  1. 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.
  2. Even though there are no radical changes here, Gimmie Trouble sounds more like Adult. sharpening its edges than running in place.

    Gimmie Trouble: cyber funk or cyborg punk? [#70, p.86]
  4. [Their] best album. [Nov 2005, p.224]
  5. The punk dominates more than it ever did on its electro-tilted predecessors.
  6. There's no let up in Kuperus' constant yelps around the difficult end of her vocal range, and it's this that, ultimately, lets 'Gimmie Trouble' down and disappointingly makes this otherwise excellent Adult. album feel rather indulgent and immature.
  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.
