  • Summary: A true solo effort, this self-titled release finds the 25-year-old Kweller handling all of the instrumentation himself for the first time.

  1. Positive: 16 out of 20
  2. Negative: 0 out of 20
  1. This is the 25-year-old singer-songwriter at his most personal. [Oct 2006, p.208]
  2. 82
    Effortless pop with an undenaible solo-era Stephen Malkmus quality that just makes you want to go on a long drive. [#22, p.100]
  3. When the music is this good, it just doesn’t matter much how many times you’ve heard this style before. [#15]
  4. He finally seems to be getting the hang of things. [Oct 2006, p.122]
  5. A beautiful, touching collection of songs, and one which marks an important rite of passage in one man’s career, even if it doesn’t always feel like his best work.
  6. Ben Kweller may not sum up Kweller, but it’s a worthy personal statement from a popster whose chops keep getting better.
  7. It seems to me that this album has already been made countless times by countless bands.
