  1. Sure, it's nothing that hasn't been done before.... Still, there's no denying that She's In Control is one helluva bad-ass, booty-shakin', funky-fresh party record.
  2. Were its hooks not as strong, She's in Control would probably come across as mechanical and calculated, but its many bright spots elevate it above being just a shrewdly timed exercise in cultural re-appropriation.
  3. 70
    The best ’80s-revival funk made by white Canadian hip-hop kids since, like, ever.
  4. New Musical Express (NME)
    80
    These blow-dried disco numbers are unmistakably well-toned. [18 Sep 2004, p.65]
  5. Uncut
    80
    Draws intelligently on its sources, revealing itself as more than mere pastiche. [Nov 2004, p.108]
  6. Entertainment Weekly
    75
    These '80s-trash connoisseurs have everything electroclash lacks: full-bodied grooves, self-deprecating idiot grins, and--what's best--sax solos. [20 Feb 2004, p.66]
  7. Planet
    70
    Much more than the sum of its pastiche. [#6, p.86]
