  • Summary: This tongue-in-cheek Canadian duo mixes 70s and 80s electro, funk, rock, and dance sounds on this debut.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 9

  1. These blow-dried disco numbers are unmistakably well-toned. [18 Sep 2004, p.65]
  2. 80
    Draws intelligently on its sources, revealing itself as more than mere pastiche. [Nov 2004, p.108]
  3. 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]
  4. 70
    Much more than the sum of its pastiche. [#6, p.86]
  5. 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.
  6. 70
    The best ’80s-revival funk made by white Canadian hip-hop kids since, like, ever.
  7. The album is just disappointing: full of slick beats of undisguised artifice and lacking the one thing all good slow jams need – namely, great vocals.
