  1. [It] would be a shame for you to miss.
  2. 84
    No explanation needed--it's just great. [#25, p.96]
  3. Thee More Shallows' pop fans might yearn for more mellifluous melodies - their hip hop heads for more doctored beats - but in this "Book Of Bad Breaks", they're clearly on the same page.
  4. Songs bleed into each other and meander all over, underscoring David Kesler's spidery writing with crackling, sample-laced arrangements.
  5. 70
    The adventure slightly disappoints. [Apr 2007, p.108]
  6. What it does has pretty much been done before -- but it's done well, and done right, and in the end, it's successful.
  7. 40
    This treads the thin line between appealing whimsy and finicky, smartypants noodling. [Jun 2007, p.111]
