    Each song here is crammed with all kinds of Kool & the Gang hand claps and Chemical Brothers bass drops. [Dec 2003, p.218]
  2. A naggingly problematic record, with a void at its heart that no amount of cool celebrity mates can quite conceal.
  3. Struggles to offer the same level of excitement that previous Jaxx albums provided.

    Lacking the fun of Remedy and Rooty, this album sets out to disappoint longtime fans for better or worse.

Although the songs in general are great, few songs are distinctive and many feel like filler. Very well-thought out filler.

    That being said, there's very much to love on Kish Kash - the powerful vocals in Good Luck, the sleek style of Right Here's The Spot, the wild experimentation on Lucky Star, the fun of Supersonic and the ultra-catchy tune Plug It In. Although it sags in the second half, it's still a must listen.

    Basement Jaxx go for the next level: awersome , danceable post punk electronica and romatic beats doing the background...
