  1. I’m not sure what stands out the most about The Cover Up, whether it’s the tremendous production values or the clear confidence the band has with its music.
  2. 84
    Infectious. [#11, p.98]
  3. One of the most shiny and potent--albeit melancholy--synth-pop albums of the year.
  4. 70
    Listening to this breakup-on-tape is captivating. [#64, p.98]
  5. Although some of the tracks seem like replicas of their previous album and Dykes' voice sometimes falls flat, The Cover Up makes up for that with the attitude that non-stop dance music can save the day.
  6. They're certainly not reinventing the disco ball here, but [Dykes and Geller] are generally successful in putting a human face on the almost too-polished arrangements. [#7]
  7. They make OMD sound like Joy Division. [Aug 2004, p.124]
