  • Summary: A side project for Matmos' Drew Daniel, The Soft Pink Truth here offers (in their own, unique way) a variety of punk covers, including songs by the Angry Samoans, Minor Threat and Die Kreuzen.

    Daniel's bump-and-grind synth lines are all campy humor. [Mar 2005, p.92]
  2. 90
    Nasty and raw. [Jan/Feb 2005, p.97]
  3. One of this year's most remarkable "punk" albums.
  4. It’s a highly idiosyncratic album that very few will appreciate every facet of. However, even with a very minimal knowledge of the source material, there’s much to love.
  5. None of the new album reaches the gaudy peaks of Do You Party?, but it bumps just as well through subtle atmospheres and strange detours.
  6. As an exercise in hubris and chutzpah it's a rather fascinating affair.
  7. Our quality of life would instantly improve if this disc didn't exist. [Feb 2005, p.94]
