“From the tasty chordal bass intro to "In Your Fantasy," to the crunchy distorted fadeout at the end of "We'll All Be Replaced," Privatized Air's latest effort, 'Tomorrow Or Something' is a string of cool surprises from start to finish. It doesn't hurt that track after track, Laura Hick's warm punchy bass hits you with the weight of a pneumatic pounder, or that Nicky Vasquez's stickwork is as musical as it is powerful, that the guitar tone is as crisp as a freshly ironed and starched dress shirt, or that Quider's quirky, darkly smirking vocals provoke you with lyrics that demand both your attention and thought.”
