    Listening to the ramalama of "Slow Drip" and "Hot Tubes" you can't help but cheer them on. [Nov 2010, p.102]
  2. All I did was press fast-forward, track after track. When that expectation of emotional articulation wasn't met, it brought up that feeling of outrage, as if somehow Superchunk let me down.

I like the way they've changed and haven't changed at the same time. The energy and sound is similar to the old days, but there is more shredding, and a fuller sound. Also, hooks abound, and that's perhaps the deal-maker on this, or any album I enjoy. Full Review »
