"...A record of substance, one that stands head and shoulders above today's garage bashers..." [Mojo, May 2003, p.89]

"...Imagine Edie Sedgwick had ousted Nico as the ragged voice of the Velvets, rather than remaining Warhol's image of decaying cool, and you have an idea of the elegantly wasted nature of the Kills. In thrall not just to Cale and Reed's sleazy simplicity but Black Box Recorder's covert humour and the adrenaline-fuelled rock'n'roll of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, the Kills rise above their influences for this sexy debut. Singer/guitarist VV borrows Justine Frischmann's sneer in Superstition, teasing and seductive as suppressed beats and dirty guitars twist into a tight ball of feedback. "Get my name stitched on your lips, so you won't get hitched," she and partner Hotel chant in Hitched, his guitar ripping the neo-glam-rock rhythm to shreds. The Kills sing in slogans, with Fuck the People an excuse for juvenile posturing amid harmonica wails and guitar stabs. Atmospheric blues for a style-conscious generation." (
