  1. His pop smarts are sharp and bright, but never too flashy.... A very impressive debut.
  2. 80
    Sure, Pocket Radio is quirky... but that's what pop is about in the 21st century. [#50, p.94]
  3. 80
    While not weighty or moody or even all that original at times, you can say one thing: Leroy's Beck-cum-brit-pop at least knows how to entertain better than most of what Carl Craig's put out lately. [Jul 2001, p.82]
  4. There are a few key moments of guilty pleasure, and the overall aesthetic of the record is appealing on the surface. But underneath the scratchy record sounds and the canned Casiotones, Fountenberry hasn't got enough substance to sustain him for ten minutes, let alone the length of an entire album.
  5. A fresh, if unfocused, work saturated with zany personality.
  6. It might come off as too much of a mish-mash if not for the tongue-in-cheek glee with which Leroy pulls it off.
  7. 40
    Sets records for twee-ness. [Jun/Jul 2001, p.111]
