    This record is incredibly boring and lifeless, lacking the inspired spontaneity and invention of their earlier releases. A confirmed dud.

    Aside from the fact that Le Tigre signed with an awful major label, I feel let down. It felt as if they were definitely "playing it safe", both in terms of experimenting with sounds as well as the statements that they were trying to make. They are capable of doing much better than this.

  1. Whether thrashing out punk anthems Bikini Kill or turning out dancefloor-ready disco pop as on ‘This Island’, Hanna has always had something to say, and never has her message sounded so clear.

    The band is throwing a dance party--albeit DNC-promoting--led by cheerleader choruses and beats that snap, skip, and glisten like something out of a '79 discotheque. [22 Oct 2004, p.95]
  3. Kathleen Hanna’s girlish yelp grates more than usual, practically bereft of charm, and her bandmates can barely write a functional song much less play one.
