  1. At Mount Zoomer is a tremendous success.
  2. All in all, At Mount Zoomer is a remarkable achievement, and another soon-to-be classic from Wolf Parade.
  3. Although "Queen Mary" was a strong showing, At Mount Zoomer--named for the band's recording space--is an instant classic, distancing itself from indie rock's skin-deep quirks on the way to something grander and more enduring.
  4. At Mount Zoomer will give you those same goosebumps you felt when you heard the band’s debut.

    Zoomer has none of the power and intensity of Apologies to the Queen Mary. There are some nice tracks (Fine Young Cannibals), but I was Zoomer has none of the power and intensity of Apologies to the Queen Mary. There are some nice tracks (Fine Young Cannibals), but I was mostly disappointed. I don't know if its a product of the songwriting, the recording or the mixing, but it sounded flat to me.
