    What an amazing album. A more 80's inspired sound base then their debut, The Rhumb Line, but with results just the same. Go get this album, definitely worth it.

    Disappointing return from orchestral indie types. [July 2011, p. 117]

    [Cellist Alexandra Lawn's] expressive and engaging vocal contribution on You And I Know--along with its woozy, waltzy rhythms and shoegazey guitars--make this the only truly memorable song to be found on this otherwise disappointingly, frustratingly ephemeral collection.

    Stopping short of outright pop and heading in a direction that has yet to fully materialise, let's hope things eventually progress for Ra Ra Riot as well as they started.
