Junior Senior released their second album, Hey Hey My My Yo Yo on August 24, 2005 in Japan, where it went to #2 on the charts. The first single from the album, "Itch U Can't Skratch" is currently available in Japan and Denmark. The track "Take My Time" features Cindy Wilson and Kate Pierson of New Wave band The B-52's.
The mismatched Dutch duo behind the ecstatic dance hit "Move Your Feet" returns with its second album after considerable record company headaches. Fortunately, the delayed release date has done little to diminish Hey Hey My My Yo Yo's voracious appetite for a great party. Just look at the guest list: Cindy Wilson and Kate Pierson of the B-52's, Le Tigre, '60s Motown girl group the Velvelettes, even Spooner Oldham. "There's too much good stuff out there to ignore," goes the refrain to "Hip Hopallula." Junior Senior responds with a bounty of stuttering beats, low-tech synth flourishes, and shout-out choruses. "Give me a beat that I can dance to!" they demand on "Itch You Can't Skratch," immediately rectifying the problem with a slap bass-enhanced rhythm that would make Rick James proud. The music is relentlessly upbeat, as cheerful as it is stupid in songs like "Can I Get Get Get" and "Dance, Chance, Romance." And while Hey Hey My My Yo Yo lacks some of the pop savvy of the group's 2003 debut, D-D-Don't Don't Stop the Beat, it's hard to imagine walking away from this without sweaty armpits. --Aidin Vaziri

These days, I'm stuck on "Take My Time," from the funky bass line to the bouncy synth, to the full-on dance sound that kicks in at the refrain, to the modulation at the end. 3:49 of pop genius.
I liked the first Junior Senior album a whole bunch. It was a fine album, but perhaps a little too "happy-go-lucky". But when I heard this a few years back I couldn't believe it. Not a track on it that is even close to bad. Three years later and I still listen to this all the freaking time.
I have yet to meet anybody that doesn't count this as one of their all-time favorites. Even the "sad-rock-only-hipster-girls" I know love this. If you have a soul, and like smiling then this is for you. If you listen to this and don't smile then, there is honestly something wrong with you.
If you are a lover of music but think that this going to be too "sweet" for you, you'd be wrong. Each track is laced with so much solid musical goodness that you can't help but like it. This is a solid collection of the BEST that dance, rock and hip-hop have to offer the world. Take all of the good things about good music and lay em down back to back - and "Viola!" you've got Hey Hey My My Yo Yo.
There is literally nothing wrong with this album. I say that about few things in this world, but I can't say anything bad about this. Almost 100% perfect. Junior Senior deserve much more credit then they get for figuring out how to put a good day in your head via headphones.
The good songs are amazing-- "Take My Time", "Can I Get Get Get", and "Ur A Girl" are definitely the standout tracks. The mediocre songs are still good, but are somewhat tedious (like "I Like Music" and "Itch U Can't Skratch").
Although this CD is a LOT of fun, and I recommend it to people who like dance-y, indie music, the novelty does wear off eventually.
