    If the Big Sleep intended a record of 10 tracks designed explicitly to get listeners pumped, then the band can call these experiments a roaring success.

    The Big Sleep have presented a collection of often excellent songs of real substance, making for an album that warrants, for the most part, unmitigated attention; preferably through some decent speakers.

    The more monotonous parts of the album fade into the background--but their use of dynamics and technical prowess makes Natural Experiments a success. [Feb 2012, p.80]

    While the varied approach is commendable, there's no denying an impulse to repeat the speeding pop thrill of "Valentine" or the Sabbath-y throb swelling within "Four Wishes."
