Critic score distribution:

  2. Negative: 0 out of 15
  1. Most of the songs are well constructed and do not outstay their welcome, though a few do not make the grade.
  2. So while it may not be the revelation that Hot Snakes was after Drive Like Jehu, Obits still has plenty of life to it, and enough twists in Rick Froberg’s sound to keep things interesting.

    It's bold and gimmick-free--proof there's no shame in covering old ground. [May 2009, p.116]
  4. Uncut

    The result is a record not in step with any particular fashion, but, on songs like 'Talking To The Dog,' you get choppy and catchy with rare raw-knuckle skill. [May 2009, p.92]
  5. Under The Radar
    50
    Most of these songs, while energetically played, have a disposable quality that the band's enthusiasm can't overcome. [Spring 2009, p.77]
