  • Summary: This is the fourth quirky release for the exclamation-point-loving, Devo-esque, Tokyo-based band.

  1. If you have never come across Polysics before, this album would be quite a good jumping on point.
  2. Light years beyond any current dance-punk act. [Apr 2006, p.203]
  3. So exciting that it should come with a precautionary bottle of Prozac. [6 May 2006, p.33]
  4. Unfortunately, Now is the Time! short-circuits early, leaving us with an empty gimmick and a few good synth-zapped riffs.
  5. 60
    While often inscrutable, it's seldom boring. [Jun 2006, p.110]
  6. 60
    Polysics' contorted robotones are so hot they should spew from volcanoes. [Apr 2006, p.97]
  7. So migraine-inducing that the Crazy Frog would seem like light relief. [May 2006, p.129]

    God, how out of touch are Q these days? ... Anyway, this album is a fine addition to the ever swelling Polysics catalogue of outstanding spaz rock. They have remained a force to be reckoned with for years now and I hope this will be their breakthrough. Expand

    Great, strange Japanes Punk Rock infused with dance beats. Think the Hives meets synth pop. If you wish Danko Jones was better and more Asian this is it Expand
