  1. This is the album I've been waiting nearly 10 years for them to make. Better late than never.
  2. 80
    The lissom guitars of brothers Dallas and Travis Good still allow for thrilling detours. [Nov 2007, p.121]
  3. The first studio release by the Sadies in three years represents a big sonic advance.
  4. 80
    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]
  5. 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.
  6. On the heels of 2006's exceptional live double-disc, the Sadies' seventh studio album isn't their most ambitious work, but it ranks among their tightest.
  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.
