  • Summary: The German elecronica duo of Andi Toma and Jan St. Werner are back with their first LP in three years, combining distorted vocals and samples with their glitchy yet melodic--and sometimes even humorous--instrumentation.

  1. This may not be Mouse on Mars' most ambitious albums, but it's among the group's most successful -- it's not at all difficult to feel a connection to this truly intelligent dance music.
  2. Entertainment Weekly
    Sexy robot vocals slip and slide all over juicy squeals, raindrop plops, and jungle-thick beats. [20/27 Aug 2004, p.124]
  3. The giddy shift towards pop and even traditional dance music structure that Mouse on Mars take here is so irresistibly fun and persuasive that the very thought of loyalists furrowing their brows and crossing their arms is comical.
  4. Despite its flaws, Connector stands as one of their best.
  5. A warmer, more leisurely update of 2001's Idiology, Radical Connector foregrounds vocals to more inviting, song-minded ends.
  6. Rolling Stone
    The German duo has hitched its busy beats to big-ass melodies. [28 Oct 2004, p.100]
  7. The Wire
    A fitful and languishing affair whose best moments will have you yearning for more, while the worst may leave some listeners wondering what they were doing here in the first place. [#248, p.59]
