  • Summary: This is the first new album for the UK act since 1992's 'Connected.'
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 13
  2. Negative: 0 out of 13
  1. This album is truly affecting -- it is an instant, irresistible, bounce-in-your-step morning cup of coffee of an album.
  2. 'Deep Down & Dirty' just reminds you how influential and important the Stereos were, and continue to be.
  3. 90
    Dirty might not have been worth the nine-year wait, but it's one of the finest and most colorful dance-oriented discs of the year.
  4. Worth the wait? Well, sort of. This is the sound of a band that has tired of its popular straitjacket ­ searching for something more real, more original, more cutting edge. But you can't forget what you've learned, can't retrace your steps or begin again afresh.
  5. 60
    If all you want to do is throw the same funky shapes you threw a decade ago, this long-awaited outing will more than suffice. Otherwise, it's the same old same old. [Jul 2001, p.114]
  6. But under the ill-fitting vocals, Deep Down & Dirty has some dubby, dark tracks that work if only because they don't try so hard to be "Connected" sequels. [Jul 2001, p.85]
  7. Sounding rusty before even seeing daylight, Deep Down & Dirty is as enticing as those other averagely pleasant 1992 albums currently taking up valuable drawer-space in the back room.
