Alternative PressIt's a thing of subversive beauty, a striking debut that's self-assured and captivating. [Mar 2004, p.104]
SpinLike a Postal Service for hippies living off the grid. [May 2004, p.108]
Entertainment WeeklyThe mournful harmonies and orchestral sweetening on some tracks... spread a seductively decadent sheen over the oddly uplifting proceedings. [27 Feb 2004, p.98]
BlenderA casual, mostly charming sketchbook of diffident alt-country laments. [Mar 2004, p.116]
Peppered with dissatisfying, mommy-daddy emotastic lyrics, Jeff Tweedy impressions, and Four Tet-inspired, stop-on-a-dime, into-something-totally-unrelated segues that don't really belong on a country-twinged "let's hang out, drink, and make a record, dudes" kind of affair.
Positive: 4 out of 4
