    Truly awful. This is rife with cliché, overblown bombast and trite "eclecticism". On top of that, some of the worst lyrics I have heard recently - "Can you feel it? Rocking the city, Ah yeah, straight out of nowhere-ness, Like a fist, can't resist you" - I mean come on, nowhereness!

    A rousing debut. [Aug 2005, p.123]
  2. Entertainment Weekly

    An album of tight and spiky blue-collar dance rock. [17 Mar 2006, p.114]
  3. "Stars of CCTV" is that rare British import that lives up to the advance billing.
