    Ha Ha Sound is the sort of album that will sweetly move you towards slumber. [#23, p.82]
  2. Every note, every lyric, is perfect.
  3. Juggles multiple ideas of modernism with unusual grace and success. [#234, p.53]
  4. HaHa Sound is a good example what a talented band can do in an era of infinite possibilities.
  5. Haha Sound may not be Broadcast's most superficially perfect album, but it's a more challenging and exciting one because of its deliberate imperfections.
  6. 90
    In a world supersaturated with electronica, Broadcast are nonetheless bold, rare and crucial. [Sep 2003, p.97]
  7. While all of the sounds that made their debut so compelling are in place here, Broadcast has also branched out, employing a looser approach to strong structure.
  8. Trish Keenan's woozy vocals conjure cloudy dreamscapes, and the music will leave you feeling vaguely fashionable, the same way that Stereolab's sophisticated synth work does. [15 Aug 2003, p.76]
  9. An enveloping, mysterious record that marries the idealism of "the future of tomorrow today" to the stark reality of the post-millennial present and finds beauty and fascination in the tussle between melody and rhythm.
