  1. When Sprout is both tuneful and coherent... he achieves pure bliss. [14 Mar 2003, p.67]
  2. It won't blow you away the first time, but it eventually will.
  3. Despite the diverse array of styles on display throughout Lost Planets..., this is Sprout's most cohesive set of songs to date.
  4. While the sound here is undeniably on the lo-fi side of the spectrum, the arrangements and production on the album seem more carefully crafted. The result is Sprout's best album in years.
  5. Sprout is doing a fine job of keeping his legacy untarnished. [Apr 2003, p.73]
  6. What he offers us here, though, are a couple of subtly layered, fully realized works of art and a handful of unfinished sketches.
  7. Probably one of indie rock's more dignified efforts of 2003.
