UncutLaced with enough blue-eyed longing to make the most diehard Gram Parsons fan weep with wonder and the sort of verbal acuity that would give even Dylanologists pause for thought, Elephant is where the tabloid phenomenon of summer 2001 prove they are no flash in the pan by making a truly phenomenal record. [May 2003, p.94]
Q MagazineA record sufficiently impressive to suggest that White Blood Cells caught Jack and Meg using only a fraction of their talents. [Apr 2003, p.98]

MattFeb 16, 2004Some people think they know everything, and they don't. The critics are right IMO on this album. The first half is classic, in fact.
RonGSep 14, 2005Hmm...Some great songs, too many that don't deserve the hype. White Blood Cells is far better.
