  • Summary: This is the second album for the group led by Bill Doss (formerly of Olivia Tremor Control), which mixes psychedelia and pop.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 7
  2. Negative: 1 out of 7
  1. It all holds together in a way the Olivia Tremor Control often didn't.
  2. Green Imagination succeeds because it rarely seems obvious or disingenuous, even as it indulges in copious quantities of shamelessly retro fun.
  3. Strays less into sound oddities and sticks more closely to the short-and-sweet pop formula... Pleasant but inessential.
  4. The harmonies aren't as blissful and the songs more conventional than those of previous releases.
  5. The Sunshine Fix occasionally slip into cringe-worthy ELO territory, but, for the most part, their sophomore release is a pleasing auditory adventure. [#7]
  6. It's surely a treat for fans of Olivia Tremor Control. But while interesting in its own way, the album is an inessential psychedelic-pop diversion for most everyone else.
  7. Green Imagination does awkwardly stumble into some redeeming moments, but never without a slog through the banal first.
