References

"A poptastic explosion of lo-fi scruffiness and hi-fi ideas... they are pagan love gods and, boys and girls, they rule the school of cool (4/5 stars)" (Melody Maker)
"A glorious cross-pollination of B&S folksiness and Tindersticks melancholy with a twisted experimental heart" (Select Magazine)
"The Chemistry Experiment continue their wing-and-a-prayer flirtations with pop music, ending all chances of this one ever battling it out with Boyzone by sticking a huge break in the middle where the only sound is a remote vacuum cleaner and some chap exclaiming "By Jove, they're doing it!" Before and after this, a jolly romp that Mungo Jerry could've done well with is spiked by a strange scraping noise" (Robots & Electronic Brains on 'Bubblegum')

Strengths and Weaknesses:

Strengths: We have the strength of four men. And a girl.

Weaknesses: Most of us find it hard to resist the offer of a pint. Aside from Lee, who is clearly all powerful.
