    To say I was pleasantly surprised by this album is an understatement. This is actually my favourite TMBG album to date and one of my favourites of the year. If you're a fan then you'll love the masses of catchy tunes which see them not only back to their best; but also recapturing the energy an quirkyness of years gone by. For people just getting into the band, this is as good as place to start as their first four albums.

    To summarise, this whole planet is elip- sorry, To summarise, it's brilliant. 8.7. Rounded up to nine.

    It's a riot of scattershot styles. [Jun 2013, p.81]
  2. Overlooking the nine subminute snippets‑-most annoying even at that length, with bows to the nine-second "Tick" and the 24-second closer‑-that leaves 16 songs that pretend to be songs, including one A plus, two clear A minuses, and six close enoughs.
  3. Things are less enjoyable when musical boundaries are pushed--and at 25 songs long, albeit with nine of them shorter than a minute, it’s a joke that wears thin.
