  • 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. 80
    The perfect soundtrack for a late Sunday night. [Jan/Feb 2005, p.96]
  4. 70
    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. "Different Days" manages to be sleepy without being lazy and sad without being depressing.
  6. 66
    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. 40
    The mournful tone is seductive, but at times the femme melodrama teeters into All About Eve territory. [Feb 2005, p.83]
