  • Summary: Forget the Chemical Brothers; British producer/DJs Dan and John Kahuna really are brothers, and this, their debut LP, plays like a tour of electronica, venturing from electro to disco to acid to downtempo.

  1. Positive: 12 out of 15

  1. If, 18 minutes into this album, you are not ready to proclaim these two London-via-Leeds hedonists the most exciting thing in dance music, you need your feet examined.
  2. It's truly great stuff. The future is, apparently, now.
  3. FC Kahuna have aimed scandalously high with this record, and they've not been found wanting.
  4. Machine Says Yes throbs like vintage acid house, but they've given it a cosmetic makeover for the millennium.

    A really freaky, fun ride into eclectism. [Nov 2002, p.94]
  6. 70
    Riding a delicate balance of acid house and electro, Machine Says Yes is as cold as it is hot. [Dec 2002, p.76]
  7. The bulk of Machine Says Yes draws heavily on the rhythms and studio techniques of FC Kahuna's big beat roots, and garnishes them vigorously with the robotic female vocals and canned electro beats of Ladytron or Peaches; it gets old faster than Wesley Willis.
