    3D
    [A] slick, street-smart album of sassy party tracks and sensitive slow jams. [Jan 2003, p.73]

    This record is neat and all, but Buzzkunst doesn't add to the collective legacy of Shelley and Devoto. [June 2002, p.88]

    The well-produced sheen of Gusgus' biggest club hits may be gone, but longtime fans should be open-minded enough to accept these mostly interesting, and danceable, explorations of techno's funky roots. [Sep 2002, p.80]

    If you liked previous Nightmares On Wax material, this one won't do it for you, as Evelyn's music has grown more vocal-based and less "stony."

    As a document of solid, if not always spectacular, post-modern hip-hop that dips into soul and R&B, Trinity is worth the money. [Aug 2002, p.82]

    I
    As perfectly all-over-the-place as Air's Moon Safari and as stick-to-your-ribs as any electro record this year. [May 2002, p.76]
