  1. The album largely treads the same brazen minimal-electro territory; and most of the dick/tits/cunt-centric songs will be familiar for anyone who's seen Peaches' girlie-show shows in full-frontal effect over the past couple years.

    Unfortunately, the tinny stutters and retro keyboards... drag when they're not amped up on desire. [Dec 2003, p.158]
  3. Peaches seems to intentionally drop the ball throughout Fatherfucker.
  4. Ultimately this album is neither the triumph or the disaster that it could've been.
  5. Quite a few tracks simultaneously lack subtlety and boldness, reverting to the kind of scatological shock bag you might expect from a third-rate performance artist.
  6. Nearly all of Fatherfucker falls back into ostensibly bracing anthems that sound plain stupid in such abundance.
  7. Where Teaches was brash, Fatherfucker is dim; where Teaches was shocking in its gender-bending, sexually charged language, Fatherfucker is bland, repetitive and obvious in its attempts to turn standard conventions upside down.
