    You get something that's very lovely and poetic and melancholy and vulnerable and unspeakably beautiful. [No. 100, p.54]

    Neil Hagerty in the producer's chair is a good fit for an album that deliberately blurs the pre- and post-Nirvana boundaries. [Aug 2013, p.92]

    Blumberg attains an excellence on Unreal that isn’t usually expected of a debut album.

    The album has an easy-going pace to it, opening up a little more with each graceful transition and quiet revelation.

    As Blumberg puts on his Neil Young hat and laments "I've got some things to do/Some private things to do" on closer "The Plan," one can't help but think that, although perhaps overly self-indulgent at times, Hebronix could well prove fruitful.

    Perhaps Blumberg didn’t know at the start that the Hebronix release would lead to a split from his band, but most of the six songs on Unreal catch him in the mood to say goodbye.

    It's all tastefully executed, but there is painfully little to get excited about here. [Sep 2013, p.104]
