  1. It’s brimming with curious melodies (like the darkly cute skews of the title track), rich poetic detail (as lush as the orange carpet in '16A'), and a truly generous spirit (you can listen to the whole damn thing over and over).
  2. The McGregors are ultimately at their best when their dynamic isn't overpowered by too many musical ideas.
  3. From the sound of the duo's new album, not much has changed since then. They're still in synch and still seem to be having a good time together. Except now they're making music that's joyous, infectious, and occasionally delicate (OK, many would say twee).
  4. It's not the sort of release that's going to really knock you out, but it's spry and sharp and arrives as just the perfect time in early summer.
  5. Sometimes it’s just too sweet for its own good, but true fans of the genre will eat this album right up.
  6. Lo-fi recording and lackluster production force the songs to rely on the comforting characteristics of the understated indie-twee-folk, of which there are too little to make it real appealing.
