Review: Numbers/Adult. – Numbers + Adult. = This Seven Inch

Numbers steals the show on this rumbling little two-song battle of the bands, where the weapons of choice appear to be tinny dance rhythms, shrieked vocals, electronic beeps and Moog whirring. Pro: Numbers’ temper-tantrum “Nothing matters/ but what I want” refrains. Con: The shrill close to Adult.’s “Monologue,” which lacks some of the wallop the Detroit electroclash/noise duo usually packs. – Punk Planet, September/October 2006
