  1. Get Lonely is the product of a tunesmith on autopilot.
  2. Though the tunes themselves seem unassuming, based on conventional chord progressions and strumming patterns, that simplicity draws attention to Darnielle's fine songwriting.

    There's a kind of redemptive comfort even in the album's bleakest moments. [Sep 2006, p.91]
