Spark me Out!

"Besides "Bonsai Superstar", "Electro Shock for President" is one of the best Brainiac CD's, even though it's only about 15 minutes long, it's well WELL worth it. Mr. Fingers and Fresh New Eyes are very catchy and you will catch yourself singing these all the time. I would recommend Brainiac if you like bands such as Sonic Youth, Radiohead, and Nirvana."
A Sexy Mouth to Taste It

"This really isn't a great collection of music, but it's a really interesting CD. It's like one really good but poorly recorded song, the introduction to one really good song, and some interesting electronic gibberish that would work better as filler between good songs on an album.
Electro-Shock is noisy and dark. In the last track the production is so loose it's almost terrible, but it's good like that. It seems natural as what it is. The production on the first track sparkles and rumbles. The other songs mix around recorded nonsense, computer singing, and lots of looped beats that cut each other up and audibly fold and distort and conflict.
It's music to go crazy to. With a grin, and dancing like a twiggy freak in the rain holding a flare in your teeth or making out with a sweaty girl who's holding a knife. Or maybe it sounds like a headache.
As a side note: anybody who really got into Saddle Creek bands Bright Eyes, Cursive, and the Faint should really heart this at least once, just for a little perspective.

Great punk with electronic sensabilities

"my favorite brainiac album around, mostly because it is their darkest. clever lyrics and impressively constructed tracks-- it is unfortunate we won't be hearing anything new from them, as they were the best thing to ever come out of dayton, ohio."
