  1. Furr is country-chic posturing that works from a distance: as twangy background music for those elites who watch their politics on MSNBC.
  2. To the band’s credit, the album does warm-up to the listener with consecutive listens, but Blitzen Trapper will have to play some reputable live shows in order to distinguish themselves from the indie rock masses.

    There's enough diverse material here and in the past to build your own army of darkness. [Fall 2008, p.74]
  4. They’ve topped up every track with so many hooks and contemporary indie rock clichés that their new songs sometimes go right past catchy into corny.

    Boring! I don't care how great the lyrics are if the music puts me to sleep.

    Wild Mountain Nation may still be their best album, but my god, can they craft a great rock album.
