    The results range from stupid to sexy to irresistably stupid. [Jan/Feb 2005, p.103]
  2. You're a Woman, I'm a Machine might be the best party record on this side of '79 that your local abandoned warehouse has ever seen.

Although I must admit, I didn't buy into it the first time I heard it. Or the second time. ANd even the third time. But I tried to like them and forced myself and eventually it clicked one day.

All In All, it's unlike any record I've ever heard and I wish they'd make another album. B+ Full Review »
