    Every once in a while, the album offers a flash of something ancient, mysterious--a foreboding glimpse behind the curtain of the human psyche at some truth so cavernous, frightening and hard-to-grasp that we can’t normally focus our eyes long enough to see it.

    Sometimes less is more, and Like Rats offers up considerable proof.

    Any record that emphasizes variety will have a few tracks that fall just outside the artist's reach; not everything works quite so well, although that has more to do with song choice than execution.

    It’s an interesting collection that lends itself equally well to both intellectual deconstruction and simply listening.

    It's lovely, it's almost moving until you remember what you're listening to, but it's hugely inessential.

    [Like Rats proved] Kozelek could turn his wry tone to any old thing and make it lovely. [Mar 2013, p.73]
