  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (12/99, p.220) - 6 out of 10 - "...peppy enough to make even a college sophomore feel old....buzzsaw guitars, plaintive vocals, and driving tempos - in fact they sound almost 'exactly like' Superchunk. Not a bad thing..."
    Magnet (1-2/00, p.68) - "...the perfect blend of punk, raw energy and homespun pop sensibilities....with enough gusto to make the tornadoes of their home state [Kansas] seem like soft breezes....[It] will seep into your brain and you'll find yourself singing along to lyrics you won't forget."
    CMJ (1/10/00, p.4) - Ranked #10 in CMJ's "Top 30 Editorial Picks [for 1999] - "...[an album] filled with strong songs built on infectious, driving melodies."
    Melody Maker (4/11/00, p.48) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Another thrashy-guitar/harmonised-vocals US punk-pop band, but since when was that a bad thing?....[their] songs take precedence over their sneers....gorgeous..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (5/00, p.89) - "...Quickly surpasses all expectation with a new-found sense of pace, cleaner pop accessibility and some unashamedly Noo Wave keyboards..."
    NME (Magazine) (2/26/00, p.37) - 7 out of 10 - "...an opus of buzzing popcore, heartfelt vocals and confessions....Their hearts might be on their sleeves, but The Get Up Kids' tailoring is 'sumptuous'."
    Record Collector (magazine) (p.95) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "It's music as catharsis -- pure, visceral and honest, just as music should be."
