  1. Like Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, Quit +/or Fight flirts with perfection, a cohesive collection of all-too-fleeting pleasures.
  2. Quit +/or Fight may lack the immediate melodic punch of the band's debut-- it forsakes pristine strums for skewering electric guitar and scrappier arrangements-- but what the record sacrifices in warmth, it makes up for in atmospherics.
  3. Imagine a highly narcotic Shins with even more subtle instrumentation and you're getting somewhere close.
  4. A work far more potent and lasting than their debut.
  5. [Has] a mysterious backwoods vibe worthy of Murmur-era REM.
  6. Like R.E.M.'s vaunted Murmur, these songs are most adept at creating worlds for the listener to enter and engage, which may be different with every spin.
  7. 40
    Nearly buries itself in interesting ideas that are ultimately unrewarding. [#69, p.98]
