  • Summary: The first album by Yo La Tengo under the Condo Fucks band name.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 12 out of 16
  2. Negative: 0 out of 16
  1. As much as I'm looking forward to the next one from Ira, Georgia, and James proper, it's gonna have to work awfully hard to match the effortless blast that is Fuckbook.
  2. It’s clumsy, cheap, loud, fast and endlessly re-playable.
  3. Fuckbook is a fantastic, energy-fuelled riot of an album and--if you wish to view it as such--yet another brilliant addition to the embarrassment of riches that is the collected works of Yo La Tengo.
  4. These sparse, unfastened and more importantly, exuberant covers are all flash and no substance. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t specially well done and loads of fun, either.
  5. In the end, Fuckbook is a disappointing Yo La Tengo album, but the band’s made it clear that it doesn’t want it to be that, instead just a pretty good Condo Fucks record.

    That spirit of garageland spontaneity pervades Fuckbook. [Apr 2009, p.84]
  7. 50
    The pseudonym and title (a wink to Yo La's mostly-covers Fakebook) indicate how this lark, with oft-inaudible vocals, is meant to be held up against the band's canon.
