  1. Galore makes for one of the most self-assured, strutting debuts in recent memory.
  2. Galore the band isn't as distinctive as its influences, and many of the album's songs are so polished and streamlined that there's little chance for Dragonette's personality to shine through. However, their more adventurous side surfaces on the album's second half.
  3. This sweet-and-sour debut that is more original than your average pop thing.
  4. On their charming debut, the four-piece fulfil their promise of being the edgy, sexually voracious Ace of Bass.

    With Gwen Stefani sidelined by motherhood, Canada's Dragonette fills the No Doubt void by walking a similar line between girly electro pop and boyish new wave.
  6. For the most part, however, this is an ultra-sugary album which leaves a strangely sour aftertaste - not a flavour the public seems too fond of.
  7. 40
    Galore sounds like the stock "empowering dance pop" library compilations that music publishers bombard film music supervisors with.
