    An almost perfect Sunday-morning album that's hard not to praise with only the faintest of damns. [Dec 2012, p.94]

    If Brasstronaut's fans are willing to go along for the ride, Mean Sun will reward the patient.

    Brasstronaut don't leap between genres so much as they shuffle, but Mean Sun, at its best, is an album that quietly exhilarates.

    The standout tracks here are the most melancholy and experimental. [Nov 2012, p.71]
