    There are two songs which grip you from the start and once you've listened to the cd a few times they all grow on you!

    Decent soundtrack overall. Fans of The Magnetic Fields will be familiar with the 69 Love Songs material which provides the best tracks on this collection. Some other good tracks for the avid fan to find here. The album works well as a whole with the songs suiting the film which is also worth checking out.

    The five new songs all feature Merritt's meaningfully inexpressive monotone, shrewdly minimal arrangements and flatly clever lyrics. [Jan 2004, p.107]
  2. The four new Magnetic Fields tracks, while good, add little more to Merritt’s considerable repertoire than a few catchy melodies, with scarcely a clever line to boast.
  3. Merritt's lyrics remain as sharp and funny ("We belong together/Like sex and violence," he croons on "Heather Heather"), but it's the ever-inventive arrangements--like the offbeat blend of ukulele and harmonium on "One April Day"--that make these gems especially memorable.
