    Sweet and insubstantial. [Nov 2004, p.140]

    It would seem that Earlimart have elected to frequently and blatantly mimic their spaced-out friends Grandaddy... and--to a lesser extent--the tightly wound apartment-rock of The Postal Service and Plus/Minus. [#7]
  4. It’s safe, unobtrusive, and ubiquitously “indie”, if well produced and memorably melodic, at times.

    Espinoza's melodies evaporate in a way Smith's never did. [9 Dec 2004, p.180]

It's nothing particularly Earlimart sounds like the bastard child of Air and Elliott Smith, with a couple of other influences thrown in. It's nothing particularly new or original, but worth listenting to nonetheless. Earlimart has a strong sense of melody that's worth sticking around for. Full Review »

    A wonderful, beautiful ode to Smith. This is a remarkable album, losing points only because at times it sounds to eerialy like Smith. A wonderful, beautiful ode to Smith.
