  1. The Magnolia Electric Co. succeeds where other albums of a similar nature fail because it has the courage to point towards what is wrong with itself and the medium through which it is presented.
  2. It takes a colossal effort to back Molina's candor, and given what a departure this record is for the band, it's not surprising that some of the songs get bogged down here and there. It's also not much of a problem.
  3. Magnolia Electric Company is a watershed album, an artistic breakthrough, and the first album to fully realize Molina's potential.

    Songs: Ohia's better produced album is a real masterpiece. An introspective country-folk rock album in the line of Neil Young's influences that could be considered as one of the best albums of the first halkf of the decade. It has it all: variety, cohesion, great instrumentations, powerfull vocals mixed with polished arrangements, but still with a raw rock sound. A unique album. Full Review »
