  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. Much like their debut, it'll take a few listens to be pulled towards Myth Takes by the force operates at its core.
  3. Myth Takes is a taut culmination that may just tear dance floors asunder with its locomotive inexorability.
  4. Few can match their percussive intensity. Weaker are their attempts at acutal songs, of which there are a few too many here. [9 Mar 2007, p.109]
  5. 70
    Myth Takes juxtaposes tribal post-punk with crooked attempts at actual pop, giving their epic groove-riders a booty-stimulating boost. [Mar 2007, p.86]
  6. Yet even if the lyrics actively discourage the application of your undivided attention, this is !!!'s most songful work yet.
  7. 40
    !!! certainly have talent and energy, but not the heart to self-edit. [Apr 2007, p.130]

    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+ Expand
