    Sadly, not their best work, although scattered with some great songs. I feel the band left their signature sound heard on TLML, thankfully rekindled on their third album 'Big TV'. 'Better Than Us' an incredible song.

    The album delivers on the promise. {Feb 2011, p.104]
  2. Ritual is an enthralling album, highlighting a band flexing their musical muscles, trying to grow and add new sounds to their existing palette.
