Review this album
May 15, 2013It's a beautiful album that captures the essence of domestic, content life through its calming grooves and fantastic melodies. It's chilling, relaxing, and relatable, and more approachable than most YLT records. I think it has proven itself very worthy of all the critical attention and is easily one of the best albums of the 21st century.
GuyHApr 12, 2007Not a typical YLT album in that there isn't as much variety in mood and pace as usual. However, I think this eventually works in the album's favour, creating a really hypnotic feel. A brilliant late night listen.
SlowGlassRecordsSep 22, 2006brilliant, stunning, exeptional masterpiece of extreme proportions.
JohnLJul 24, 2006The album before this was their greatest, but this is terrific in a very different way, and stands out more than what followed (which is/was still good don't get me wrong). These folks are as interesting a band as their is in America (the only thing I prefer is a dou called Rasa), and so it's been for the last 10-15 years.
JimBMar 27, 2005A sublime masterpiece! And perfect for "summer night" listening. Could be Yo La Tengo's best album.
