"[Love X Stereo] show that PSY is not the only thing in South Korea, yet the music can be as addictive as “Gangnam Style” but more serious...a touch of what seems like indie rock/alternative mixed with electronica that gives us something to dance and sing along to, something pop, something awesome." -- Skope
