  2. Negative: 1 out of 8
  1. If you like smart, complicated rock and roll that nevertheless puts on a show, they are as good as it gets.
  2. Other records from 2003 have been more innovative and certainly heavier, but Easy Listening is so golden, so upbeat and so perfectly right out of the Midwest's sleeper hotbed of rock that it simply sounds bigger than life.
  3. Alternative Press
    Easy Listening has enough great riffs for Big Star and Cheap Trick to share, with leftovers to spare. [Jun 2003, p.103]
  4. 70
    Cobra Verde embrace classic-rock posturing with all of its messy emotional overreach, wanky-yet-tasteful guitar solos and bombastic songcraft.
  5. Magnet
    As subtle as, and harder than, a flying mallet. [#58, p.84]
  6. Unfortunately, about halfway through the album, the sound wears itself out, as the samey melodies edge towards the too-familiar.
