  1. A meticulously crafted pop album that's as well suited for curling up on a bleak winter night as it is for driving with the top down on a bright summer day.
  2. Here's my big problem with Age of the Sun: the ending.
  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. Entertainment Weekly
    The Fix is Bill Doss, here trading soundscapes for soft-focus songs dressed in late-'60s filigree. [8 Feb 2002, p.76]
  6. I've smiled and whistled right through every listen. But I haven't felt overwhelmed even once.
  7. Alternative Press
    A middle-of-the-road OTC record heavy on angelic vocal harmonies and light on innovation. [Apr 2002, p.84]
