  1. The four humanist protest songs she rolls out just before an unnecessarily dreamy closer seem so unforced you feel for all those who have striven so hard to do nothing more. Ari, Viv, Exene‑-because sisterhood is powerful, this one's for you.
  2. Apr 25, 2011
    2011 may reward us with releases that are just as bright, witty, and engaging as Generation Indigo, but it is unlikely that someone as singular as Styrene will be behind them.
  3. Apr 20, 2011
    Her street-smart squeak and plastic-fantastic perspective are undimmed, now buoyed by a heartfelt bene-ficence.
  4. May 9, 2011
    With every manifesto being tempered by a transforming mantra, Generation Indigo is quintessential Styrene.
  5. May 23, 2011
    She left behind this life-force of a new album (recorded before learning she had the disease), full of sharp, buoyant reggae and synth-rock that's true to her personal-is-political vision.
  6. Uncut
    Apr 20, 2011
    An album that bounces airly between teen pop sublime and the aging rebel ridiculous. [Apr 2011, p.95]
  7. Q Magazine
    Apr 22, 2011
    It's DIY-spirited, non-conformist and humourous, making this punk-war veteran's return a flavoursome treat. [Apr 2011, p.109]
