  • Summary: Bob Weston produced this third studio album for the Louisville indie rockers.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 9
  2. Negative: 0 out of 9
  1. A sprawling tour de force... It overwhelms you with its brawny rhythms, its artful arrangements and foggy atmosphere, and its thrilling instrumentation.
  2. Dense soundscapes that seemingly start in progress and stretch invisibly, yet infinitely, in all directions. [Apr 2005, p.118]
  3. An album riddled with unbreathable energy and high-strung despair.
  4. 80
    An enjoyable switchback ride through instrumental post-rock riff-making and full-on angst-ridden rocking out. [May 2005, p.87]
  5. The proceedings, though, are not without occasionally lesser moments and that’s something that fans of Save Everything and Very Soon may be surprised to hear.
  6. Mueller has traded in his visceral post-punk riffs for something more cerebral, and ultimately less satisfying.
