  1. Beautiful, thematic, meticulous, revelatory, and challenging.
  2. Despite any bugaboos, he's a plain great songwriter, and Skelliconnection is firmly above average.
  3. 80
    At times reminiscent of Neil Young. [Sep 2006, p.139]
  4. Like his debut, it could use a bit more focus and some editing, but the basement hits feel is part of the charm with VanGaalen.
  5. Skelliconnection feels more like a series of singles and EPs rather than one statement.
  6. Skelliconnection--most of it, at least--suffers from restless legs: Instead of gathering another unassuming set of downer-pop, it kicks, bloops, bleeps, and occasionally charges, dropping back to the mellow moods only when it's otherwise exhausted.
  7. His music could be a good deal better than it is.
