    Delivery is reminiscent of built to spill and some riffs are near-copies of pixies and interpol. Nonetheless Skeleton rocks. Tighter than most BTS albums. One of the best of 2006.

    What the band does best is still straight-ahead pop-rock. [#13, p.97]
  2. Admittedly, the whiny Martsch-inspired delivery of singer dude Christian Hjelm will be a turnoff for some, but the Figurines' compositional skill shows real promise, and their endearing enthusiasm should win them many fans over here.
  3. It's a feat the band manages to pull off again and again, track after track, over the course of Skeleton, and the true heart of the record: making the familiar seem fresh and giddy pop seem like indie manna.
