  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. A few songs are experiments that should have stayed in the studio; "Left-Handed Dub" is dreadful and the remixes by Flowchart and Two Lone Swordsmen are a bit dated--too ‘90s-sounding. But that's still only one tenth of the album, the rest of which is a pleasure.
  3. Laid-back and largely instrumental glitch-pop. [Jul 2005, p.186]
  4. 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.

    Shows Lali Puna's more adventurous side. [Aug 2005, p.110]
  6. If it were condensed down to one disc, it would appeal to more than the most devout.
  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, 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
