  • Summary: 'This Is For Real' is the full-length debut for the trashy electro-punk outfit out of Sheffield, England.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 8 out of 15
  2. Negative: 1 out of 15
  1. This Is For Real is the album Aerosmith might make if they were back on the sauce. [Jul 2004, p.146]
  2. 91
    Like running full-tilt through a fun house with smoke machines, tinsel-covered ceilings and a super-size disco ball. [Aug 2004, p.108]
  3. If there’s a problem with ‘This Is For Real’ and you’ll have to really look, it’s the fact that it’s a tad too shiny. Not much, but, at times, it’s lost a bit of that dirtiness that made the Grease so appealing.
  4. This Is for Real has its moments, but it's not the sex-punk triumph these Sheffield-based narcissistic debaucherists seem to believe it is.
  5. Fulfill[s] glam's promise of tasty geezers in make-up playing shrill, sleazy punk sounds. [Jul 2004, p.121]
  6. 60
    The occaisonally infectious hooks keep the shtick from falling into one-dimensional parody. [#64, p.104]
  7. Oddly, nothing about This Is for Real feels sincere.
