    I really like this band and this album does not disappoint. Has some really catchy lyrics and great vocals. Some of his vocals remind me of the Beatles and give some real nice tone to the songs and gives some real classic sounds.

    Best album from Portugal. The Man to date. Really spectacular throughout, not a misstep to be found. This album will certainly gain the band some new fans with a diverse array of influences apparent in each song.

    For In the Mountain in the Cloud, they piled on the mascara, set the way-back machine for 1972 and turned out 11 tracks full of vintage glam-rock pouting and preening.

    Though it never quite matches up, the album does an admirable job of working to capture the incredible fun of Portugal's live show. [Jul 2011, p.87]

    With a bevy of somewhat indistinguishable tunes, a production aesthetic that keeps everything front, center, and earsplitting is a problem.
