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

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

    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.

    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.

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

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