  1. On Hands, musically she's great?at taking superstar glamour to the streets: It's megaclub gold for the broke-ass rest of us.
  2. For an album with crowded electro-pop instrumentation, the music isn't overbearing, and Little Boots' cheeky lyrics never lose any of their dry attitude.
  3. It’s the type of near-perfect, swooning synth-pop rush that Oakey was riding with the Human League in the ’80s.
  4. The vintage futurism that drapes Hesketh's songs has stayed in vogue, and there's fun to be had here.
  5. While her first full-length album, Hands, smacks of trying too hard (Hesketh skittishly rotated through several different producers, and the sound is all over the map), most of the songs are imminently playable on their own terms.
  6. What the Brit singer does have is a bunch of shiny, propulsive electro-pop songs.
  7. Her debut album, indeed, is something of a mess, the sense being of an artist trying to run before she can walk. [Jul 2009, p.123]
