    This is only the 3rd album I've listened to by Deerhoof as I am just getting into them (the other two being The Runners Four and La Isla Bonita). But this is so far my favorite one. Every song blew me away. Very energetic and unpredictable. Basically every song is a knockout.

    They just feel more well honed this time around, conveying their music in simple, direct terms.

    Although Breakup Song may not be as focused as Deerhoof's best past efforts, its ideas are just as intense as the radiant semi-truck that appears on the album cover. [Oct/Nov 2012, p.128]

    Breakup Song brims variety, not just song to song, but moment to moment.
