William Ruof at The State Press: Arizona State University reviews Foxygen's '...And Star Power' and comments on the Todd influences:
The album begins with "Side One, Part One: The Hits; What's the Hook?" full of songs that are easy going, catchy grooves. After a short intro, the album kicks into lead single, "How Can You Really?" a bouncy, organ-driven tune reminiscent of Rundgren's "I Saw the Light." …We then move into "Side One, Part Two: Star Power Suite" on which the influence of the Velvet Underground still feels heavy. "Star Power III: What Are We Good For?" sounds like it is sung by Lou Reed himself. "Star Power IV: Ooh Ooh" closes out the first side of the record with an intro straight off of Rundgren's "It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference." The song leaves an eerie feeling behind as it fades into silence.
