Is this the touchstone?
Peter Sanderson | Doha, Qatar | 07/14/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Between "Schnich-schnack," "Evoke An Object" and "Send Me Shivers," MoM is definitely one of the most brilliant sources of listenable music out there today. This is intelligent electronica coupled with the warmth of vocals and the energy of a house immediacy. I don't want to say "beat" because this stuff is far too subtle and innovative to slip into the doldrums of ubiquitous beat manufacture. Look upon it as a touchstone of what the possibilities of sound can do for discriminate listeners. Abstract, yes, but WAY accessible enough as to get your foot tapping and more! Honestly, I cried with joy (what a sap!) when I heard "Send Me Shivers" 'cause of the way it combines luscious vocals with such trippin' deconstructed sound waves. What can I say, it's right up there with the very best of Stereolab."
RADICAL!!!!!!

"I'm fairly new to Mouse on Mars...I figured that if I can listen to the manufactured sounds of Matthew Herbert and even the drill n' bass of Amon Tobin, I can give these guys a try. This is some pretty good stuff...very inventive, funky and all around accessible. I first bought "Autoditaker" and was blown away and now "Radical Connector" has come along and made me like this group even more. I love the beats and the alien-like glitches, the subtle and not so subtle changes in textures and the ethereal melodies. Radical Connector doesn't sound at all automated like most CDs of its ilk, in fact there's still a human/organic quality on songs like "Wipe That Sound", "Send Me Shivers", "The End" and "Evoke An Object" where you can hear strings, guitars and good old fashion basslines. Excellent Work, Mouse on Mars!!! You've Got Yourself a New Fan!!!!!!!!!!!"
