    [Fans] will undoubtedly identify those elements that make the band special on this fourth album, though the intensely personal nature of Thorburn's songs and his vocals tend to make this seem at times more like a solo effort. [Mar 2012, p.84]

    Asleep and a Forgetting is [mellifluous], only crankier and somehow more personal than anything previous, soaked in the moody nuances of laughter and forgetting, memory and momentary lapses of such. [No. 85, p.55]
