  1. Nothing here is as generous as the hooks found on the band's sole hit (you may remember "Natural One" from the Kids soundtrack), but there's plenty of mournful rock for the mopers in the world.

    A rock record that sounds a lot like Sebadoh with an aspiring guitar hero. [Mar 2003, p.94]
  3. For impassioned Barlow fans, The New Folk Implosion's minute forward progress means a lot.
  4. Barlow has stripped away the beats that made it interesting and blurred the line between this band and his others.

    Very dull. Disappointing for Lou Barlow fans. Hoped for better but, got what I expected.
