  1. It’s a fitting near-farewell for this disarmingly tender and enjoyable album.
  2. It is indeed a credit to all involved that this album sounds as ego-less and cohesive as it does. The performances throughout also retain a loose, lived-in quality that strikes an even balance between purposeful songwriting and the pleasant surprises of in-studio “mistakes”.
  3. The bands' unselfconscious appreciation of each other brings something more: a buoyant confidence that infuses every subtly orchestrated note.

    It's quite lovely, and manages to be simultaneously mournful and innocent-sounding. [Oct 2009, p.106]
  5. 80
    Geographic's signature--naive oreintal pop meets introverted occidental indie--is bewitchingly realised here in 12 gossamer songs. [Nov 2009, p.101]
  6. Sure, it is unfocussed and diffuse in places, but it still succeeds in deploying the several and varied voices of its collaborating creators to produce something that ultimately just about hangs together with a valiant, if tattered sort of coherence.
  7. Sometimes, the result is as frail and lovely as worn lace; sometimes it's just threadbare.
  8. Overall, Two Sunsets' twee pop aesthetics lattice into a misty, pastoral inertness.
