    Weekends is an inspired assortment of astutely executed ideas packed into 12 flowing pieces that deserves a wider audience than its likely to receive.

    Funny Girl is so good it makes you think a parallel career as huge stars ought to be in the offing. [May 2012, p.103]

    The music on Weekends is balanced between bright, up-tempo numbers and cheerless explorations of loneliness and heartache, but even on the dance tunes, the somber lyrics keep things from getting too exuberant.

    Weekends captures the ambivalent mélange of feelings that makes it damn hard to leave the couch after a crushing break-up.

    Weekends is an overall success for the band, and a good showcase for the band's ability to change between genres effectively.

    Considering how the lyrical content and flat as a rug singing in Weekends was written for an elementary school child to understand, they probably should've kept it that way; it occasionally downgrades the songs to a point where they are unable to rise above their cheesiness.

    Too many have the feel of a low-budget production, and not in the loveable, lo-fi way. [#39, p.75]
