  1. A truly twisted masterpiece that offers new rewards with each new listen.
  2. 80
    They've toughened up considerably. [#12, p.154]
  3. A soulful kitsch-pop pastiche reminiscent of everything from Roxy Music to the Beatles. [Jan 2003, p.100]
  4. An unapologetically eccentric album that explores the boundaries of psychedelic pop sounds in the same way Autechre does in the electronic world.
  5. They sound like little else you’ve heard before.
  6. 60
    Some compared Simian's debut to the Beta Band, but this is much more retro, raw and rockin'. [Jan 2003, p.76]
  7. A disappointing mishmash of simple electroclash beats and basslines and forceful, constant vocals. Gone is the dreaminess, the floating melodies, basically everything good about Simian's debut.
