    'No Cities Left' is an album for the old romantic. Its not the most pleasing to the ear at first but once listend to there is a hidden beauty that need to be nurtured by the ear drum. But once its in there it sticks and the great lyrics are evident. 'Lost in The Plot' is the finest moment on the album and strangely enough seems to be an odd track, but ia all works and 'No Cities Left' is an album for the old romantic.

'Lost in The Plot' is the finest moment on the album and strangely enough seems to be an odd track, but ia all works and will be (I FEEL) a lost classic album. Brilliant! Expand

    This is what got me into the expansive and constantly-impressive realm of Canadian indie rock, and I can't think of anything better to start such an intrepid appreciation. Gold Star Murray Lightburn.

    A drizzly doomsday masterpiece. [Nov 2004, p.108]
  2. A curious amalgamation of styles that is ultimately quirky and compelling.
  3. [An] intense and epic album.
