  1. The Beachwood Sparks balance deft restraint with hot guitar licks, making Once We Were Trees the best Byrds album since Sweetheart of the Rodeo.
  2. By scaling warm guitar lines, keen melodies, and a valuable sense of history, these Sparks continue to fly.
  3. Beachwood Sparks do their Sixties So-Cal thing so well, you kind of wish they'd stick with it and leave the genre blending and apocalyptic disillusionment to Radiohead.
