  • Summary: This Los Angeles-based electroclash outfit is the brainchild of Matt Sims, who comes a close second to Beck in terms of pulling off a quality Prince imitation on this, his debut full-length.

  1. Mount Sims manages to kick down some boundaries and offer a throbbing, sensual slab of neo-electro that isn't afraid to offer some self-aware laughs.
  2. Uncut

    A magnificently rich and confident debut.... This is how Fischerspooner should have sounded. [Dec 2002, p.142]
  3. Mixer

    Ultra Sex represents everything that's great about electro. [Nov 2002, p.78]
  4. Blender

    Full of hard beats and soft sells. [#11, p.136]
  5. Over drum beats as brittle as a saltine cracker and just as bland, synths chirp and fade, and an indistinct voice mutters like a bored ghost of some forgotten New Waver.

    This CD isn't perfect, but it's best moments are the ideal stripped down electric sound that is just a tiny bit melodic. It's This CD isn't perfect, but it's best moments are the ideal stripped down electric sound that is just a tiny bit melodic. It's the best of the 80's New Wave condensed into a single CD. Best songs in this order Hollywood Bride, Together Alone, We Electric, How We Do and good service. The rest is on the whole is good enough to create a really good CD Expand
