  1. 90
    A genre-defying, glorious mess of an album. [#54, p.109]
  2. 80
    A weird and wonderful record. [Jul 2002, p.120]
  3. It's beautiful, weird, and difficult to love.
  4. The Golden Dove has moments of significant achievement.
  5. Weaves enchanting pagan ditties out of cello and euphonium, some cornball New Wave moves, and the serpentine economy of Timony's keyboards and Renaissance-faire guitar.
  6. 70
    A distinctly melancholic affair. [Aug 2002, p.102]
  7. It's like the pop equivalent to the 692-page fantasy epic, only it makes less sense.
