    Talk About Body is a long, long way from the oblique post-shoegaze blur of chillwave, witch house, ill-bient and experimental dubstep at the cutting edge of the alternative.

    This Brooklyn-based trio make hedonistic dance-pop with brainy-sexy lyrics informed by gender politics, third-wave feminism and Queer Theory. [Feb 2011, p.90]

    MEN's debut is one of the best of the year. Or, at least, the best of the niche area where gender politics and dance music intersect.

    Talk About Body is so ridiculously accessible musically, that audiences dancing along to MEN's absurdly addictive pop songs are likely to be blindsided if they ever listen carefully to the lyrics.

    Though it's a bit longwinded, activism and dance music collide on Talk About Body, which is a fiery and totally irresistible combination. [Feb. 2011, p. 71]

    The repetitive beats and seemingly endless loops become, on the whole, tired and tedious too soon.

    Sadly, Talk About Body has the flat, dated electro-pop sound of Le Tigre, who are still a few years away from needing a rebirth.
