    All the better to hear the magnificent storytelling on "Shankill Butchers," the gentlest hymn ever written about throat slashers. [9 Aug 2011, p.75]
  2. iTunes Sessions does it again with a rewarding little surprise that none of us were really anticipating, but are plenty glad to add to the collection

    They attack their back catalog with relish, jamming on jangly gems from this year's The King Is Dead, and breathing fresh life into older tunes.

    The EP's lackluster tracklist leaves iTunes Session seeming clunky and unrepresentative--like it's not a full set, but an excerpt from a larger show.

    Eight cuts from the bookish indie rockers, including early favorites.

    There seems to be a real paucity of creativity within the band right now, a flaw that the iTunes Session EP, with its almost exact recreation of album cuts, all but makes more real and palatable.
