  • Summary: This is the debut album for the Florida-based electronic-pop duo of Ben Cooper and Alex Kane.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 7
  2. Negative: 0 out of 7
  1. It's anything but a lo-fi vanity project. [Mar 2006, p.138]
  2. A pretty percolating electro-pop record that embraces sweetness and strangeness in equal measure.
  3. Generally good but occasionally uneven.
  4. The biggest hitch is that Electric President seemingly achieve all of their humble goals by mid-album, and so spend almost half their time with pencils down, repeating the day's assignments silently to themselves.
  5. Arriving somewhere between the newer work of Styrofoam (on Morr) and The Postal Service, Electric President mainly dabbles in melancholy-tinged tracks with a couple bursts distributed through the album for good measure.
  6. Not quite poppy and not quite moody, there's just not enough feeling in any direction to really make it stick.
  7. Everything about the album seems so careful, from the presentation to the songs themselves.
