    This mass-market music deserves more than a minority audience. [Feb 2006, p.75]
  2. A smart, exuberant and very real record, whose reach has nothing to do with "authenticity".
  3. If you've been pining for a fresh take on the libidinous funk of yesteryear, or looking to go back to prurient, carefree days of teenage infatuation, the National Trust is for you, ooo, ooo, yeahhhhhhh.
  4. This album is covered from head to toe in a cuticle of stylish crap. Underneath, fortunately, there are several redeeming gems. [21 Jan 2006, p.35]
  5. They are trying very hard to be a specific thing, realize that they can't quite take it all the way, and add the occasional coating of camp in order to look less silly.
  6. Clearly, these boys can't grasp the concept of "say when."
  7. More like faithful reiterations of soul cliches than anything fresh or interesting, nearly every track will remind you of someone else.
