  1. The tracks are both individually strong and do work as a whole, though not in the way the group necessarily intended.
  2. In Our Bedroom After The War is better than expected even as it wallows in its own broken heart.
  3. With In Our Bedroom... Stars are rewriting the textbook on romance with effortless glee.
  4. Despite the melodrama, the LP's perfectly done, every note in place.

    In Our Bedroom After The War aims for a more dramatic sweep than its predecessor but falls a couple tunes short. [Nov 2007, p.108]
  6. They are at their best when bandleader Torquil Campbell and muse Amy Millan share the mic. [Nov 2007, p.147]
  7. 50
    Not Stars’ best, and far from their worst, but an album’s worth of the usual string-laden drama-pop seems a thin substitute for what today’s kids are seeking.
