  1. Mojo
    Though the detail in these blurred vignettes sometimes upstages the foreground, the moments of magic make the odd longueur worth enduring. [Sep 2004, p.95]
  2. The Wire
    [Forster] leans perilously close to airbrushed AOR when left too much to his own devices, but mostly the intoxicating richness and unashamed opulence of their epic space rock wins through. [#247, p.70]
  3. For all the glitzy sonic veneer -- echoed vocals, swirling, effect-laden guitars, time-travel keyboards -- the album never sacrifices the heart of the song.
  4. For as honest and beguiling as Foster's almost feminine falsetto might be, the themes being touched upon and, more importantly, the way in which Forster dabs at them so simply... causes this otherwise fine artistic expression to be slandered significantly.
  5. What For Stars lack in originality they overcompensate for in emotionality.
  6. Jumping on the Radiohead bandwagon a couple years too late, For Stars' It Falls Apart cops so much of their sound and style it is almost ridiculous.

    Strange one. Great songs and useless noises.... It's still emotionally challenging and interesting anyway
