  1. Both expansive and dreamy. [23 Jun 2006, p.69]
  2. Angst has rarely sounded sweeter than it does on "Ganging Up on the Sun," which swirls with classic vocal harmonies, vintage organs and lightly strummed guitars.
  3. Ganging Up on the Sun is the work of a band who matters.
  4. 70
    With the band's pop instincts craftier than ever, these songs might even reach past the keg party. [Jul 2006, p.84]
  5. Guster's loudest and most ambitious effort to date.
  6. The album is often as strong as Fountains Of Wayne's Welcome Interstate Managers.
  7. This is just a good album--and at the end of the day, sometimes that’s all you need.

    Guster fans should be happy. Solid effort. These songs seem to have a more mature and grounded sound to them. Munch on Satellite and Dear Guster fans should be happy. Solid effort. These songs seem to have a more mature and grounded sound to them. Munch on Satellite and Dear Valentine, very satisfying!!! Expand
