    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.

    Psychedelic frontier rock that hits all the right spots better than the average Joe six-pack on a weekend when he feels like being the most generous of lovers.

    Great cd..sounds like neil young in outer space, with weird keyboard parts..like a toy keyboard..good stuff though.

    What it lacks in urgency compared to Wild Mountain Nation it more than makes up with a country/rock solid sound throughout. Give Furr time to grow on you.

  1. Blitzen Trapper's first release for Sub Pop doesn't just improve upon the promise of WMN, it expands its sonic horizons as well, narrowing the mixtape glee that fueled its predecessor with just enough maturity to lend it considerable weight.
  2. While there isn’t anything as blisteringly heavy as 'Woof & Warp of the Quiet Giant’s Hem,' as gritty and grimy as 'Miss Spiritual Tramp,' or even as trippy and psychedelic as 'Hot Tip/Tough Cub,' there is still plenty to love on Furr.
  3. It’s good where it has to be good and it hits the notes it’s supposed to, but other than that it’s tough to find Furr inspiring in any way, especially with such a specifically backwards-looking strategy employed.
