  • Summary: The Canadian alt-country rockers return with their latest album.

  1. This is the album I've been waiting nearly 10 years for them to make. Better late than never.
  2. The first studio release by the Sadies in three years represents a big sonic advance.

    Their studio albums have been moving away from virtuoso instrumentals toward vocal songs, of which this album has some excellent examples. [Dec 2007, p.104]
  4. Canada's greatest contribution to Americana since Blue Rodeo have been consistently topping themselves with each new album, and their sixth, New Seasons, is another triumph.
  5. As time passes, it sounds samey, though rich nevertheless.
  6. The group synthesizes pretty much anything you could lump under a general Americana label--bluegrass, country, alt-country, folk rock--to create an idiosyncratic sound more West Coast than Nashville.
  7. This album isn't on par with the Sadies' searing early material or recent similar country-rock albums from the likes of Oakley Hall or Okkervil River.

    Having The Jayhawks's Gary Louris produce this record has had wonderful consequences. The songs are more rounded and well written.
