  1. Just the right mixture of sonics.
  2. The fuzz and drone of Today is the Day is a refreshing look back at the band’s mid-90s, Painful/Electropura era.
  3. Today is the Day ranks as an outstanding album on its own merits, but its timing is also impeccable. Arriving at the end of this year, it will hopefully silence those who have accused Yo La Tengo of sliding into mid-career pleasantness.
  4. Whatever their motives, this return to rock and roll is a welcome one.
  5. Yo La Tengo are still one of the most talented acts going, and whether they're maturing or simply cooling off these days, they're still evolving.
  6. More straight-ahead and accessible than their last few between-album releases... Today is the Day is a nice, noisy complement to 1995's Camp Yo La Tengo.
  7. The slapdash feel will remind fans of the band's early days. [30 Oct 2003, p.93]
  8. This handsomely eclectic collection merits inclusion as an essential addition to Yo La Tengo's richly diverse catalogue.
  9. Today Is the Day! is much better than most between-albums rehashes.
  10. Music fans of the world rejoice--Yo La Tengo can once again hear the heart beating as one.
