  • Summary: The debut album for Perry Farrell's new band includes contributions from Peter Hook, Fergie, Thievery Corporation, Flea and John Frusciante.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 10
  2. Negative: 1 out of 10
  1. Its a richly textured, layered, and almost earnest stab at everything this artist ever attempted to do before, all rolled up nice on one album.
  2. "Ultra Payloaded" is a party record that veers from the light, airy and catchy to the absolutely crankable. [2 Jun 2007]
  3. A surprisingly rewarding listen. [#17, p.86]
  4. 60
    Bettencourt's howling power-glam riffs pair well enough with Farrell's alley-cat wail. [Jun 2007, p.95]
  5. 60
    What has sadly gone missing here, however, is Farrell's voice. [Jul 2007, p.112]
  6. Most of Ultra Payload feels pretty random.

    Perry has not had such a richly layered effort of unique music since Porno For Pyros. Diverse, rich production with a few surprises. The Perry has not had such a richly layered effort of unique music since Porno For Pyros. Diverse, rich production with a few surprises. The album is a worthwhile listen from an artist that continues to expand upon what was defined as alternative and post-punk music. Easily one of the more creative albums of 2007. Expand

    I love Perry, but I have to say that this album is just as dissapointing as Strays.

    Going only by the cover art, 29 second clips and what has been posted on their myspace .. Perry has clearly lost his mind.

Bringing in hair rocker Nuno and forcing his wife Etty down are throats makes me wish that I was able to give this a negative score. Expand
