  1. Loads of fun dance songs and sexy pop numbers. [#9]
  2. Beautiful, fun, dark, sentimental, gloomy, hopeful music.
  3. Do the Bambi isn't a radical change from Stereo Total's previous work, but it is completely enjoyable from start to finish.
  4. All of the qualities that make Stereo Total so darn charming are all here.
  5. 70
    Addictive pop kitsch. [Apr 2005, p.99]
  6. 70
    Campy, kitschy but always cool. [Mar 2005, p.119]
  7. 70
    Any party mix could benefit from the crisp beats, blasts and riffs here, and just because Stereo Total's music is jubilant doesn't mean it's vapid. [#67, p.111]
  8. Do the Bambi proves that art rock can be both obvious and alien at the same time.
  9. This album, even more than their others, is like a cheap pinata: A lot of candies come out, and a few of them are bound to be stale yellowish things that don't taste like butterscotch.
  10. Imagine Manu Chao, Serge Gainsbourg and the Cars all caramelized together.
  11. You'll probably get annoyed after about 30 seconds. [May 2005, p.138]
  12. [Stereo Total] have neither the songs nor the art to make their electro-doodlings anything more than an exercise in narcissistic cool. [Apr 2005, p.124]
  13. Even if the lyrical content is supposed to be ironic, it's still pretty horrible.
  14. The fact that the middle of the album is easier to swallow than the beginning is not an indication of any real improvement, but a sign that you become habituated, or at least desensitized, to its utter lack of creativity or soul.
