  1. If Louden Up Now was the sound of !!! trying to integrate their fusion of conflicting ideas and failing admirably, Myth Takes is the band not giving a damn and succeeding improbably at something even more interesting.
  2. Their best yet: it’s multi-faceted like no release before it (from the band’s catalogue), and each and every nuance is super funky.

    [The band has] gotten down to the more important work of constructing airtight grooves with just enough weirding-out to show their legion of followers that it takes more than a drummer with good 16th-note skills to rock this party right. [Mar 2007, p.96]
  4. Their most accessible and uncompromising album.... !!! deftly balance adventurousness with fun--a potent combo that too few bands achieve. [Apr 2007, p.192]
  5. Much like their debut, it'll take a few listens to be pulled towards Myth Takes by the force operates at its core.
  6. [Myth Takes] basically finds the group taking the best parts of their past releases and improving on them in dramatic ways.
  7. The major stumbling blocks of !!!'s shtick still pertain.

    Myth Takes is a strange wonderful art album. It blends psychedelic rock with dance-rock so perfectly well together. The stand out track is easily "Must Be The Moon". Each track sounds more different than the one before it. All In All, Chk Chk Chk have crafted a strange album that blends psychedelic and punk rock perfectly. B+ Full Review »
