I can't help but feel Dragonette have sanded away the edginess of dance pop and given a very
clean and safe pop record. Personally, my favourite album from them is Fixin to Thrill and
this album has peeled away the individuality of that album and for me; has made Dragonette
yet another artist making average dance pop music. Not that there aren't any good moments
here. I like the sound of 'Rocket Ship' and the loudness of 'My Work is Done' and the album
closer 'Cuckoo' is a slice of acoustic heaven to diverse from the consistent use of beats
and swirling electronic filled pop tracks.
Dragonette just gets worse and worse. While even their previous album had at least a couple of keepers, I couldn't help but cringe at most of the hooks and it was ridiculous to hear how annoying Martina's vocals had gotten. On Bodyparts, those two things are cranked up so high their knobs have broken off.
