  • Summary: This is the second full-length album for the Los Angeles-based indie band, who are now labelmates of Omaha's Bright Eyes. Fans of the TV program "Boy Meets World" (all three of you) may recognize guitarist Blake Sennett, who played Joey on that show. (Singer Jenny Lewis has also guested on numerous sitcoms over the years.) Expand

  1. An old-school indie-rock disc reminiscent of Bettie Serveert, Rainer Maria, and Liz Phair.
  2. 90
    One of the best indie rock albums you're going to hear this year.
  3. A wonderful balance of beautiful indie rock and subtle country.
  4. 80
    Sentimental post-country tunes knock against acute lyrics about rent, overbearing parents and other aspects of the pre-midlife crisis, as rock-out moments keep grimness at bay. [#11, p.140]
  5. 80
    Producer Mike Mogis [gives] these delicate songs a sheen that was lacking on their 2001 debut. [Jul 2003, p.114]
  6. A dynamic album with intriguing lyrics, a country/folk shimmer, and explosive pop moments.
  7. The songs are pretty, the guitars are mellow, all complimentary and measured; dull, in other words.
