  1. 80
    Against this highly contemporary but ever-wacko sonic backdrop, the Upsetter orates magisterially. [Sep 2008, p.98]
  2. 80
    Trippy vocal distortions, rock guitar, and the either enlightening or bewilderingly entertaining lyrics create what the younger audience commonly refer to as “The Shit.”
  3. Repentance can be taken as prime party music, but if you dig deeper, it's much more rewarding.
  4. 70
    Repentance is a lot of fun.
  5. This should be among Perry's higher-profile efforts in some time, with production by Andrew WK, and guest appearances by everyone from Moby to Brian Chippendale of Lightning Bolt. [Oct 2008, p.150]
  6. However nonsensical, Perry's rants remain entertaining, and despite its flaws, the album holds together from start to finish.
  7. 40
    Percolating tracks such as 'Pum Pum' and 'Chooga Cane' are more like undercooked, meandering jams than songs, mixing loose grooves and breezy synths as the profane Perry portrays a muttering old codger.
