    Great album! It doesn't sound like Sonic Youth, the dissonances are gone, the experimentation too. However, the songwriting is superb. And lyrics are mostly good. If you know who Lee Ranaldo is and you want to find out this record, you will probably like it! Recommended!

    It's great to hear the third voice in Sonic Youth stretching out. But it's also a reminder of their irreplaceable magic.
  2. Just the album you'd hope from a thoughtful 56-year-old after his band of 30 years breaks up.

    It's a surprisingly luxuriant record. [Mar 2012, p.58]
