  • Summary: This is Slint guitarist David Pajo's first solo LP under his own name (well, at least half of his own name).

  1. 91
    A lovely, eerie album that plays like a digital memory of a lo-fi lullaby. [Aug 2005, p.103]
  2. The gravity and changing tides of this engaging self-titled effort help David Pajo warm up, if not transcend the post-rock tag.
  3. 80
    Pajo is not, and will never be, a great singer.... His guitar playing, though, is as quietly inventive as ever. [Jul 2005, p.96]
  4. 74
    Pajo clearly knows how to tinker without overcrowding, losing or insulting the pleasant, acoustic backbone of his songs. [#16, p.91]
  5. He continues his obsession with broken-hearted collages and interstellar folk music. [25 Jun 2005, p.64]
  6. Pajo is no milestone, but it's a modest, quiet success that will leave you wondering. [11 Aug 2005, p.72]
  7. This is about as close to ambient as a singer-songwriter can get without mixing himself out altogether.
