    Staying true to an Underworld-influenced formula of riff-punctuated house music will inspire new converts to the menagerie, as this record's grooves are simultaneously original and accessible.

    Music Kills Me occasionally drifts into the overly familiar world of laid-back jazz grooves, Latino rhythms and flutes, but there's enough elsewhere to intrigue. [Apr 2002, p.120]
  3. Rinocerose's specialty is dropping an army of scratchy, shrieking guitars into the dumbed-down world of modern disco.
  4. The album bubbles with climatic ambiance and sophisticated grooves.
  5. Alternative Press

    What could have been a second coming of Stone Roses or even a newer New Order comes off like one big Spiritualized remix, light on the hooks, numbed by its own beats. [Apr 2002, p.82]
  6. Gets lost somewhere between camp and institutionalism.
  7. All the clichés from French pop and house music collected in one shiny package.

    A good dance album made great by its concept of death=disco fun
