    Fascinatingly oblique songs are plaed with confidence and laid-back precision, rather than smothered by a desperation to impress. [Mar 2005, p.96]
  2. Play[s] out like a fresh discovery that's strangely familiar--a '60s soul in a 21st-century outfit.
  3. We Are Little Barrie is a stunning debut for sure, and the kind of record both old-school classic rock dads and groove-loving young kids should be clambering over each other to buy.
  4. While the same pared-down, consistent groove that makes Little Barrie such an immediate grabber might play them out quickly, it's a tasty, gristly flavor of the month. [#16, p.126]
  5. 70
    Barrie Cadogan is a guitar phenomenon. [Mar 2005, p.102]
  6. So retro it's pratcially an historical document. [Mar 2005, p.100]
  7. In their relentless slavery to the groove, the songs fall hopelessly flat. [12 Feb 2005, p.51]
