  1. What kept me on it was the ingrained musicality of a bunch of jokers who've evolved into a sonic organism even though they never see each other anymore.

    Through sweeping up intelligent, elusive imagery into well-sequenced, compact traditional tunes, this album redeems itself.

    It is, ultimately and unsurprisingly, a deeply angry and contentious album, yet one that glories in the act of musical collaboration.

    Ancient & Modern, their first in four years, is meaty and grizzled folk rock.

    The material is strong but rarely achieves greatness.

    Ancient & Modern's one sticking point is that, like 2007's predecessor Natural, it's a slow grower.
  7. 50
    There's some fun stuff, but nowhere near enough.
