  1. Though their words suggest such weighty topics, the album remains sonically airy. It might get tense, but it's never dense.
  2. Disparate though its individual elements may seem (and they certainly are), the sum of the parts is remarkably cohesive.
  3. Kinsella and his crew finally seem to have found a way of expressing themselves that doesn't feel introverted and exclusive.
  4. While Joan of Arc’s latest is a relative failure as an album when compared to everything else coming out in indie-rock these days (dropping them under .500 in my book), it is a winning effort, relative to the whole of the Joan of Arc/Tim Kinsella catalog.
