  1. Here's my big problem with Age of the Sun: the ending.
  2. 80
    Undeniably the work of a modern underground pop maestro. [Apr 2002, p.113]
  3. Doss on his own delivers a more controlled sound that recognizes quality over quantity without falling off the deep end of electro-dabbling, a fault that plagued some of OTC's later recordings. The result is clear, concise and powerful.
  4. Like XTC's Skylarking, the Sunshine Fix's Age of the Sun utilizes the song-cycle form to take listeners on a warbling, blissed-out journey that revolves around the life-giving power of the sun as a central theme.
  5. The Fix is Bill Doss, here trading soundscapes for soft-focus songs dressed in late-'60s filigree. [8 Feb 2002, p.76]
  6. 70
    This may be more apple peel than you care to chomp on for a sloppy experimental pop act making its debut. [#53, p.92]
  7. A middle-of-the-road OTC record heavy on angelic vocal harmonies and light on innovation. [Apr 2002, p.84]
