    Totally brilliant, mind-meltingly good, and as different from Secret Wars as possible, except that both of these albums could change your life.

    Oneida's most cohesive and beautiful record to date. [#68, p.105]
  3. The Wedding is certainly a new direction in some ways, but it’s still the same brainiac rock that Oneida has been dishing out for the past eight years.
  4. Oneida have never sounded more ambitious, yet they’ve kept their proggy impulses on a short leash; the flourishes serve the music, not vice versa.
  5. The Wedding is certainly one of the best records this band has released and, more important, one of the better rock records released this year.
  6. Psychedelic craziness. [30 Apr 2005, p.64]

    Awesome record! Oneida once again puts the whammy on the listener by completely going into different territory never explored on their previous releases. But hey, when band members come up with names like Hanoi Jane, Kid Millions and Bobby Matador, should one be surprised by the sudden stylistic change with each new release? This is by far the band's most assured and accomplished release in their brief career, but the question is, will anyone (except the esoteric listener) ever be exposed to this brilliant record? I certainly hope so. Expand
