Critics' Reviews

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: 

The album is hardly flawless, but in an era that retro-fetishizes rock and whitewashed pop, Santogold feels both raw and real. [25 Apr/2 May 2008, p.119]

PopMatters: 

This album is a place to crash, boots to wear, pepper spray to fight back with and charcoal to dirty your hands. If the struggles of urban artists sound like this, these 12 anthems ensure that starving will never go out of style.

Billboard: 

Santogold pours all that experience into a bracingly eclectic set full of fuzzy New Wave synths, sticky avant-soul melodies, busted-laptop beats and sing-song vocal chants inherited from the likes of Neneh Cherry and Björk. If you've managed to avoid her until now, you won't be able to for much longer.

Through all her riffs and rhythms Ms. White comes across as both a scrappy underdog and a girlish cheerleader for everyone who feels like one.

Paste Magazine: 

In spite of the infamy, however, she has delivered a remarkable and assured album.

The Guardian: 

White purveys prickly electro-pop that is disarmingly infectious, if you can get past her yap of a voice.

Santogold ultimately sounds like her own damn movement.
