  1. Parts & Labor are exciting, both on a gut level and an aesthetic one, but the shift to a more sedate sound hasn’t pushed them in directions that emphasize this enough, at least so far.
  2. Under The Radar

    This new four-piece lineup seems to allow for a more diverse sonic palate with only a minimal amount of lost vigor. [Fall 2008, p.78]
  3. Receivers is what die-hard fans refer to as the record too far.
  4. Mojo
    60
    On opener 'Satellites,' with Neu!-like locomotion, big guitars and electronics, and melodic twists, they trump their better-known neighbours. [Dec 2008, p.111]
