    Diploid probably has some ace songs, but you'll need an industrial belt sander to uncover them. [No. 109, p.55]

    Dalle's first record under her own name recalibrates bravely.

    It’s an admirable attempt at maturity, but Diploid Love drains the energy from Dalle's music, along with its heart.

    Dalle sounds as if she’s on autopilot for much of Diploid Love; she’s obviously got talent to spare, but she’ll need to provide herself with a sterner challenge than she has here if she’s to truly capitalise on it.

    Diploid Love doesn’t suck, but neither is it revolutionary.

    Dalle’s return performance, no matter how energetic and strong musically, lacks the lyrical details to latch onto.

    A decent rock album that has a few fine tracks with great vocals and guitar work, and other okay ones that didn't catch my attention in anyA decent rock album that has a few fine tracks with great vocals and guitar work, and other okay ones that didn't catch my attention in any special way.

    My favorite tracks are "Meet The Foetus/Oh The Joy", "Carry On", and "Underworld".
