  • Summary: The debut album for I Am The World Trade Center was recorded entirely on a laptop computer, with music by Kindercore head Dan Geller and vocals by Amy Dykes. [The band officially shortened its name to I Am The World following the tragic events of September 11, 2001.]
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 4
  2. Negative: 0 out of 4
  1. Geller's keyboard-fueled squiggles and quirky effects are effervescent but never cloying, thanks to the seriousness in Dykes' aloof, melancholy voice. [Oct 2001, p.84]
  2. Dan Geller and Amy Dykes have a buried knack for the driving groove; songs like "Move On" and "Holland Tunnel" want to rock your body and jack you up hardcore, but are limited by their sound and recording quality.
  3. A surprisingly refreshing and playful album's worth of electronic dance-pop.
  4. A smashing success that avoids sounding too retro, as Geller's beats sound readymade for roller discos and bedrooms alike.
