Xiu Xiu are a band I'm enormously fond of and I admire 'em greatly yet I'm not massively bothered about owning any of their records. A funny one that... The guy's a total loon but he's a complete maverick and he's got to be one of the most inventive musicians out there today.

9/10 Phil Staff review, 24 January 2008
Xiu Xiu are a band I'm enormously fond of and I admire 'em greatly yet I'm not massively bothered about owning any of their records. A funny one that... The guy's a total loon but he's a complete maverick and he's got to be one of the most inventive musicians out there today. The fragility in his music coupled with his unusual off kilter take on pop is a unique one. His new album 'Women As Lovers' is all over the shop.... The warped emotional universe he creates is really unlike anything else you'd ever hear. Each and every album is a revelation to itself... I don't think I've ever heard anyone sound more troubled on a record in my life. On every single one of his records he sounds like he's about to kill himself. Thankfully he doesn't as he creates something special that anyone into alternative music should really, really check out. Approach with caution but it's worth the time you'll put into it... Also anything which can incorporate the lyric ' Push Your Pastry Into Your Breasts' is a winner in my book. 2 of my favourite things in one sentence. Genius... The album also features a strangely authentic cover of Queen and David Bowie's of Under Pressure featuring the darklord Michael Gira. Nice!!
