    To Find Me Gone won't win any awards for wheel reinvention, but it's no sterile exercise in genre classicism. [Jul 2006, p.101]
  2. To Find Me Gone shows a band as adept at bucking trends as they are at invoking tradition.
  3. Pleasant if undemanding listening.
  4. This is a decidedly unhurried album, and it takes a while to find the small pleasures within each song. But once you do, it’s really fantastic.
  5. Really, though, Cabic needs more “Red Lantern Girls,” a gauzy folk workout that hides and seeks until a brutish electric guitar prods the rhythm and heads for higher ground. It is everything the rest of the album is not: aggressive, terse, and surprising.

    What I like to call a "go-to" album, especially for those headphonic moments of wistfulness and nostalgia. Certainly not innovative, but What I like to call a "go-to" album, especially for those headphonic moments of wistfulness and nostalgia. Certainly not innovative, but gorgeous, impeccably arranged songs top to bottom. For me, an early contender for album of the year. Expand

    Many songs on here are good, forward thinking indie-folk - while some other songs are underdeveloped.
