    The pure-pop masterpiece everyone knew McCaughey had in him. [#49, p.84]
  2. The Minus 5, featuring Peter Buck, rely on a few chords and gentle harmonies, especially on standouts "Got You" and "You Don't Mean It." [3/2/01, p.70]
  3. The disc evokes both the heartbreak and the buoyancy of bands like Big Star and Teenage Fanclub.
  4. The Minus 5 record really works when it gets close to power pop, such as "Got You," the sprightly "You Don't Mean It" and the wistful "A Thousand Years Away."
  5. The best songs... are the ones heavily influened by the Posies' Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer. [#154, p.98]
