    This album is vastly underrated. It'll easily fit in my top ten. It's an examination of spiritual redemption during these trying times - very deep, very beautiful, breathtaking at times, and the best work the Radar Bros. have ever done. It's the most spiritually enlightening album since Sufjan's Seven Swans. I am grateful to be a human alive to hear this masterwork.

    Another solid release from the most unhearlded L.A. band (with exception to Acetone, R.I.P.) over the past dozen years ! Buy this record and see what you've been missing...Those who have followed this band already agree!

    I agree with the last comments! Try this album if you like Grandaddy, Radiohead, The Flaming lips and so on...!

  1. The Fallen Leaf Pages is the kind of record that holds no surprises or excitement, the kind that sounds over before it reaches the halfway point.
  2. Despite being monstrously homogenous and boring, The Fallen Leaf Pages is too much of a melodic accomplishment to dismiss.
  3. The Fallen Leaf Pages settles comfortably into the band's canon, delivering no surprises, no gimmicks, no gags, no quirks and no affectations.
