Quotes

“Like playing Grand Theft Auto on Ecstasy.” 8/10 Vice

“Neon Neon has created an album that isn’t so much a straight-up replica of ’80s excess as one that puts all of that indulgence into perspective, both emotionally and musically.” 4.5/5 Allmusic

“A brilliant electro-pop concept album.” Dazed & Confused

“Damn near perfect… Early contender for album of the year.”
Record Collector

“Utterly unique…The stuff of dreams.” Clash

“One of the most brilliantly demented electro-pop albums you’ll hear this year… the best side-project since Gorillaz… Miss it at your peril.” 8/10 NME

“Neon Neon were bound to get compared to Gorillaz. Stainless Style is more consistent as an album… The potential hits, hit equally hard.” 7.7/10 Pitchfork
