    The music is what matters, and Prince Rama, with this highfalutin' silliness, have delivered big.

    As a concept Top 10 Hits… is frequently confusing, often brilliant and at times downright awful. Ultimately, it adds up to a very intriguing album by a band that is quite impossible to pin down.

    There's a subtle psychedelic twist in these phony hits that somehow renders the best of them compulsively listenable. [Oct 2012, p.64]
  4. An ambitious concept, but not fully executed, Top Ten Hits Of The End Of The World is stuck somewhere in-between.

    It's more accessible than more tripped-out previous releases. [Dec 2012, p.110]

    Top Ten Hits often sees a band with a highly stylized identity sitting inside of another band with a highly stylized identity. More often than not, these halves clash, one entirely overpowering the other, negating what makes the concept interesting.
