  1. While mewithoutYou is still as ambiguous as ever with their music, they've never been as creative and daring as they are on Ten Stories.

    Ten Stories should easily please any mewithoutYou fan, but this is by no means pandering....11 musically and lyrically engaging stories. [Jun 2012]

    Ten Stories is at ease with its ambiguity and style-shifting.

    mewithoutYou managed to synthesize its various explorations into a richer sound, using the sort of palette necessary to adequately pummel the album's deep meditations while properly expressing the emotional potency they contain.

    This album is awesome. I'm pretty partial when it comes to mewithoutyou. However, just a warning, this is a lot different than Catch for UsThis album is awesome. I'm pretty partial when it comes to mewithoutyou. However, just a warning, this is a lot different than Catch for Us the Foxes and Brother, Sister. I would've probably given this higher than an 8 had they not made those 2 albums prior to this one. There are few parts that are spoken-word, but for the majority of the album, they kinda went with a folk-ish theme. It works but it's not a Catch for Us the Foxes (the BEST album by them) Expand
