    The critics have got it wrong. This is certainly in the same league as Twin Cinema but it is more consistent and there are absolute gems like We End Up Together, Crash Years and at least three other tracks that rank with any of the best NP songs. A band of geniuses writing and arranging as well as they ever have.

    The sharp riffs only occasionally add up to anything with a pulse, but the Pornos have always been bad mathematicians. Archaeology -- that's their subject.
  2. The music is hearty and sure of itself. It's the kind of pop that, a few decades back, might have sneaked into the Top 40.
  3. While it does have moments where the listener is reminded of why they love power-pop, Together ends up sounding too vocally divided as an album and at times too top-heavy with orchestral arrangements.
