  • Summary: Linda Perry and Susan Sontag (!) penned songs for the dance duo's belated sophomore release, which also features production from Tony Hoffer and Mirwais.

  1. A taut, economic album with emotional songs at its heart. Yep, we’re as surprised as you.
  2. 83
    Infusing their music with real personality and humor, sexiness and humility, they've neatly transcended the air-quote graveyard. [Apr 2005, p.105]
  3. If there’s a single quality that ties these songs together, it’s consistency of scope and sound.
  4. This isn't a perfect album, but it is a great pop leap for Fischerspooner.
  5. Odyssey makes their transition from flag-waving fashionistas to serious, rewarding band smooth and entirely believable.
  6. Their first album, more art than pop, had an admirable conceptual purity. Now that they're a proper band after all, they turn out to be a rather ordinary one.
  7. 20
    Jettisons their saving grace--a big, glitter-streaked wink--for limp stabs at profundity. [Apr 2005, p.117]
