    Entertainment resurrects the group. Their music disconnects, only to connect again.
  2. However modern our world, Fischerspooner continues to give us a reason to listen. [Jun 2009, p.111]
  3. 2009's Entertainment finds the duo reverting somewhat to their more flamboyant origins while still trying to stay current. It's a divergent approach that fortunately works more for the record than against it.
  4. If you have a disdain for pretentious artistes but are looking to dance your ass off while imbibing delicious pop hooks and mostly simple though by no means run-of-the-mill pop lyrics, then just hold your nose and let yourself go.
  5. Entertainment, though, sounds tame by anyone's standards; and by eschewing their seedy, sweaty origins in favour of clean-cut pop, they've dumped those elements of their act which made them unique in the first place.
  6. So Entertainment might be music for their performances, it might be for others' dance performances, but it's not for the dance floor.
  7. The brashness of the band's seminal debut is gone, and what's left is a band that seems to have rushed an album out only in order to get back on stage to try to make it interesting. [Spring 2009, p.79]
