    Despite the uneven tone of the record, the sloppiness of some tracks ("Bandwitch", "Windsurfing Nation"), the pretentiousness of the lyrics of almost all the songs, this is a pretty good follow up to YFIIP, and nearly tops it. Love it. BSS is one of my fave bands ever.

  1. A richly textured collection of songs that further explore the possibilities of the group's grooving dream-pop blueprint but stays just weird enough not to attract the ear of mainstream radio.

    The album's plush and detailed enough to invite extensive exploration, and varied enough to not get exhausting. [Oct 2005, p.135]
  3. This exercise in excess makes the ambitious You Forgot It in People seem positively understated by comparison.
