    I love Superchunk, and at the time I was listening to this, I was also revisiting No Pocky for Kitty. 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.

    a fine return to the marketplace. the trademark hooks and power pop melodies are there, as is the energy.
    Some of the years stand out runes, in My Gap Feels Weird and Crossed Wires.

  1. The hoarse, throaty voice knows its consonants, and the lyrics are full of the everyday breakdowns most of us survive into midlife and beyond.

    Put this against 1994's acclaimed Foolish or 2001's Here's to Shutting Up, and it stands on its own, a reminder that Superchunk is still doing it better than most new bands today.

    With Majesty Shredding, the group toggles between what once was and where it wants to be, bringing back punk and infusing it with a whole lotta pop. [Fall 2010, p.96]
