  • Summary: This is the latest album for the indie rock trio from Portland, Oregon.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 10
  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. The album showcases their massive creativity and playfulness and is a fitting testament to the power of pop music to move your heart and head as well as your feet.
  2. Nurses are a psychedelic freak-folk trio from Portland with ridiculous facial hair. But Apple’s Acre is also very, very good.
  3. Apple's Acre sounds homemade in the best possible way. It is a quality that speaks to not only the intimacy of the recording, but also the confidence and comfort that Nurses now have in their delicately shambolic sound.
  4. They’ve clearly been listening, and taking notes. But between the blatantly derivative style of basically every song and the inherently specious nature of their source material, it’s hard to really take anything they’re saying or playing seriously.
  5. With primarily organic instrumentation and warm, low-fi production, nothing is forced--although in some instances, the tracks feel a little too barren, and overall there's not much to distinguish between the songs. [Sep 2009, p.108]
  6. 60
    Nonsensical, inventive and captivating. [Sep 2009, p.89]
  7. Nurses proceed to provide exactly what is expected of them and what their audience presumably expects.
