  1. The Starlight Mints weren't excessively ambitious in the studio and the coolness of Built on Squares makes for a pleasant listen while capturing a band in the making.

    The problem is that the half-hour Squares is as unfocused and repetitive as a double album. [#59, p.108]

    Incredible album. I don't know how it could be rated so low by All Music Guide. I love it.
