“INVADERS MUST DIE” STRAIGHT IN AT #1 IN THE UK ALBUM CHARTS
“Invaders Must Die is a stirringly workmanlike, if retro, blast of founder/producer Liam Howlett’s anthemic breakbeat spazz. The deft drum programming and piercing synths of “Omen” (with Flint and Maxim back on mic) create the sort of gut-punching delirium that Justice could pull off if they weren’t too busy smoking Gauloises by the infinity pool” **** 4 Stars

“Invaders is 40 minutes of rhythms that leave you as disoriented as a night on the pipe, and its keyboard and guitar riffs that take substantial liberties with the dictates of music composition still manage to feel so, so right.”
– Filter Magazine
“The biggest-selling act in dance-music history rages harder than virtually any guitar band you can name these days.”
