  1. Even though there are no radical changes here, Gimmie Trouble sounds more like Adult. sharpening its edges than running in place.
  2. There is vintage new wave rawness and goth-inflected bounce all over this thing, and it manages to leave this band in fresh-sounding territory that's somehow miles away from most everything today's "new wave revivalists" and/or "electro-punks" have even thought about trying.
  3. Gimmie Trouble reminds us that Adult. don't sound like anyone else... Not even themselves.
  4. 70
    Fans of Fad Gadget and Add N To (X) take note. [Nov 2005, p.108]
  5. The punk dominates more than it ever did on its electro-tilted predecessors.
  6. Samey and inaccessible in parts. [5 Nov 2005, p.43]
  7. If music is best judged by its immediate effect on the listener, this record succeeds and cannot be forgotten. In this case, that's not a good thing.
