CRITIC REVIEWS

Pitchfork

She refuses to be a locus of explanation or control, keeping her lyrics generally vague and frequently losing herself in bursts of incomprehensible excitement or fervor.

AllMusic

Between the violently happy songs and the softer ones, this is some of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' most balanced and cohesive music.

A grown band, an grown sound. A toughful and balanced record, just what they can do and they want to do. Strong, with bops, smooth and light. In some parts a little bit boring but can make you pay attention easily. Karen O making her voice grater to the point to compare in 2019 with his lux prima. Great

A forever underrated record from a band that successfully stuck the landing after jumping from the high grounds of punk music onto the concrete floor of mainstream pop. Couldn't have done it better.

An incredible album way ahead of it's time. Heads Will Roll, Dragon Queen and Hysteric are my faves.
