    An increased technical sophistication, a broader stylistic range, and a more ambitious outlook. [Oct/Nov 2012, p.127]

    This isn't the best Oh Sees album, but at least they probably won't wait too long to try again.

    Their 14th album sees them once again focusing on stripped down Nuggets-era garage rock. [Oct 2012, p.107]

    Thee Oh Sees construct a serious approach to a non-serious existence, placing value upon both craft and childishness.

    Beside Putrifiers II's guitar-fuelled thrills are a number of moments that find Thee Oh See's catching their winklepinkers on the pavement as they attempt to side step into more experimental, psychedelic territory.

    His [John Dwyer's] experiments seem less about evolution and progress, and more about exploring every permutation of his influences that are mathematically available to him. While that still makes for some decent songs, it's not nearly as exhilarating now that Thee Oh Sees' mix 'n' match methodology is so plainly evident to all but the most casual listeners.
