AllMusic Review by

A bouncy quirk of pop is present throughout both sides of Velocity. But the Penniless People of Bulgaria also provide a robotic stride of '80s new wave that's sped up to a punked-out structure of three-chord guitar hooks. With a catchy but serious sound resembling that of Weezer, the Penniless People of Bulgaria manage to create vibrant melodies without an overabundance of Moog synthesizers.
