Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 5
  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. 82
    After seven years of experiementing, Petersen has found his niche. [Winter 2009, p.100]
  2. It's all unabashedly bizarre, but that's what makes it good. [Apr 2009, p.142]
  3. So Joel Peterson’s new-and-improved side project still resembles a guitarist experimenting in between what is probably his more important job.
  4. His songs are built around solid hooks and show enough dynamism to keep the listener from hitting the ‘next’ button, but when the album is through playing, there’s no pressing need to hit ‘play’ again.
  5. Much of the record blurs into a monochromatic lull, plodding listlessly despite Peterson's fastidious production. [Spring 2009, p.76]
