  • Summary: The debut album for the Canadian trio who were members of the band P:ano.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 10
  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. At its core, throughout the course of Come Into My House, No Kids remain a group of talented musicians with excellent, compelling ideas.
  2. The fact of the matter is, despite lesser numbers, they have demonstrated progression as artists.
  3. Less busy instrumentally than P:ano, the band still deals out polyrhythms generously and peppers its tunes with a vast arsenal of instruments that include expansive lap steel, woodwinds, and string and horn sections.
  4. The album could use a little more of Fitzgerald's fiery extremes, and a bit less of meandering disappointments like "You Looked Good to Me" or "Dancing in the Stacks", but at its best it's a clever piece of musical storytelling by a band unintimidated by genre.
  5. Heady swirl, indeed: much of Come Into My House unfolds with all the knacker-shrivelling underwhelmingness of a tepid bath.

    Music this insistently okay should suffice as sonic Paxil, but there are less complicated ways to treat your depression. [Apr 2008, p.102]
