    "... once you get beyond the alien probing, 'I Don't Feel Good' is actually rather perky, despite Gothic pipe organs and the downcast, vocodered refrain, like a robot swallowing sobs. They take the son clavé syncopation [...] and abuse it so thoroughly that it's hard not to find a smidgen of amusement in it all -- like 24''s tongue-in-cheek approach to torture (another sure sign of the apocalypse). 'Mankind Failed', true to its title, is more serious, wrapping dark chords around an insistently jacking house pattern, cymbals flashing like the teeth on death's mask..." - Philip Sherburne, The Wire, April 2007
