    Sixes & Sevens is another flawlessly inspired slice of unique pop from America's most underappreciated sonic magician. [Spring 2008, p.83]
  3. Listeners looking for lyrical meaning will still be disappointed, searching in vain for hidden significance in these nonsensical love song lines. A word of advice: It's best to just accept his words as conduits for his dreamy voice, and give in to his charming tunes.
  4. Sixes & Sevens might be a drawn-out mess, but break it down to its constituent parts and you suddenly have rich pickings for the perfect mix-tape.
  5. Although these songs do run a bit short, Sixes and Sevens features 20 delectable pop songs, each unique in its own way.
  6. Through it all, Green’s show tune-y vocals are at center stage, and though the compositions are often too busy and can detract from his rolling lyrical intricacies, Sixes and Sevens is a very good record, if still a step short of great.
  7. In his relaxed baritone Mr. Green sings thoroughly incongruous lyrics: easy gross-outs, free associations and darker tidings.

    I'm kind of surprised the reviews are so negative. I've really been enjoying this album quite a bit since it's release. I'm kind of surprised the reviews are so negative.
