  1. More fun than most of the original NYC no-wave bands to which the Seconds pay tribute. [May 2006, p.178]
  2. Kratitude is dense, urgent and filled with inherent contradictions.
  3. It's less catchy than 2001's "Y", yet more immediate and hyperactive.
  4. Their sound is as alien and devoid of color as a moonscape, yet for all that, intermittently powerful.
  5. 60
    It's frequently chaotic, but instruments occasionally coalesce into unusual, oddly beautiful forms. [Jun 2006, p.112]
  6. While it’s not bad per say, it is certainly lacking in spark.
  7. The tracks are disaffected exercises in barren repetition and arrhythmic progressions that feel truly tossed off (improvised would be an insult to people who are actually accomplished at that) and indulgently "arty" in the worst sense of the word.
