    Pop Tune finds the Japanese three-piece in fine form, exhibiting a wide-eyed freshness all the more remarkable when you consider that they have been a going concern since 1981.

    The occasional recorder and kazoo only add to the weirdo charm of this very fine album.

    Pop Tune is in the top handful of records that Shonen Knife have released; a slight update on the rougher sound they pedalled in the first half of their career, but it still sounds DIY-enough to please the faithfuls.
  4. Thankfully, the Knife have remained true to their essential principles.
