    Very solid album. Another great one from this band. It's a shame so many are being extremely harsh since it's not as "heavy" as their previous efforts. I think its good for a band to try new things. If every album sounded the same that would be boring.

    The Men have developed into a band that does what it wants when it wants. New Moon is a great mix of classic rock, folk, and The Men's trademark dirty punk noise. Solid all the way through.

    It'll evoke memories of Wilco's Being There ("Open the Door"), GNR around Lies ("The Seeds"), and Neil Young doing "Big Time" ("Freaky").

    The Men almost casually demonstrate a mastery of song-based rock & roll that usually comes from decades of work.

    Tracks like Half Angel Half Light suggest the passion remains fully intact. [May 2013, p.96]
