    If you look up overrated in the dictionary you'll see this album cover. There are no real songs on this album and very few of the grooves have any soul to them whatsoever. And what kind of "pointed" lyrics are reviewers talking about. Namechecking Bush and Blair amidst the gobbledygook does not make !!! the new Clash for pete's sake. They are not even the new BAD.

    Resolutely bottom-heavy and abstract. [#7, p.73]
  2. !!! has put together an end-to-end burner here, full of songs that will move your ass and stick in your ear for weeks.
  3. Uncut

    It's exuberant dorkiness, as well as fluidity of playing, that makes !!! stand out. [Jul 2004, p.106]
