  1. Songwriting and production throwbacks granted, the Apples send the repackage down a new stretch of road with full-throttle performances and the soon-to-be legendary pipes of singer Robert Schneider.
  2. Once in a while, a record will come out that's simply perfect... their finest record to date - pure, gleeful pop virtuosity.
  3. Lyrics swirl around sensibly and the formidable tunesmithing never goes down the drain.
  4. 80
    Though the shadows of Wilson and Lennon/McCartney loom large over this latest psyche-pop platter, the Apples tap into a tradition of classic pop songwriting rather than merely plagiarising their ancestors.
  5. For, as derivative and daft as The Apples are, it's impossible, like a scowling adolescent laughing at the antics of his irritating kid brother, to hate them.
  6. 70
    Their playing is loaded with the confidence of established veterans.
  7. 50
    For the first half of the album, this tested formula works as well as ever.... Moone runs out of flavor, however, when the Apples trade colorful and ebullient for derivative and listless.

    Simply beautiful songs with catchy tunes and well arranged. They are no inventing nothing, but I don't care.
