  • Summary: The band's follow-up to 2005's 'Gimmie Trouble' finds Adult. back down to the original duo of Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller.

    By far their boldest statement yet. [Apr 2007, p.92]
  2. 80
    Adult. is cathartic cabaret for the sketched out. [Apr 2007, p.101]
  3. There’s something oddly accessible about the mess the duo make on Why Bother?
  4. Why Bother? may not have quite the same sonic guitar depth as Gimme Trouble, but the mechanical, industrial-punk synth work, inching closer to perfection with each release, does an admirable job of filling in the aural gaps.
  5. It's a little disappointing that none of the band's stylistic shifts have let them bloom into much more, but as furrows for ploughing go, this one's still pretty fascinating, and still all theirs.
  6. Headaches and nausea are a possibility, so approach with caution. [Apr 2007, p.116]
  7. Mediocre. [May 2007, p.162]
