    Some are already calling it a landmark. This year's 'Deserter's Songs' or 'Soft Bulletin'. In truth it's probably better than both of those records.

    Instantly engaging, and totally engrossing over time.
  3. It Still Moves is the kind of album that can inspire both wonder and respect in equal measures.
  4. It Still Moves courts the easygoing, the wistful, and the devastating all at once, and the group's strange, wonderful gift is that it understands how those three moods are all shades of the same blue.

    At 72 minutes, the gorgeous gloom of It Still Moves lasts a bit longer than it has to--but it offers a host of tarnished gems along the way. [Sep 2003, p.126]
  6. When they're on, though, they're on, and although this album doesn't quite reach the heights that their earlier At Dawn does, it's still a great disc from a young group who will be making even more noise in the future.
  7. He claims his Dave Matthews-sponsored major- label debut was his chance to make a true band record, and I guess his boys are trickier than Crazy Horse, just not in any way you haven't heard before.

    Just realized that I had never rated/reviewed It Still Moves-- one of my favorite albums of the 00's. Evokes great classic southern rock while sounding natural, rather than the forced imitation that a lot of their current peers in the genre fall into. Expand
