    If you are not experimental music fans - most of the material on album you'll just pass by. In another case, on "Beard, Wives, Denim" you will find the best alternative rock format. Fancy-catchy melodies, guitar solos that are holding fashion - nay, even psychedelic vocal resonance is included in the budget of "carefree" form.

    Some songs on here are leaps and bounds better than what you will find on Innerspeaker. However, this album fails to hold up with consistency. Some songs drag on far too long, and others are just shoddy.

    It's different enough to feel like a companion piece rather than a knock-off: less laboured over, more the sound of a rock band kicking back, and less alienated.

    A fair amount of cosmic fannying involved, but this is framed by some cracking songwriting. [Jul 2012, p.79]

    Pond's music leans a little more joyous, perhaps, and is more infused with glam and classic rock [than sister band, Tame Impala.] [March 2012, p.79]
