jyotirmayadAug 18, 2005Simply awesome! One of the 10 Best CDs of 2005 so far.
TerrenceOAug 24, 2005While far from flawless, and to be honest not particularly interesting Less Than Human is tons of danceable fun. And thats all it aims for. Unlike many of his DFA labelmates The Juan Maclean aims for pure floor pounding dance party inducing euphoric fun, which is why this album is (at least on initial listen) less of a let down than many other DFA releases have been.

Blast this on a saturday night in your loft with all your yuppie hipster friends like it was intended... I'll have to be content with listening to it on my head phones on my painfully long commute.… Expand

BrianSNov 8, 2005Im not really understanding why this album is getting such good reviews. Apart from "Every Little Thing" there is little of interest to be heard. The female vocals sound like a lazy Miss Kitten. The beats are nothing special. Similar to the DFA Compilations it is very hit and miss, with LCD Soundsystem clearly being the only major talent on this label. And i was sooo excited when buying this :(… Expand
WalterESep 14, 2005Just one brilliant song. Then nothing follows...
TimKAug 20, 2005This album stinks like a outhouse. Let's face it, even though we all want to love the synth, the sytnh sounds like poop.
