  • Summary: This is the second full-length for the German indie-electro-pop duo of Stephanie Bohm (also in Couch) and The Notwist's Micha Acher.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 7
  2. Negative: 0 out of 7
  1. It's all done with skill and to great effect, and the album is good for mood-setting background or forefront reflection, or for some combination of the two.
  2. Under The Radar
    Few albums are both so intrepid and so balanced at the same time. [#13, p.98]
  3. Acher’s still a brilliant musician, and Bohm has the capacity to wreak some vicious vocal havoc. But now, fitting into a niche that they once helped epitomize, their record sounds stale.
  4. Urb
    Can get a bit monotonous and boring, but besides that a moody, grinding listen. [Mar 2006, p.123]
  5. It’s not a great album, though. For moody, guitar-reinforced electronic pop, Ladytron’s Witching Hour has it beat.
  6. Backed by Archer's stark soundtrack, Bohm remains as cool as the proverbial cucumber; her pretty-yet-monotone voice never betraying her stoic front.
  7. Notes and the Like is par-for-the-course lap-pop.
