  1. These twelve tracks make for diverting and beguiling company for the fifty or so minutes spent with them.
  2. It's a sweet hotpot of northern European record-making.
  3. Uncut
    60
    Tinkling lo-fi arrangements evoke the scarred spookiness of mid-period Sparklehorse, rendering the whole charmingly (and sometimes chillingly) child-like. [Sep 2009, p.88]
  4. There's not a truly objectionable moment on the album, but neither are there many memorable ones, making it an album as difficult to genuinely like as to dislike.
  5. The personality is still a little cutesy, half-baked at times and downright cultish at others (“You! Are! So! Beau! Ti! Ful! To! Us!/ We! Want! To! Keep! You! As! Our! Pets!”), but it coheres, and makes a good focal point when the music fails to. That’s fails to, not fails.
  6. The unavoidable truth is, Mum is struggling to find itself.
  7. Under The Radar
    50
    Sing Along is both a frustration and incorporeal mood waiting to be coaxed out of hibernation. [Fall 2009, p.65]
