    It's insular stuff, but because they think like hipster Stockhausens and always keep things moving, Out Hud's indie disco is exciting where Tortoise's indie jazz was merely annoying. [24 Mar 2005, p.79]

    It's unfortunate that the weedy vocals dilute some of its impact, otherwise this would be a triumph. [Apr 2005, p.89]

    Like LCD [Soundsystem], Out Hud spice up electronic grooves with lithe basslines and post-punk guitars, albeit with less finesse. [Apr 2005, p.123]
  4. Let Us Never Speak of it Again is bor-ing.
  5. Unfortunately, Let Us Never Speak Of It Again barely registers any of the emotion or punch of the debut and, worst of all, goes ahead and adds positively dreadful lyrics to nearly all the songs.
  6. Alternative Press

    Sounds anemic. [May 2005, p.138]
