    A most pleasurable guilty pleasure.
  2. Gleeful, glorious, and utterly unique.
  3. 80
    Their hedonistic sex-dance anthems go down a treat. [Apr 2003, p.103]
  4. By not being "smart" enough to subdivide their appreciation of pop into a series of echo chambers, Junior Senior comes close to recapturing the preteen joy of responding to music unhindered by stigma.
  5. [Sounds] as much like playful garage-rock as cocky Europop.
  6. Junior Senior plays pop music, pure and simple, and the abundant joys on D-D-Don't should make even the most hopeless cynic reevaluate priorities that don't allow for pop's fleeting glories.
  7. These Danes aren't tuned-in enough for stereotype play.

    Absolutely brilliant, an essential record. This is dance music for people who don't care too much for dance music.

    It's like a huge, great
    grin on CD. Expand
