    Critics keep getting caught up in the 80's, electroclash, irony, no irony comparisons but what many have yet to realize is that there is a serious shortage of feel good, sincere and musically tight bands like Chromeo. There hasn't been a live and entertaining show like Chromeo's since the Beatles' and there hasn't been a danc-y catchy album this good since 1992.

    DUSTED MAGAZINE i have one thing to say to you so read very closly... F*CK YOU there is several reasons your magazine is named dusted, one because Nobodys ever heard of it, secondly because nobody cares for your poorly though out criticism , and lastly because your magazine collects a lot of dust because i never picked it up before nor will i ever. CHROMEO DONT LISTEN TO THESE FOOLS YOUR DUSTED MAGAZINE i have one thing to say to you so read very closly...

    Yeah I agree with Sana M. Critics seem to rarely understand the delight one gets from something like this. "Yo, I'm in the studio - I can't talk right now... no babe I can't tal... yo what?!? whatever..." (scratch scratch scratch)

  1. 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]
  2. 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.

    The best ’80s-revival funk made by white Canadian hip-hop kids since, like, ever.
