  1. Hurrah for all those who delight in confounding expectations, especially when the results are this unexpectedly, paradoxically delightful.

    A sparky and honest mess. [Mar 2005, p.94]
  3. A horrible, hysterical splurge of splenetic punk rock, processed beats and whimsical experimental chaos. Which is no bad thing. [5 Feb 2005, p.51]
  4. For all the sloganeering, Press the Spacebar never forgets that it's a dance album.
  5. Unfortunately, the band is not able to match their vitriol with memorable tunes.
  6. 30
    The Chicks sound as though they're running out of gas. [Mar 2005, p.118]
  7. The trouble is, they've... stopped writing songs. Instead, there are collages of sound devoid of subtlety; colliding rhythms that make noise rather than sense.
  8. Musically, it sucks. [Feb 2005, p.98]

    Its never going to make sense with the chicks - its all about being unconventional and making a lot of noise - sometimes about nothing - but hey - I love em and a lot of their music - this one perhaps not as good as previous ones. But hold onto yoru caps - they'll bounce back .... Full Review »
