"Initially dogged in their pursuit of rhythm-driven gloom, Section 25 later became an indie-dance crossover act with a penchant for lilting melodies and warm electronics. It's a fusion of these two sounds that often inhabits their 21st century work, with Part-Primitiv exuding a bleak but comforting fragility which could only be achieved by a band from a far-flung corner of the north-west of England." (Electronic Sound, 09/2023)

"A vibrant, fierce collection of songs played with all the intense, live-wire energy one could want. Well worth the wait" (All Music Guide, 05/2007)

"The music on Part-Primitiv is informed by all phases of the band's back-catalogue, incorporating their early post-punk impulse alongside their later disposition towards electronic music. She's So Pretty is one of the band's closest brushes with pop music, while Power Base is a surprisingly straight-forward venture into techno, with its rampaging drum machine" (Boomkat, 05/2007)

"Haunting, melancholic beauty - part post-rock, part trance" (Plan B, 06/2007)

"Absolutely brilliant. The music remains true to their unique aesthetic in maintaining both the unsettling postpunk of their beginnings, and the electro-pop of the second incarnation" (, 06/2007)

"Fantastic album!" (Peter Hook, 2007)
