    Seriously mellow, seriously good record from Low. Probably the best slowcore album you'll come across. The first 4 tracks are absolutely brilliant. The middle section has peaks and troughs while the final section is consistently good stuff again. It's not for everyone - I'm sure some people will find it a bit dreary but when you listen to this up close it's got some stunning stuff on it.

  1. Just plain beautiful... carefully harmonized vocals and pellucid guitar hooks that rarely lapse into merely languid melodies. [2/16/2001, p.98]

    It's impossible to discern whether Mimi Parker's newfound assertiveness as a harmony singer was inspired by, or the inspiration for, this more aggressive batch of songs, but it's this record's signal grace. [Apr 2001, p.158]

    It's not too ambitious to suggest few other releases this year will match its grace, humanity and power.... A magnificent album.
