    Imagine a math-rock XTC fronted by Elliott Smith, illuminating the quiet corners of life. [Mar 2007, p.94]
  2. With Living Well, Rob Crow has created some of his finest work.
  3. [It] sounds more like a continuation of Pinback's 2004 high-water mark, "Summer in Abaddon." This is, of course, a good thing. [27 Jan 2007]
  4. He sounds rushed, like he doesn't have time for too much tinkering. This is a good thing.
  5. Much of Living Well stands among Crow's best work because he sticks to what he knows and what he does best: oddball pop music.

    An endearing solo effort with a higher percentage of hits to misses than 2003's My Room Is A Mess. [#75, p.96]
  7. An album that, much like Pinbackā€™s 2004 full-length Summer in Abaddon, is more immediate in its appeal but suffers from repeated listens.
