    An experimental, sensual collection of songs harking back to the days of the first Gorky's EPs. [Mar 2006, p.104]
  2. An album of varied pop beauty, both jubilant and affecting. [#16, p.96]
  3. It's not the best thing he's ever done, but it's up there with it.
  4. The album's overall flow and structure is decidedly disjointed, with a scattering of tiny, demo-quality tracks adding virtually nothing to the record.
  5. 'Chops' isn't wholly disastrous, but it's all too often a reminder that, for roughly his first decade onstage, Childs was an infuriatingly insular and mildly indulgent performer, and it now appears that he was able to make such genuinely fantastic records in spite of that because of the healthy influence of his band-mates.
  6. There's still no getting over the patchiness. [Mar 2006, p.106]
  7. 40
    Not wholly satisfying. [Mar 2006, p.102]
