- The Sunday Times: "The success of [Beyoncé's "Single Ladies"] supports the view that chart pop — be it American R&B or, in this country, the blowsy, often berserk electro-pop pioneered by the likes of Xenomania — is by far the most experimental genre in contemporary music."
- Neil Tennant: "Xenomania are the top pop producers in Britain at the moment, particularly famous for Girls Aloud, who had 20 Top-10 singles and are a household name. I love that song we wrote with them—we should record it ourselves at some point. They experiment with mainstream pop, and I think the most interesting kinds of music [occur] when people experiment in the mainstream."
- About.com: "[In Pet Shop Boys' album Yes] Xenomania becomes the eurodisco Barack Obama, dealing with serious and sensitive issues but with a sense of something new and filled with hope."
- Chris Lowe: "[Recording at Xenomania] was great fun. It's basically a house full of musicians—one in every room, all doing different things. They all pass around USB sticks and put their little parts in."
- Neil Tennant: "When they worked as production team on the songs that we’d written, it’s a fantastic operation Brian [Higgins]’s put together, a really great team of people who are so into pop music and really enthusiastic about what they do. All the time we were working there, Girls Aloud would be popping down and Alesha and it felt great to be connected with contemporary British pop"
