    Even at their most psychedelic on Golden Age, Grandchildren remain a memorably melodic, utterly listenable band.

    The replay value requires a couple of things: some sort of ear for harmony, and the utmost confidence that the feeling will remain universal, even when the sounds are not. Golden Age almost never forgets to bring both.

    Golden Age mines that elusive ground between the way things were and the way they're remembered, set to hypnotic acoustic and electronic instrumentation. [No.99, p.55]

    “Golden Age” and “End Times” feature some well-honed orchestrations that amplify what could otherwise be fairly rote pieces.... It’s a shame, then, to see the rest of Golden Age spin off into divergent, less interesting directions for the remainder of its runtime.
