  • 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]
