    I found this record boring and extremely derivative. I don't get the excitement around this band! There's a couple of good catchy indie pop songs but at times they really sound like a Dinosaur Jr / Pavement cover band. We might probably have something here but they need to find their own style. Drummer looks cool though!

    boring and derivative stuff. maybe i am too old for it since i was around when pavement were the best band in indie rock... i don't get it. they just sound like a cover band of lots of 90's indie pop bands. 3/10 from me. sorry...

    I hated this kind of Lemonheads-lite, floral-dressed, clompety-booted, neurotic ninny inanity the first time round, I have absolutely no idea how anyone could be arsed to expend the (admittedly small) effort it takes to produce such a pointless photocopy ... [but] not even I can find it in my bitter heart to hate the Nickelodeon-Dinosaur Jr bounce of "Georgia" or the honey-toned amble of "Suicide Policeman".

    Strip away the noise and you'll realize that the charm of Yuck is rooted in fundamentals of great songwriting. [March 2011, p. 108]
  3. This array of whomping exotica reflects its creator's appetite for any Third World dance movement he can get his ears on, including such new ones on me as kuduro, barefoot, and -- from the mysterious depths of the District of Columbia -- Moombahton​!
