  1. The loveliest album of Pernice's pretty career.
  2. Does rediscovering what a guitar can do count as a bold new direction for Joe Pernice? Not so much. But it adds new hues to a near-flawless batch of sorrowful pop wonders, and ups the power of one of the best songwriters of his era.

    You just wonder how songs this miserable can sound so excruciatingly gorgeous. [Jul 2005, p.104]
  4. Less lush than their previous affairs, but still rich in Beach Boys-like vocal harmonies. [Jul 2005, p.120]
  5. 70
    A compelling exercise in craft. [Jul 2005, p.96]
  6. The album succeeds in creating a dreamy mood that is both soothing and slightly unsettling. And yet this mood is relentless, and, ultimately, all the songs begin to sound the same.
  7. Discover a Lovelier you isn't really even a bad album, only unremarkably OK.
