  1. My Dark Places captures the offbeat brilliance that made the TVPs indie legends in the 70s, characterised by Treacy’s endearingly slapdash attitude towards singing in tune and playing in time.
  2. Much of My Dark Places is uncomfortable listening, Treacy's self-pity confers an additional tragic cast on the songs and the music rattles and creaks somewhere between lo-fi and inept.
  3. Mojo

    A clumsily executed, ghoulishly self-regarding mess. [Mar 2006, p.94]
  4. Rolling Stone

    Isn't songful enough to recommend to anyone besides old fans and aspiring art rockers. [6 Apr 2006, p.69]
  5. Spin
    58
    A stark, erratic, and perversely back-loaded collection. [Mar 2006, p.96]
