    Live at the Gluepot is a crucially important document for fans of New Zealand's fabled indie pop heyday, but anyone who likes good, heavily snarky rock & roll will appreciate this recording of Toy Love going out in a blaze of glory.

    Live at the Gluepot is more immediately impressive [than the new compilation], just in terms of sheer speed and momentum.

    Live at the Gluepot is a great addition to the band’s back-catalogue.

    With Knox as a lighthearted master of ceremonies, it's a rousing, worthy period piece. [Jan-Feb 2013, p.93]
