    Is the album good? Yes. Is it Hot Hot Heat good? No. They sound more like The Killers, than a band with a lead singer who jumps about the lyrics at such a fun and fast pace that it is sometimes hard to understand what is being sung. Sadly, in this album I understand all the words.

  1. The result is a muddled album that gets even farther away from Hot Hot Heat's former glory even as it tries to recapture it.

    It's still a blast to listen to Hot Hot Heat when they sound like they're having fun, even if they have to fake it. [Sep/Oct 2007, p.169]
  3. The disco-rock jitters come back soon enough with the next selection, 'Let Me In,' but there's no denying that the group's horizons have broadened. For every throwback Cure sound-alike, such as 'Give Up?,' there's a lush retort featuring the Abbey Road Orchestra-like 'Outta Heart.'
