Buzzkunst is no thundering masterpiece, the blast is not at listeners' expense.
  3. Mixer
    60
    This record is neat and all, but Buzzkunst doesn't add to the collective legacy of Shelley and Devoto. [June 2002, p.88]
  4. While the pair probably had a lot of fun making the record, unfortunately, it isn't the most enjoyable listen.
  5. An uneven collection of synthesized experimentation that relies too heavily on familiar and cliched electronic tricks to sound original.
  6. There wouldn't be a problem at all if Buzzkunst wasn't such a maddeningly forgettable record.
