Alternative PressOne of the few albums that deserves its Pitchfork-generated hype. [Jul 2006, p.204]
Entertainment WeeklySure, this speaker-frying style has been done before, but rarely with such confidence. [12 May 2006, p.83]
UrbThe group maintains its own modern, unique sound while capturing and reimagining the familiar. [May 2006, p.95]
SpinThere are interesting moments... but too often they're smothered in a formless buzz of guitar, samples, voilin, harmonica--you name it. [Jul 2006, p.87]

GarrettSep 8, 2006Sounds like more upbeat, energetic MBV. I like this album a lot, it's not amazing but it's definitely good :D
antoniopJun 23, 2006It's a very good album, but the shadow of My bloody valentine and Spiritualized it is too much evident.
