  1. A masterful bricolage that revisits the crossroads of early-'80s clubland without ever settling for cheap pastiche.
  2. 90
    Might already have an inside shot to be the best record of 2002 here in the states.
  3. 90
    The work of a genuine individualist. [Aug 2001, p.108]
  4. 80
    An intentionally ludicrous Eurotrash concept album about the sweet life. [Apr/May 2002, p.113]
  5. 80
    Instead of just blowing the dust off of relics from his childhood closet, he's embraced the neon ehtos of the era and produced and actual New Wave album that still sounds eerily contemporary. [#90, p.118]
  6. Suggests Kraftwerk crashing a party at the Playboy Mansion.
  7. Kittenz and Thee Glitz is Housecat watered down by trivia and outside egos.
