  1. A subtle, great album that moves along with a pastoral feel but never feels boring.

    Wholly ambitious and mostly successful. [Feb 2003, p.72]

    The textured ambience is a simple, sumptuous recipe that is not wholly unprecedented, but certainly welcome. [Dec 2002, p.80]
  4. Where others in this vein opt for a hazy, nebulous cloud of half-remembered dreams, Manitoba's music is direct and unassuming while still remaining evocative.
  5. 100
    It's achingly beautiful without relying on maudlin sentimentality to win the listener over. Genius.

    First song fantastic! (10/10); rest of the album (3/10) forgettable. Like a single with filler--and the length of CD (39 minutes) attests to this.
