  1. What lends Proof of Youth a whiff of genius is its ability to evoke exuberant innocence without making your teeth ache.
  2. Just when you're ready to give up and apply to graduate school, along comes a simple band who get everything right.
  3. The Go! Team's folluow-up is densely packed enough to make Phil Spector's Wall feel like a screen door. [Oct 2007, p.160]
  4. Every fade-in and chord change on Proof of Youth is perfectly calibrated to make for seamless song-to-song transitions and for an album that seems to end entirely too quickly.

    I actually like this movie, the only one major issue I have with it is its name. If it were up to me I would have called it "Around Great Youth Power"

    I think everyone rate's The Go Team a bit too high. The only really good songs are the first and second ones. I found some of Go Team I think everyone rate's The Go Team a bit too high. The only really good songs are the first and second ones. I found some of Go Team hard to listen too. The best song was, "Doing it Right" which was very good and "Grip like a Vice". The only problem is it sounds like a Gap commercial more than a DIY thing. I suppose Proof Of Youth is like sushi an acquired taste. Go Team are still cool but this is not something everyone is going to like. It does sound a bit like LCD soundsystem or The Battles for a new generation sick and tired of rap and grunge and for that reason I liked it. Don't believe the hype. It's not very long either.
