  1. Panda Park is uplifting, mesmerizing, glittery, and unapologetically psychedelic while sounding rooted in both '70s prog and skewed latter-day punk rock.
  2. Time and time again throughout Panda Park, 90 Day Men prove themselves a rare breed -- a band capable of embracing tradition without becoming overburdened by it.
  3. If you get a kick out of The Fucking Champs riffing on Bach with "Air on a G String," you're on the road to Panda Park.
  4. Panda Park might not be one of the easiest albums to get into this year, but given proper time, it reveals itself as one of the best.
  5. The band have finally mastered the monstrous proportions of their diffuse talents and arranged them in ways that are wholly satisfying and distinctly unique.
  6. They walk a fine line between startlingly fresh songs and caricatured styles that don’t mix well.
  7. 'Panda Park' is a strange record, though whether you think it's any good or not depends on your tolerance levels.
