AllMusic Review by

Often very much akin to the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, especially in the vocal delivery, this group takes a more deconstructivist view toward their alt-soul material. That is, they go in for a less full sound with a more skeletal arrangement that allows space between one accentuating burst and another. Uptight is a loose and raw storybook album of decadence and discovery with lyric content that crosses Jim Thompson and J.D. Salinger for an outsider, urban noir.
