    This album is fucking awful. Good reviews for horseshit like this are why music criticism is a dying art.

    Trying too hard to be weird. Randomly assembled bits can pass off as masterminded these days? Pitchfork, once again, killing rock and roll, one boring art school project band at a time. How could they even call this "rock"!? You can't rock out to this. This is thinking music, made for critics, without any true grit or feeling.

    They comfortably hang in that frustrating chasm between jazz and pop. [Fall 2007, p.79]

    It just might be a masterpiece all over again. [Nov 2007, p.118]

    It's an extraordinary and compelling celebration of a hardcore punk classic. [Oct 2007, p.71]
