    Musically Stew and Rodewald hit a new peak, deftly mixing the psychedelic pop that's TNP's usual stock-in-trade with the musical sophistication acquired from writing for Broadway.

    Like all Stew's work, the album jumps easily from genre to genre, but all the tunes are marked by strong melodies and Stewart's dense, literary lyrics.
  3. Mar 28, 2012
    It's more theatrical than early Stew albums, bringing the unique sense of a stage composition: varied instrumentation, clear evocative vocals and honest-to-goodness storytelling.
  4. Mar 28, 2012
    Too many songs here--such as the sour break-up anthem "Curse" and the "is all art autobiographical?" meditation "Pretend"--come off as overworked lyrically and underdeveloped musically.
