  1. Too familiar, too gloomy and too bland.
  2. The Perishers fail to elevate their brand of minimalism beyond the politely unobtrusive and fatally unmemorable. [Apr/May 2005, p.149]
  3. The Perishers' second full-length album is, well, rather bland.
  4. As simple and dopey as Bright Eyes' I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning, only sleepier.
  5. It is not an offensive album by any means, on the contrary, much of it is very, very nice. This is stuff that mom will like, that you can play at work and nobody will notice.

    I also saw them last night with Sarah McLachlan (Halifax show), and they were very good. My best friend bought the CD and had them sign it too.
