Spin (p.92) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "This one-man A/V club party makes low-budget electronic pop that's as bizarre as it is uproarious."Uncut (p.99) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[P]retty fun...mainly because Deacon eases off the zaniness and hurtles through a number of manically uplifting hypermelodic chip-tune anthems..."Uncut (p.90) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Dan Deacon has mixed up a background in avant electro-acoustics with a delight in gabba repetition and goofy textures, to produce a delirious psychedelic confit."Q (Magazine) (p.115) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he 12-minute 'Wham City,' an odyssey into sweeping ecclesiastical harmonies and driven electro strangeness, perhaps best captures his oeuvre."Clash (magazine) (p.107) - "[H]e mixes his compositions with quirky electronic pop. Humorous monologues, sped-up vocal samples and film sequences gurgle as he bashes the life out of his laptop. Throughout, Deacon is pushing sound to the limits..."0.3735353

Rolling Stone (8/30/01, p.128) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...Exquisite...music so technically demanding its creators had to call in A-list session players to realize the sounds they heard in their heads but could not play....AJA [is the]frustration and failure at the heart of the party."Q (6/00, p.131) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...Sleek, smart, deliciously cynical...Lyrically opaque and using the best musical back-up in the business, this was the Steely Dan album that effectively ring-fenced jazz-funk forevermore....what rich entertainment still."16.27604

Rolling Stone (3/10/94, p.67) - "...suggests that the group's greatest strength wasn't writing or playing but arranging..."Q (2/94, p.109) - 5 Stars - Indispensable - "...Steely Dan is the closest pop has come to the acid wit of Wilde and Coward and Vidal...."Melody Maker (1/8/94, p.29) - "...Steely Dan were no more nihilistic than The Stooges. It's just that, instead of Rolling Stones riffs and Chuck Berry solos, Becker and Fagen used East Coast Jazz, Latin rhythms, saccharine harmonies and choruses worthy of Burt Bacharach or Hollywood musicals..."16.20149

Spin (p.76) - "'Snookered' is the centerpiece -- kidlike keyboard plinks and the ambient hum of looped voices swell to a shaggy indie-rock lope....Even at his most contemplative and nuanced, Deacon remains a DIY trickster at heart."Alternative Press (p.142) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "Glitchy synthesizers meet meditative chants, hyperactive arpeggiators meet droning vocals, challenging song structures are filled with huge cadences and addictive melodies that warrant repeat listens."Mojo (Publisher) (p.106) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "BROMST takes it to the next level. Dense, but not impenetrable....This time around the wackiness is reined in and limited to titles such as 'Baltihorse' and 'Surprise Stefani.' Cheeky, but delightful."Blender (Magazine) (p.60) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The Baltimore electronic composer's beats are manic, exuberant and overstuffed with '80s synth-pop squiggles."Clash (magazine) (p.113) - "It's the sound of absolute calculated madness from Dan's cheap Casio rhythms to the pitched-up-beyond-all-recognition vocal effects."0.2691109
