    Space Ducks is a must have for fans, and a superb introduction for those unfamiliar with his work.

    Johnston has made and most importantly shared a very good record here, one that stands as a reminder of his immense talent, of his longevity, of his kindness in spreading the benefit of his skill among younger, adoring fan-bands and yes, if you must, his power to overcome those much discussed mental problems.
  3. 80
    Despite the surreal subject matter Johnston's soundtrack for his own comic book is romantic and deeply human.
  4. 70
    With Ducks, Johnston and cohorts craft a soundtrack that works as a cohesive album.

    Johnston's own songs, though jauntily paced, come with familiar themes of isolation, despair and the cruelty of love. [May 2013, p.73]

    Along with Johnston's clanging, winningly direct originals, there are contributions from fellow alt-rock comrades such as Eleanor Friedberger and, perhaps more surprisingly, Jake Bugg. [May 2013, p.104]

    Even if you take a rain check on that multimedia trip [interactive comic book], there's still much to enjoy. [May 2013, p.94]
