  1. 92
    This is the best Grandaddy record thus far. [#19, p.92]
  2. If this is Lytle’s last musical missive, he’s left us with a complete, if unfocused, dossier of his genius.
  3. 80
    Everything now seems as worn out and used up as Lytle's subjects, along with the imagery that brings them to life. [Jun 2006, p.108]
  4. Just Like the Fambly Cat, even more than Grandaddy's past works, carries the weight of death.
  5. It's a likeable little niche that Lyttle has carved out for himself in the indie-pop landscape, and, as he bids adieu to Grandaddy, one hopes that he continues to explore this style in ways that are more challenging than parts of Cat.
  6. 60
    Equal parts bang and whimper. [Jun 2006, p.81]
  7. Fambly Cat just serves to underscore how good Grandaddy has been by rehashing without improving or building.
