    The earlier albums were hyper and hi-energy affairs whereas Jumping The Tracks is more measured and has a more constructed feel.

    Jumping The Tracks is a most welcome return to the glorious gloom the group has cultivated from the very start. [No. 107, p.56]

    Without mellowing too deeply or becoming so serious that the songs aren't fun to listen to anymore, +/- turn in a fantastically studio-crafted album that communicates greater depth and more sophistication than any of their other work.

    Pensive and engaging, Jumping The Tracks is the quintessential headphones record that gets better with each listen. [Mar 2014, p.88]

    This record is boring.
