    [An] expansive and impressive sixth album.

    An even stronger effort, one that avoids the sometimes-frantic pace that marred that earlier album a little.

    Stars and Satellites is that unified masterpiece. Like the soft, warm flicker of flames in a fireplace, this album will take you in.

    Stars and Satellites manages to find that elusive balance between workmanlike precision and 3:00 a.m. vulnerability.

    This is the sound of growing old gracefully while still maintaining a sparkle in your eye.

    All things considered, Stars and Satellites is easily this band's best effort yet.

    Stars and Satellites possesses moments when the band seems to be in overdrive, but overall it's much more introspective.

    By sticking mostly to introspective songwriting, the quintet ignores the strongest tool in its arsenal. It's no surprise that the most memorable tunes are the few where they let their fingers fly.
