  1. This is CocoRosie's best long-player yet, and a sure contender for album of the year.
  2. The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn's densely packed sounds and ideas are a lot to process, but they're what makes this album rewarding on repeated listens.

    This is a larger-sounding, less homespun set than thte sisters' previous two albums. [May 2007, p.102]
  4. This new record has a genuinely hopeful and perhaps truthful center which drips with promise but elsewhere lacks excitement, eroticism, soul, humor, and breadth.
  5. The album suffers from a lack of focus. [May 2007, p.67]
  6. It's often cute, rarely precious. But it also has some sort of "concept." And hard as it may try, it isn't Bjork. It isn't even Deerhoof.
  7. Once they could juggle being both captivating and grating. Today, they're just the latter.
