  1. A dazzling collection of songs, Putting The Days To Bed cements Roderick's reputation as one of the best songwriters working today.
  2. It's apparent that great care was taken in the making of this record as the meticulous production radiates through the music on every song.

    It's Roderick's lyrics that really grip. [Nov 2006, p.118]
  4. 70
    Bed... opts to crank the volume knobs a little, with wildly divergent results. [#73, p.100]
  5. Mastermind John Roderick packs an endearing, nuanced indie-boy voice and a bucketload of bittersweet pop-rock melodies. [13 Jul 2006, p.105]
  6. Even though Days To Bed is littered with the sort of tunes that indie pop fans obsessively search for, it suffers the same fate as the group’s previous releases. By the time you reach the final 25% of the album, you’re more than ready to go to bed — and not in a good way.
  7. If in the future Roderick puts more brain power behind making his music as adventurous as his lyrics, the Long Winters' albums should only get better and better.
