  1. The ease of the instrumentation and the hushed vocals do their part to loosen you up as the music whisks you away to the innocence of childhood and teenage dreams that have never left the recesses of your mind.
  2. Despite being monstrously homogenous and boring, The Fallen Leaf Pages is too much of a melodic accomplishment to dismiss.
  3. 70
    Putnam's longing voice and rusty guitar strum easily envisions a rustic dwelling, yet their studio strengths reveal a Pink Floyd fetish. [Jun 2005, p.85]
  4. Stately, midtempo tunes whose immaculate production belies the darkness at their core.
  5. 60
    Their drowsy lullabies and minor-key melodies are now so commonplace... that much of it seems unremarkable. [Dec 2005, p.109]
  6. 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.
  7. Put simply, this music is slow, the same slow soggy tempo the whole way through.
