  • Summary: This is the fourth album for the Minnesota punk band.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 5
  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. All that needs to be said is that C I V I L W A R was well worth the wait.
  2. It's their most glossy, most consistent, most calm, and surprisingly, their most socially relevant album, despite their approach toward middle age on a teen-oriented punk playground.
  3. The album is mostly interchangeable with its predecessors, right down to the silly samples that bookend the songs.
  4. Civil War shows a band that's matured in some typical ways-- as if anyone was clamoring for "broadened perspective" from these guys-- and some unexpected and not unwelcome ones.
  5. Alternative Press

    While the album has bright spots, overall it feels a bit dull and without the spark that made 1998's "Midwestern Songs Of The Americas" so fresh and exciting. [Dec 2008, p.132]
