  1. Listening to The Weakerthans makes me feel young and happy and hopeful.
  2. Their steadily, sturdily conventional rock and roll is more compelling and rich than most people would admit as they're busy gawking at the sight of the Amazing Lyricist and his Kinda Weak Voice.
  3. The band sounds quieter and richer than ever.
  4. 80
    This is a rock record, and Samson's band functions as the sharp teeth to his lucid tongue. [Jan 2008, p.112]
  5. Musically, Reunion has flashes of Wilco-esque brilliance, but it's mostly a blank slate on which Samson is free to squiggle his wise, weary verse.
  6. I can identify the album’s merits and appreciate the craftsmanship but, to employ my second cliché in too short a span of time, the magic is gone.
  7. The music is terribly dull, like a watered-down Weezer. [Dec 2007, p.125]
