  1. It’s another inside-out move for Tegan & Sara; they’ve pulled apart self-doubt and found the self-regard that lines it.
  2. Sainthood was produced by Death Cab For Cutie's Chris Walla and Howard Reddekopp, allowing the album to take on aspects of both its predecessors while still feeling new, and per usual with this duo, impressively skillful. [Dec 2009, p.114]
  3. Tegan and Sara imagine love as a form of religion, complete with its own saints, sinners, and special netherworld VIP lounge reserved just for exes. It's a weighty idea, but any self-seriousness is saved by songs like the pulsing-synth herky-jerk 'Arrow.' [30 Oct 2009, p.57]
