  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]

    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]
