    Whether you're at home alphabetizing your record collection or marking time in your car while stuck in a traffic gridlock, throw this album on if you haven't been rocked enough lately.

    What the Obits do reasonably but not remarkably well isn't as important as where they excel on Moody, Standard and Poor, and when the pieces mesh just right, this band does guitar back-and-forth as well as anyone since Television, and rocks a whole lot harder to boot.

    Don't be fooled by any revivalist tosh out at the moment, this really is the real deal. [26 Mar 2011, p.52]

    The songs are powerfully wiry and declamatory.

    No matter what band he's playing with, Froberg has always had a great ear for guitar tones, and here, he and second guitarist/vocalist Sohrab Habibion whittle down their instruments into scythes, dialing down their more surfy tendencies in favor of guitars that lurk during the verses and slice only at the most opportune moments for maximum impact.

    Obits' second album, Moody, Standard, And Poor, could use a little less logic and a lot more shock.

    Their no-frills shtick excites in small doses. [Apr 2011, p.89]
