  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. What's best about this album, and what makes it better than anything the Apples have yet to accomplish, is how it recalls the fact that in the '60s, pop was more desegregated than it is here in the age of narrowcasting... [Record of the Week pick]
  5. At once infectious and challenging, complex and direct, The Discovery Of A World Inside The Moone represents the new standard for those seeking to carry the torch lit by the Beatles and Beach Boys.

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