"The musical accompaniment to teen (mostly male) rebellion."
"There is a reason why the album struck such a chord."
"It is the sound of love turning sour and responsibility taking its place."
"Few tears are likely to be shed over this bolted together collection of near-jingles."
"Madonna warbles about doing her best impression of a singing sensation."
"Today Hysteria sounds actually quite jolly and bouncy."
