    I can listen to this album all the way through, on several different days in the week. There are VERY few albums I can do that with these days. Their harmonies are forged in blood. Love it.

    I can listen to this CD multiple times and never get tired of it. It always seems to put me in a great mood.

    So this is what guitar and power pop is all about. And what if the songs resemble past gems? They're all gems in their own right. It's very obvious to me: this is one of the albums of the decade (Well if you're a fan of Mouse On Mars then don't you even try to listen to it)

    Good music for hipsters, teenage girls and their mothers.

    This is a great record. Instantly accessable and full of gradual pleasures. I find this to be the best female pop-rock record to Liz Phair's self titled record. I am sure they hate the word "girlish" but Tegan and Sara are best described as maturing & girlish. They'll surprise you with their depth. This is a GREAT pop record, you can't go wrong with it.

    The best indie pop since the Darling Buds. And better.

    An amazingly addicting album! I had to get their old albums. Although not as consistent as So Jealous, they've been coming out with amazing stuff for several years. It's about time they get more notice.

    OK... The lyrics and arrangements may be a bit sophopmore and derivative, but this is some fuggin' catchy music. Pop/Rock at it's damn near finest. "Downtown" is one of the best lovesongs of all time.

    A bit on a digression from their last album but they're still trying.

    This is truly the most interesting CD I've heard in years, from start to finish. I'm positively addicted.

  1. The key to 'So Jealous' is that it's a mall-prancing hit jukebox but with, y'know proper non-bubblegum pop sensibilities.
  2. Q Magazine
    An instantly loveable collection of sky-punching, new wave pop glory. [May 2005, p.117]
  3. Vocally weaving and ducking, they drag up memories of Voice of the Beehive, or a Siamese version of Susannah Hoffs from the Bangles. What stops them becoming an annoying pop hydra is their unadorned directness and sharp pop hooks.
