Barnes & Noble - Amy Barkat
Canadian animated rockers Simon & Milo step out of their roles on the Disney Channel's TV movie with their first CD, an irresistible collection of bouncy dance-pop sure to please tweens and teens. Former Philosopher Kings members Jay Levine and James McCollum pull the musical strings behind this charming duo, dishing out fun-filled tunes with an upbeat message. "Be As" celebrates diversity and encourages individuality, while "It's Not Me It's You" features great scratching that follows Simon's dramatic search for love, as he laments, "Parting words of love denied are...it's not me it's you." Oh, so harsh. Setting teen angst and sass to a Euro dance beat, "Sucks to Be ...

Setting teen angst and sass to a Euro dance beat, "Sucks to Be You" is a surefire winner for older kids, while the younger set will go for the Blink 182-ish pop-punk of "Get a Clue," the title track to the movie and a playlist regular on Radio Disney. But don't pass this off as a tween thang -- energetic beats and a sense of humor make this a fun, hip offering for any dance-pop fan.

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
North of the U.S.-Canadian border, this animated duo is known as Prozzäk, and they're stars, thanks to their inventive and humorous videos shown regularly on MuchMusic, Canada's homegrown equivalent of MTV and ultra-catchy synth pop songs. In the U.S., Prozzäk's first album, 1998's Hot Show, was a stiff, and the follow-up, 2000's Saturday People, never even came out. Sensing that they could do a better job with the duo than their original U.S. label, the Disney-owned Hollywood label signed Prozzäk, changing their name to Simon and Milo Simon is the lead singer with the exaggerated British accent, and Milo is his mostly mute Austrian buddy who plays the guitar; in real life, they're Jason Levine and James McCollum, respectively and remixing tracks from both albums to reintroduce the pair to the Radio Disney demographic. What's noteworthy is that Simon and Milo appeal to another age group as well, those old enough to look back fondly on the early days of MTV and the parade of British synth pop groups that were its first stars. Levine and McCollum, who are also members of the Canadian soul-pop band the Philosopher Kings, invented Simon and Milo on their main group's tour bus as a reflection of their continued fondness for the disposable chart pop of their youth. Songs like the hyperactive "Omobolasire" and the unforgettable "Sucks to Be You" are built on layers of vintage synths and acoustic guitars, sounding like early Thomas Dolby on a laughing gas jag. Even more gimmicky tunes like "It's Not Me It's You," built on "The Dance of the Sugarplum Fairies" from "The Nutcracker Suite," and "www.nevergetoveryou.com" have the unapologetically giddy bounce of a classic early Bananarama single. The one point where things get more treacly than sweet is the cloying "Be As," a cheerleading self-reliance seminar that resembles Vitamin C's equally icky "Graduation Day," but even that has a really catchy chorus. It may be more of a guilty pleasure for some listeners than others, but Ready Ready Set Go is a pure-pop blast.

    They have a real '80s kind of style

    British pop is coming back! Simon and Milo really tell us they believe in unity in the song ''Be As''...with lyrics like...''be as white as you want to, be as black as you want to, be as brown as you want to, don't like anybody stop you.'' It has a powerful message. It's really funny because I first heard Simon and Milo on the disney channel!

    Won this Skeptic Over

    I was SUPER skeptical when I first saw Simon and Milo in my Windows Media Player... there was a cartoon image above it, but then I thought, well the Gorillaz are the cartoon alter egos of some great musicians. The whole Simon and Milo CD was available for a listen for free, and I had nothing else to do while gearing up for the holiday (July 4) so I said, ''Why not?''. I usually don't like overly polished dance pop, nor the overly polished punk of bands like Blink 182. I like all kinds of stuff, from classical to hip hop to metal, but lean more towards the pop/rock of Pixies, The Breeders, Nirvana, etc. However, I found myself really enjoying this record. There are some really catchy tunes and some really cool ideas in it. In particular, the song ''It's Not Me, It's You'' was fantastic. It uses Tchaikovsky's ''Nutcracker Suite'' as it's melody. Ah-some. It's also got some really good 'messages' in it about acceptance and things like that, that could be considered cheesy, but when you think about the fact that a lot of teens will probably buy this record, I'd much rather them listen to this than to keep Limp Bizkit employed for eons past their 15 minutes. This record is a load of fun. Danceable, hummable, and different than any other pop dance band I can think of at the moment. Hints of it remind me of the much lamented Kenickie. I'd say I genuinely enjoyed 90% of this Ready Ready Set Go album with the remaining 10% seeming to grow on me as the album played. I will DEFINITELY buy this record. I know my friends will think I'm insane (I'm 27, and am thought of as a 'rock' girl), but I will tell them about it and I won't be ashamed for digging this. I'm half shocked at myself for saying so, but Simon and Milo rule! When's the movie?
