  • Summary: Producer and Beastie Boys collaborator Mark Ramos-Nishita returns with a solo vocal-driven album, his first release in nearly six years (and his first output for Jack Johnson's label).
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 12
  2. Negative: 0 out of 12
  1. A collection of crisp, melodic pop tunes that showcase not only his musical abilities, but his vocal skills as well. [Mar 2007, p.145]
  2. 70
    More of the breezy, lo-fi indie pop that aligns Mark in the Elephant Six canon of pretty-pretty flights of fancy. [Mar 2007, p.101]
  3. An album for breakups and recoveries. [#17, p.99]
  4. A loose, warm, and human-scale record that sounds pretty nice right out of the gate.
  5. We find exquisite Beatles-indebted pop, moments of effortless lyrical and melodic brilliance and a few tunes which drift dangerously close to easy listening.
  6. 60
    There is little to these songs besides Mark's Lennon-like voice and an unobtrusive piano and guitar. [Apr 2007, p.113]
  7. Mark appears disarmingly buoyant, his lyrics so humdrum that it's hard to take his pain entirely seriously. [Apr 2007, p.120]
