    It's safe to say that nobody has created such an immediately unique sound for themselves since Shampoo were huge. At once spooky, melancholic, strange and exhilarating. It crosses genres to show everyone from pop princesses to fuck-you-metallers how their type of music should be done. With a combination like this, all infused with wit and a quality control that should make others It's safe to say that nobody has created such an immediately unique sound for themselves since Shampoo were huge. At once spooky, melancholic, strange and exhilarating. It crosses genres to show everyone from pop princesses to fuck-you-metallers how their type of music should be done.

    Come ON, reviewers. Obviously the a: onslaught of teen pop and b: your rush to slobber and drool over such supposedly groundbreaking acts as Starsailor and Elbow has dulled your listening sensibilities. No other way about it, Souljacker is a masterpiece. Funkier numbers like Dog Faced Boy, Souljacker Pt 1 and Teenage Witch are great, but it is with the sublime World of Shit that the album Come ON, reviewers.

    Best pop album of 2001. Too bad the US had to wait 'till 2002 to hear it. E is a genius.

    Strange stuff, but oddly appealing. [Feb/Mar 2002, p.111]
  2. The whole back half of Souljacker drops into a range between plain bad and plain vanilla with only the occasional standard deviation above musically amusing.

    Fresh, funny and unpredictable. [Apr 2002, p.72]
