  • Summary: The New York City band releases its latest EP ahead of its full-length album, "The Crying Light."
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 11 out of 14
  2. Negative: 0 out of 14
  1. The whole of the album is stunning and unique, and if the thematic gender-bending core of the album makes a few people ideologically shy away, then it's truly a shame.
  2. If we are going to go, the magnificently mournful title track of this EP may as well be the soundtrack.
  3. From the tentative piano chords that open the gorgeous title track, the EP never wavers from a tone of frail melancholy, sketching out a handful of dirges in arrangements that are unusually spare by The Johnsons' standards. [Year End 2008, p.88]
  4. This EP, a teaser of what to expect from the full-length album scheduled for January, sees the vocalist reining in some of his more histrionic tendencies while expanding his palette of influences and sounds.
  5. 70
    'Shake the Devil' purrs with a Ray Charles-worthy retro R&B beat and the furious nonvegan chorus of 'Shake that Pig!' [Nov 2008, p.88]
  6. Maybe not an essential purchase, but if you're already counting the days down until the official third album The Crying Light is released in January, this should more than satisfy you.
  7. Another World is only for the devoted. [Jan 2008, p.124]
