    Such a disappointment. After the utterly brilliant "Love Kraft" this is just so poor. This and Ween's release might just be the most disappointing albums of 2007.

  1. The only shortcoming is how quickly it's all over. Roll on number nine.

    Hey Venus! is an attractive album with a broad appeal – Rough Trade wanted a pop record and got one--but it also feels like a missed opportunity, a consolidation of affairs rather than a step forward.
  3. No doubt fans’ll love it, but virgins shouldn’t expect to swoon at this end-of-the-pier jamming.
