  1. An important, modestly beautiful album that is both heartbreaking and conversely optimistic--an exceptional piece of work that begs to be discovered. [#7]
  2. 90
    Tender, wise, compassionate and magnanimous, it's a special, special record for anyone who has ever hurt. [Dec 2004, p.114]
  3. Weightlifting is stellar TCS, expressing everything great about the band.
  4. A triumph tempered by doubt, an accomplished collection of conflicted feelings and guarded optimism.
  5. 70
    It's frequently lush and lovely. [Dec 2004, p.150]
  6. It's a welcome, bliss-smacked comeback. [#13, p.121]
