  • Summary: The synth-pop duo of Amy Dykes (vocals) and Dan Geller (music) are best known for two things: (1) recording all of their music on a laptop computer, and (2) well, their name, which (understandably) attracted some attention post-September 11 and was briefly changed and then restored.

    The way-cute, we're-just-messing-around-with-our-computer feel of Out Of The loop is missed, but The Tight Connection gives a crisper picture of the duo at work. [#55, p.80]
  2. This is a fun, lightweight side project. And it sounds like the ear candy that it is.

    The Tight Connection's unfussiness would be the perfect playground soundtrack.
  5. The detached, semi-ironic delivery doesn't play well with the perky club beats.

    The cutesy factor may necessitate an insulin shot before repeated listening. [July 2002, p.80]
