  • Summary: While the trio of Roger Miller, Clint Conley and Peter Prescott typically wait a few decades between albums, this third LP follows just two years after their second.

  1. As the price of success, The Obliterati faces significantly higher expectations. Once again, though, Burma succeeds and surprises by playing to its strengths while moving forward.
  2. Last time, the surprise was that after 20 years of hiatus, the band was just as good as ever. This time, they're even better, more cohesive and confident, louder and funnier, still learning from life and each other, and using that experience to create ever more compelling music.
  3. They’ve managed to produce the best American rock record of the year so far.
  4. Making up for lost time never sounded so good. [Aug 2006, p.88]
  5. Kicks with a passion and inventiveness that's seen them steam up the specs of everyone from Moby to Graham Coxon. [17 Jun 2006, p.39]
  6. The Obliterati just sounds like the new Burma album.
  7. What really lifts this out of the ordinary is the undeniable craft that has gone into the song writing.
