  1. With the multifarious tributaries flowing effortlessly into the whole, I Thought I Was Over That has a diverse coherence that is hard to define and establishes itself as a distinct entity in its own right.
  2. The compilation will not alter your opinions of Lali Puna. But between the new material and older cuts previously scattered across numerous singles and compilations,I Thought I Was Over That is something fans old and new will want to have around.
  3. Coats your ears like a warm blanket. [#10, p.111]
  4. There is no shortage of experimentation here.
  5. Sadly, the album's consistency is also its failing; you can only take so much softness... before you're just listening to elevator music, and after 19 tracks that's what this becomes.
  6. Manages to contain enough surprise turns and twists... to keep you interested. [25 Jun 2005, p.64]
  7. Sleepy, sporadic and inconsistent.

    Although the remixes get a little tiresome, the "new" content is quite good.

    i totally agree with RIchard H, the remixes are average (although To Rococo Rot's remix of Grin and Bear is fantastic), but the b-sides, rare tracks and new ones are amazing. Past Machine is my favorite track here and I hope the new Lali Puna recordings are as krautrock as this song. Expand
