    Welcome to the Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain of our modern indie times. [Filter Mini, Oct 2005]
  2. Elephant Eyelash is fantastic, an indie rock record that nicely balances absurdity and directness, pop hooks with stoned weirdness.

    why? has done it again, after continually growing as an artist through multiple releases, he unleashes his tightest and most powerful album. full of indie, hip-hop, electronic, spoken word, poetry, and all around goodness. may not be for everyone, as most people are idiots, therefore if you like this album, you'll have passed my test.

    Absolute orgy for the ears. Wolf is a minor musical/poetic genius. Lyrics that unfurl slowly with each and every listen. Still prefer alopecia personally but both are extremely underrated/ undiscovered LP's. I love loving Why? is what I'm hear to say. Full Review »

    A captivating record which improves on each listen. The album has songs on it that just don't get old (like rubber traits) and little filler material. Wolf put a lot of time in creating the melodies on this record. Worth buying. Full Review »
