  • Summary: Already being heralded as 2003's version of The Streets, the suburban London duo who compose the Audio Bullys combine everything from punk, ska, new wave, and house on this debut.

  1. Busting out of car speakers on hot London streets this summer, 'Ego War' is gonna make you think that, finally, we've got a Brit band worth adoring.

    The most inspired batch of caffeine-fueled and jumped-up party favors you'll hear all year. [#104, p.95]
  3. Even if their big 'n' bashy brand of party-happy tech-hop gets a bit familiar by album's end, it's destined to be a staple of 2003's party mixes.
  4. Some of the sharpest beats and catchiest tunes ever to grace a dance LP. [Jun 2003, p.93]
  5. Over 13 tracks, not one a filler, they mix everything from punk to electro, house and disco, and end up like a delirious collision of the Specials and Basement Jaxx.
  6. They're no Basement Jaxx, and it's easy to hope for someone with more professional skills to come fill in the Audio Bullys' blueprints.
  7. The vast bulk of this album is the sort of stuff you'd expect from an averagely talented bunch of first year music students. Who smoke way, way, way too much dope.

    The best part of this album isn't even on the album. The Switch remix kills!
