    It can't quite measure up to the utter awesomeness that was Alopecia, but it stands on its own two feet rather well and is more heartfelt than a lot of their other work.

    This album is probably the most cohesive piece of art to ever come out of Yoni Wolf's brain. I love every song he's ever written and this record does not disappoint. Some people say it isn't as good as Alopecia, I say it is just as good but completely different.

  1. Eskimo Snow simply categorizes those words in a bit more careful, less adventurous fashion than Wolf and company have revealed before. While this latest release is quite literally the second side of the same coin (or recording session), it feels flatter.
  2. The understated songs are the most memorable here (and the least Why?-like), and it sort of makes me wish the rockier material were shelved so that the whole album could be tailored to this mood of graceful resignation.
  3. Does it work? Of course it works.
