  • Summary: The moody Chicago group is down to two remaining members (Lindsay Anderson and Joseph Costa) on this third album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 11 out of 14
  2. Negative: 0 out of 14
  1. A genre-bowing indie masterpiece as gorgeous as anything released since Sigur Rós’ ( ).
  2. The impeccably crafted Different Days is at its best when it exploits the vocal strengths of Anderson and Costa.
  3. The themes of isolation, solitude and general soul-crushing existence makes it their most blatantly honest work and helps further reinforce the notion that this is their most fully realized and beautiful release to date.
  4. Magnet
    That Different Days is so listenable despite its flawed nature is testament to Costa and Anderson's wonderful songwriting and shrewd decisions. [Jan/Feb 2005]
  5. Both Costa and Lindsay Anderson have an uncanny ability to evoke multiple emotions through their lyrics. The downside seems to be their lack of range; all the songs feel the same.
  6. Filter
    The vocals veer a bit too far into tunelessness at times, but the music is gorgeously majestic, yet deceptively simple and stark. [#14, p.100]
  7. Uncut
    The mournful tone is seductive, but at times the femme melodrama teeters into All About Eve territory. [Feb 2005, p.83]
