  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.
