  • Summary: Scotland-born Nick Currie recorded this latest collection of strange pop tunes in his new home of Tokyo, then handed them off to John Talaga (Super Madrigal Brothers) for remixing.

    His most purposeful work in some time. [Jun 2003, p.94]
  2. This record is packed with deceptively simple melodies -- often aping established pop forms and the singer’s usual array of influences -- that are nearly irresistible because of the detail that Momus and Talaga infuse into each of his songs.
  3. As unique as ever. [Jun 2003, p.102]
  4. 70
    The wit and intelligence rarely lets up. [May 2003, p.95]
  5. Oskar Tennis Champion would surely please most Momus fans, though it does not match up to his best albums.
  6. A chuga-chuga sort of electro-muddle, all pops and whistles and bon mots -- and no heart.
  7. Awful as it might be, Oskar is not easy to dismiss because awfulness has always been a part of Momus' gambit.
