  • Summary: The Philadelphia-based band led by Jonathan Pfeffer releases its sophomore album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 4
  2. Mixed: 0 out of 4
  3. Negative: 0 out of 4
  1. [Pfeffer] pruned this album to an essential thirty-two minutes, in which every note (and there are a lot of them) has its purpose and every bizarre genre switch leads somewhere important and ends before wearing out its welcome.
  2. So Embarrassing is a bold change in direction for Capillary Action, but one that pays off as well as one could hope.
  3. While Pfeffer’s lyrics are engaging, they’re sometimes inaccessible in delivery. Despite this, So Embarrassing is an interesting personal take on prog rock’s roots, and therefore quite a step in the right direction.
  4. Pfeffer is only 21 and already he has released an album that possesses a very original sound as well as an impressive amount of musicianship.
