  • Summary: The Swedish power-pop band's fourth album includes a remixed version of "Jerk It Out," better known as "that song in the iPod Shuffle commercial."

  1. All retro rock should sound this good. [22 Apr 2005, p.62]
  2. In less than five minutes it's clear the group has a sad edge and sensitivity lacking from its cartoonishly arrogant peers.
  3. Every song is designed to be played loud and sung along with even louder.
  4. The Caesars adopt a bombastic, arena-friendly brand of Sixties revivalism recalling that of... The Soundtrack Of Our Lives. Fortunately, the Caesars are good at it. [5 May 2005, p.74]

    It isn't until the latter half of the album... that they find their own voice, and one that delivers deliciously sugary powerpop. [Aug 2005, p.102]
  6. Ultimately, it's a flimsy album; though it's pleasant enough as background music, upon closer listening it falls apart.
  7. Some rather ordinary, slightly tuneless indie rock. [Jul 2005, p.112]

    I am probably the only person on Earth that loves this album as much as that, but it grows on me. The more I listen to it, the more I love I am probably the only person on Earth that loves this album as much as that, but it grows on me. The more I listen to it, the more I love it. I have had this album for over than a year now and everytime I listen to it I love it more and more. The best song is definitely The Winter Song, it makes me sad evrytime, especially since winter is coming now in my part of the world. Every song has its own identity, and they all rock. A solid ten because I love this album, really. It will stay in my top ten favorite albus of all time in my heart, that's for sure. Expand

    I wanted to hate it because Jerk It Out is on my tv constantly but it is a good album.

    I was pleasantly suprised - the first Caesars CD was hyperkinetic and rambunctious; this installment has real depth and heart, and much much I was pleasantly suprised - the first Caesars CD was hyperkinetic and rambunctious; this installment has real depth and heart, and much much better production.

    "Jerk It Out". What more can I say? Great song. If you can't get it out of your head than you know it's a hit.

    while there were songs on this album that would be considered filler, for the most part this album has much depth and a good catchy retro rock sound

    Yes. This band does have an album. And it isn't made up of various remixes of 'Jerk It Out'. The effort is pretty good and the Yes. This band does have an album.
