  1. 80
    Seven tracks, 31 minutes, and not a duff second in sight. [Oct 2002, p.104]
  2. 70
    ESG are still creating music of eerie austerity. [Oct 2002, p.108]
  3. 70
    Endearingly anachronistic. [Jan 2003, p.128]
  4. White it can still sound like samples waiting to be made into songs, on It's Not Me and Six Pack they reveal a canny knack with almost Motown-esque pop hooks. [Oct 2002, p.107]
  5. 60
    Brilliantly restrained throughout, ESG's sparse, mechanical funk remains unique and vital. [#12, p.142]
