    Quite a disappointing step back from It's a Wonderful Life. Hope Linkous will make up for that sooner or later

    Impressing is not a word btw. Anyway, this album is disappointing. Lulling melodies, lo-fi-ish production and frontal micd vocals a great album not make. I really miss the Good Morning Spider days.

    Most of these 12 songs... fall within the wistful to enchanting range. [Oct 2006, p.96]

    Ornate but unremarkable headphone listening. [Oct 2006, p.80]
  3. There are no earth-shattering changes to Linkous' studio-warped rock 'n' roll pastoralism. As there was nothing broken on previous Sparklehorse outings, there is little in need of fixing.
