    Here are miasmic, dizzyingly gorgeous songs built on the grandest and most romantic, but steadied by the hand of hook-loving classicists. Bravo! [Mar 2010, p.90]

    Rarely has whimsical weirdness been done with such finesse.

    Their album Eggs was recorded in settings ranging from cathedrals to bathtubs, and has as broad of a stylistic range, evoking comparisons to both MGMT and Billy Corgan. But their grandiosity anchors the record.
  4. Eggs is a revelation, a pop album that remains accessible and melodically brilliant while pushing the musical envelope to the brink. [Holiday 2009, p.77]
  5. With Eggs, Oh No Ono have created an album that, like Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavilion this time last year, allows you to forget the last vestiges of snow outside and look towards the summertime.
  6. Somehow, all this variety works well more often than not.
  7. Even when it slides and swivels to defy all definition, Eggs can be remarkably engaging if given the chance of repeat listens.
  8. This isn't the kind of stuff you're going to walk around humming. It's too weirdly shaped to really abide in you--you have to be willing lose yourself in it instead.
  9. Down to the minute details, epic pop should center on creating a tiny, vibrant world that begins and ends within the space of the song, and Eggs’ best songs truly achieve this aim.

    There is much to love here, just as much to hate, and nothing to be indifferent about. [Mar 2010, p.99]
