    Catchy, easily danceable, and consistently engaging, the album has arguably few stale moments. [Jun 2012, p.152]

    It only fails in that its broad pallete means when Mondo is good, it can be very good. When it fails to hit the mark however, it's pretty average fare.

    Mondo serves as much as an introduction to a promising new as it does a reminder of a major producing talent.
