  1. 90
    A genre-defying, glorious mess of an album. [#54, p.109]
  2. It's beautiful, weird, and difficult to love.
  3. 80
    A weird and wonderful record. [Jul 2002, p.120]
  4. The Golden Dove has moments of significant achievement.
  5. 70
    A distinctly melancholic affair. [Aug 2002, p.102]
  6. 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.
  7. It's like the pop equivalent to the 692-page fantasy epic, only it makes less sense.
