  1. A miniature classic. [14 Aug 2004, p.49]
  2. It has the same majesty and ethereal wonder contained in the best works of the Flaming Lips, Boo Radleys, My Bloody Valentine, Jesus and Mary Chain and Mercury Rev.

    The Radio Dept. recall that giddy moment before sounding like the Stones was considered revelatory. Only these Swedes re-tweak the formula, sounding, if anything, better than Ride, Slowdive, Lush, Boo Radleys et al. [Sep 2004, p.100]
  4. There's not much to tie it to the present day, but when the template is this well tuned that's no great problem. [Oct 2004, p.129]
  5. 70
    A charming glide of warm fuzz-pop that suffers only through their influences being worn perhaps too clearly upon their sleeves. [Oct 2004, p.101]

    This album is f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c. Theres nothing really out there right now that sounds like this, every song is catchy and never seems to get old. Hope they continue to make music just as great as this! Expand
