  • Summary: 'C'mon' is the third full-length release for the experimental Chicago-based instrumental quartet.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 7
  2. Negative: 1 out of 7
  1. As Town And Country's move into mellow artists maturity, C'mon is an oasis of sensitive calm from our loutish world. [#217, p.61]
  2. You can listen to the disc over and over and never get bored; there's always a new musical idea to discover in a place that you didn't expect to hear it.
  3. 80
    This is a thing of deftly understated beauty from pillar to post. [Mar 2002, p.104]
  4. 70
    [Town and Country] have the compositional savvy and play with the precision to make such passages hypnotic rather than pretentious. [#54, p.110]
  5. 60
    T&C are more approachable than most, replacing numbing virtuosity with a kind of meditative warmth. [May 2002, p.110]
  6. A perfect chill-out album for those of an acoustic inclination. [Apr 2002, p.122]
  7. Lacking any dynamism, complexity, or invention, the relentless drone of most of these tracks is a shallow, reactionary statement to the progress of the post-rock genre, and completely unedifying.
