  • Summary: This is the debut album for the electronic rock quartet from Reading, England.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 6 out of 18
  2. Negative: 1 out of 18
  1. Despite relying on too many tricks from the Daft Punk playbook, they prove there's more up their sleeve than just vocoders.
  2. 70
    The synthetics have the heavy warp that most dance floors like to roick, even as they land somewhere between Meat Beat Manifesto, Gang of Four and Ghostalnd Observatory. [Spring 2008, p.100]
  3. That this debut tries for so much and almost achieves it all is to be applauded. However, in trying to run before they can walk, DIOYY have missed out on making the classic this could have been.
  4. Newcomer electro-rockers produce a hyperactive, ear-decimating album that screams with heavy synth and rhythms, but dies with a lack of inspiration and creativity.
  5. Behind that David Brent-derived tag, Reading quartet Does It Offend You Yeah? make music with trashy, unpretentious brio.
  6. A shame, really, since there are couple of songs here displaying a melodic facility far in excess of the record’s dumbed-down intent.
  7. So this record's creative and artistic value is pretty much nil--in fact it only just hits competent.
