"Famously the only constant in Pere Ubu is Thomas himself, and yet from the opening Monkey Bizness, 20 Years... feels like recognisably the same band that recorded classics like Final Solution and Modern Dance... Angular but well-rounded; Pere Ubu remain as paradoxical as ever."- William Pinfold, Record Collector

Five stars - "The record contains nasty little punk songs." - Albert Koch, Musikexpress

"There's no waste on 20 Years In A Montana Missile Silo, and there's no chaff, either: for all its experimentalism, it's a tight, taut and lean album overall. It's also really rather good, and an album that shows that even after more than four decades, Pere Ubu can produce music that's more thrilling than the majority of contemporary acts." - Christopher Nosnibor, Aural Aggravation

"And when its all over, you've heard a truly authentic voice." - Blow Up

"Where the likes of Black Keys have brought garage-rock to the Enormodomes and Radiohead have dragged the alternative into the stadiums, Pere Ubu have reined both in and rather than smooth out the edges, they have sharpened the edges' serrated teeth." - James Fleming, hifipig.com
