  1. 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.
  2. Few other modern musicians are as adept at taking such a tried and tested genre and making it utterly their own.
  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. Although these songs do run a bit short, Sixes and Sevens features 20 delectable pop songs, each unique in its own way.
  5. In his relaxed baritone Mr. Green sings thoroughly incongruous lyrics: easy gross-outs, free associations and darker tidings.
  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. Under The Radar

    Sixes & Sevens is another flawlessly inspired slice of unique pop from America's most underappreciated sonic magician. [Spring 2008, p.83]

    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.
