  1. The result is so refreshing original, it not only cements Gold Chains' position as one of today's best and brightest indie-tech gurus; it also says, coolly and effortlessly, that genre boundaries are "no big thang".
  2. The sound has a new depth. [#249, p.65]
  3. 70
    A startling album of high-spirited pick'n'mix pop. [Nov 2004, p.122]
  4. Unfortunately, the observational heart of the disc's best rhymes are obscured by manicured eccentricity and musical dilettantism.
  5. The key flaw with this album is that it doesn’t have any of the bangers that GC can do so well.
  6. These brittle, next-wave-of-new-wave productions plow no new ground and barely serve the lyrics to which they're chained.
  7. When the World Was Our Friend is for third-tier tone-deaf hipsters.
