  1. It's just as easy to loathe this record as it is to love it, but enough moments of merit exist to stifle any doubts over the quality of Rodriguez-Lopez' output as a solo artist.
  2. Under The Radar
    60
    Old Money is as trippy and fantastical as Rodriguez Lopez's work with Mars Volta without the beat-you-over-the-head prog fury and yelped vocals intensity that causes much of Volta's music to bend under its own pretentious weight. [Winter 2009, p.77]
  3. Uncut
    60
    Old Money is rather more sharply honed--indeed, only the lack of vocals distinguishes this from a Mars Volta record. [Feb 2009, p.93]
  4. Mojo
    60
    This bombastic, cacophonic, but endlessly impressive set would make a fine soundtrack for dancing madly among the wreckage [of capitalism]. [Feb 2009, p.113]
  5. Q Magazine
    40
    Once again it's a showcase for some dextrous prog-jazz metal guitar work that on occasion veers dangerously close to tuneless skronking. [Mar 2009, p.104]
