    Six Demon Bag is one of those records that continually manages to surprise me with each listen. At first, there carnivalesque sound and antics could completely dismiss the listener, but let it grow on you and you can easily pick out the beauty of this record. Each track consists of different instruments and experimenting with different sounds, yet it still sounds like Man Man. "Van Helsing Boombox" is the standout track on this LP. All In All, it's a tough listen at first. I almost gave up, but their is beauty to behold in this wacky record. B+ Expand

  1. The solution to enjoying this album, then, is to not ask it to provide heavy drama, high art, or fiery revolt – it's just pop music with a slight twist, and it's first and foremost about having a good time inhabiting glamorous guises and histrionic voices.
  2. Live it’s easy to ignore the subtleties of the songs, which makes Six Demon Bag a different, but equally great experience.
  3. More power to those who can do it, but from this perspective, it's nearly impossible to enjoy Man Man's Six Demon Bag while sober. [Apr 2006, p.222]
