  • Summary: This long-delayed fourth album sees the New York garage rockers jumping to a new label.

  1. Positive: 2 out of 10

  1. Mercy's rootsy, rueful tunes have a pleasant, low-key feel. [22 Jun 2007, p.69]
  2. An honest, humble, rootsy record that shows the band maturing.
  3. On the whole, the songs are more tuneful and airy and less spastic than previous riot-on-the-stage efforts. [Mar 2007, p.143]
  4. While the first album by the “new” Mooney Suzuki might be a step up from their last record, Alive & Amplified... it’s a far far cry from the exciting sounds of their glory days.
  5. Unfortunately, “almost as good as Steve Miller” is about as good as things get.
  6. 10
    Soul-free, thirdhand melodies housed in songs that any halfway decent bar band would reject without a second pass. [Feb 2007, p.85]
