  • Summary: The mysterious San Francisco-based artists--who have been at it now for over 30 years--return with a collection of vaguely animal-themed tracks.

  1. A beautiful concept that's been beautifully executed.
  2. Going "conventional" may be the strangest move the Residents have ever made. [May 2005, p.178]
  3. 80
    By turns oblique, soulful, scornful yet rarely dissonant. Rather, it's one of their lovelier, more formal offerings. [Mar 2005, p.108]
  4. Not for the unquesting. [Mar 2005, p.101]
  5. 60
    Fans will wallow in the superficial nuttiness of it all--though profound issues underlie the wilful eccentricity. [Mar 2005, p.96]
  6. 60
    Dystopia pop at its most intriguing. [May 2005, p.93]
  7. For better or for worse, the rest of the music world has caught up with them. [#9]
