    I've been a big fan of Metacritic for the past three years and never felt compelled enough to write a review until now. Maybe it because I am huge fan of their first album and EP, but I couldn't disagree more with the direction of these poor reviews. If you ever get a chance to see them live, do it. Will it change your life? No. But they're a great band that continues to I've been a big fan of Metacritic for the past three years and never felt compelled enough to write a review until now.

    Boring....heard this all before...money and jealousy (from the scary piano playing lady singer) got to their heads...and based on all the major music magazine reviews....this album sucks!

  1. The album’s cleanly produced and confidently performed, and the material has been polished up until it shines brightly at first. But a few repetitions quickly drain Remind Me Where the Light Is of much of its impact.
  2. This is an album that’s extremely clean--the spic-and-span sonics might be the work of producer Michael Patterson. Even if it might help Great Northern achieve some broader success, all that cleansing has buffed away much of the band’s character.
  3. The production on their sophomore effort, Remind Me Where the Light Is, is both a blessing and a curse, inflating some effects to dazzling prominence while pushing a host of crummy, outdated ideas to the forefront.
